Introductory Applied Mechanics Set [Ed. 1.5]
This set contains Introductory Applied Mechanics, Volumes 1 & 2.
- Volume 1; Force & Motion:
This text includes a review of the algebra, trigonometry and vector skills required for a non-calculus treatment of static equilibrium, friction, linear and angular motion, and linear and rotational kinetics. Also included are chapters on centripetal force and motion, and work, energy and power. All of the concepts are supported by solved examples, and over 100 solved problems at the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st Class Power Engineering levels.
- Volume 2; Machines, Stress & Fluids:
A continuation of Volume I, this text introduces the student to the analysis of simple machines, momentum, reciprocating and spring motion, simple harmonic motion, stress and strain, shear force and bending moment in beams, stress in beams, torsion in shafts, and fluid pressure, flow and power. As in Volume I, the concepts are illustrated with solved examples and solved problems at the 3rd, 2nd and 1st Class Power Engineering Levels.
