Statics and Strength of Materials 7th Edition, by Harold I. Morrow and Robert P. Kokernak presents logically organized, clear coverage of all main topics in statics and materials, including the most recent developments in materials expertise and manufacturing/development techniques.
A fundamental knowledge of algebra and trigonometry are mathematical skill, it requires, although several non-obligatory sections utilizing calculus are provided for instructors educating in ABET accredited programs. A new introductory section on catastrophic failures reveals students why these subjects are so essential, and 25 full-web page, actual-life utility sidebars reveal the relevance of theory.
To simplify understanding and promote scholar curiosity, the book is profusely illustrated. Authors cover statics and energy of materials at an elementary degree, not requiring calculus. However, for instructors who use Statics and Strength of Materials 7th Edition to show in accredited applications within the applied sciences, sections requiring calculus are included. Those sections relate to centroids and moments of inertia of aircraft areas and deflection of beams by integration. Marked with an asterisk, this material will be omitted with no loss of continuity.
The chapters on statics start with an assessment of basic mathematics. The graphical technique, together with trigonometric formulas and the part methods are employed to solve concurrent pressure problems. A dialogue of the resultant and equilibrium of nonconcurrent forces follows, with particular emphasis on the theorem of moments. Then the strength evaluation of constructions and machines and concurrent and non concurrent drive systems in space is presented.
The chapters on statics conclude with friction, centers of gravity, centroids, and moment of inertia of areas. The chapters on strength of materials begin with the examination of stress and pressure in axially loaded members. This is adopted by discussions of shear stresses and strains in torsion members, bending and deflection of beams, combined stress using Mohr’s circle, columns, and structural connections.
The text consists of greater than 900 issues at numerous levels of problem for the student. Each the U.S. customary system of items and the international system of models (SI) are launched and utilized equally within the problems and examples.
