The new 3rd SI editions of two of the most successful engineering texts ever published have undergone substantial change and revision. Ferdinand Beer and Russell Johnston have retained their clear writing style as well as the wealth of excellent problems and logical presentation of the theory. The accuracy of the theory, the problems and the artwork ensures that undergraduates will grasp the concepts essential for the remainder of their student and professional careers. The 3rd SI edition contains a new four-colour design, and the software that accompanies the text is completely new, containing interactive modules with animations of free-body diagrams, and quizzes to accompany every subject.

This book contains the most important formulas and more than 160 completely solved problems from Statics. It provides engineering students material to improve their skills and helps to gain experience in solving engineering problems. Particular emphasis is placed on finding the solution path and formulating the basic equations. Topics include: - Equilibrium - Center of Gravity, Center of Mass, Centroids - Support Reactions - Trusses - Beams, Frames, Arches - Cables - Work and Potential Energy - Static and Kinetic Friction - Moments of Inertia

Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing

Materials, Processes, and Systems

Engineers rely on Groover because of the book’s quantitative and engineering-oriented approach that provides more equations and numerical problem exercises. The fourth edition introduces more modern topics, including new materials, processes and systems. End of chapter problems are also thoroughly revised to make the material more relevant. Several figures have been enhanced to significantly improve the quality of artwork. All of these changes will help engineers better understand the topic and how to apply it in the field.

Introduction to Engineering Analysis

The goal of this text is to introduce a general problem-solving approach for the beginning engineering student. Thus, Introduction to Analysis focuses on how to solve (any) kind of engineering analytical problem in a logical and systematic way. The book helps to prepare the students for such analytically oriented courses as statics, strength of materials, electrical circuits, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, etc.

Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems, Second Edition

Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems: Implementation in MATLAB® and SimMechanics®, Second Edition combines the fundamentals of mechanism kinematics, synthesis, statics and dynamics with real-world applications, and offers step-by-step instruction on the kinematic, static, and dynamic analyses and synthesis of equation systems. Written for students with no knowledge of MATLAB and SimMechanics, the text provides understanding of static and dynamic mechanism analysis, and moves beyond conventional kinematic concepts—factoring in adaptive programming, 2D and 3D visualization, and simulation, and equips readers with the ability to analyze and design mechanical systems.
