A Foundation Course in Statics and Dynamics is the ideal text for anyone encountering engineering mechanics for the first time or who needs reinforcement of the basic principles. From the basics of static mechanics and frameworks, through to kinetics, friction and kinematics, it provides a largely non-mathematical introduction for students on foundation, conversion or undergraduate degree courses in engineering and technology. The book aims to teach the subject in the most accessible and enjoyable way by avoiding the use of unnecessary mathematics. It uses a consistent technical level of writing to create an accessible, introductory text and includes examples taken from both civil and mechanical engineering to illustrate the theory and develop understanding.
