Description

Engineering Mechanics is print only.



Engineering Mechanics is an ideal introductory
text for first-year engineering students covering
the three basic topic areas: statics, introductory
dynamics and introductory strength of materials.


Each chapter contains worked examples
and self-assessment exercises to encourage
students to test their own skills and knowledge
as they progress.
