More than 4 weeks availability


For courses that focus specifically on strength of materials. This practical introduction includes all of the coverage of strength topics contained in these authors' larger text, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Second Edition. Comprehensive coverage is firmly grounded in recent trends in the field, and introduces the most current standards for AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design. Within each section, and within each chapter, a "building block" approach is used that helps students construct an ample foundation for further technology studies. The text's focus is squarely on fundamental principles and their applications to engineering technology. All material is presented at a mathematics level which does not require the use of calculus.
