Engineering Mechanics: Statics – M. Plesha, G. Gray, F. Costanzo – 1st Edition


Plesha, Gray, and Costanzo’s Mechanics: Statics & presents the fundamental concepts, clearly, in a modern context using applications and pedagogical devices that connect with today’s students.
The text features a five-part problem-solving methodology that is consistently used throughout all example problems. This methodology helps students lay out the steps necessary to correct problem-formulation and explains the steps needed to arrive at correct and realistic solutions. Once students have fully mastered the basic concepts, they are taught appropriate use of modern tools where applicable.

Further reinforcing the text’s modern emphasis, the authors have brought engineering considerations into selected where appropriate. This sensitizes students to the fact that do not have a single answer and many different routes lead to a correct solution.

The first new mainstream text in engineering in nearly twenty years, Plesha, Gray, and Costanzo’s Mechanics: Statics and will help your students learn this important material efficiently and effectively.
