May 2016, ©2006
Statics: Analysis and Design of Systems in Equilibrium, by Sheri D. Sheppard of Stanford University, and Benson H. Tongue, University of California, Berkeley, offers a student-focused approach to Statics. With a strong emphasis on drawing free body diagrams, use of a structured problem-solving methodology, inclusion of real-world case studies, and robust pedagogy coupled with a truly engaging writing style, reviewers alike have praised this new Statics text. Additionally, this first edition has benefited from a comprehensive and thorough accuracy check by 15 experienced professors, and has been reviewed by more than 200 Statics and Dynamics professors.
The text seeks to improve students’ abilities to map their understanding to more realistic engineering situations, enabling them to more effectively break down complex problems into manageable parts, and thus, become more effective engineering students and ultimately, professional engineers.
The authors do not compromise on rigor. Instead this series demonstrates the required rigor in the larger context of engineering work, decision making, problem solving, and understanding and impacting the man-made world.
This text is an unbound, three hole punched version.
