** About the book** ENGINEERING MECHANICS: Statics is one of the most important and fundamental course in engineering. The objective of this book is to impart knowledge of fundamental concepts and to gain skill of identifying, formulating and solving engineering problems and also to apply concepts of statics in solving real life problems.
The book starts with an introduction to mechanics and goes on to cover concepts of statics like system of forces, equilibrium, analysis of structures, centroid, moment of inertial, friction and stress – strain. The topics are covered in an easy to understand manner. Since problem solving is critical in engineering mechanics, the solutions to the problems are given in a systematic and step-wise manner. |
