Product Details

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Offers a concise yet thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing users' problem-solving skills. Features "Photorealistc" figures (approximately 200) that have been rendered in often 3D photo quality detail to appeal to visual learners. Features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. A thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and applications includes some of these topics: Force Vectors; Equilibrium of a Particle; Force System Resultants; Equilibrium of a Rigid Body; Structural Analysis; Internal Forces; Friction; Center of Gravity and Centroid; Moments of Inertia; and Virtual Work. For professionals in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics careers

Rating of the 1 st edition book and the author Nov. 14 2006
By G. CALICO - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My discussion here is a rating of the 1st edition and the author, Professor R.C. Hibbeler. The first edition is the one I used in my course of study while in college.

Granted the book does not offer a lot of complicated examples, only relatively easy ones. But there is a reason. The author wants the student to develop his/her own skills in problem solving. He does explain the material in enough detail to accomplish this. The reasons for not supplying a solutions manual should be obvious.

This book does a great job of supplying a very large and diverse collection of problem. The illustrations are very helpful with the problem solving exercise. As best I can recall, answers are provided to all even numbered problems.

As a text book and learning tool, the author should (and does) assume that the reader is a aspiring engineering student with intension on learning the most from the subject.

As I said earlier, its strengths are the number of problems presented in the text and the fact that the answers to most all of the problems are in the back of the book.

The book covers all the basic subjects required for a future understanding of Mechanics of Materials, usually presented later on in your continuing engineering studies. I do recommend it as a text book for a basic entry level engineering statics course, and it is great for the beginning engineering student for first year engineering students. It is also a great tool for preparation and to improve your understanding of other classes such as calculus, physics, dynamics.

As for the author, he is top notch. You can be assured this professor knows his subject. Just look at the various other books written by him: Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Structural Analysis. But this does not always make a good teacher. However, this professor is a great teacher. For no other reason, simply because he was my instructor at the University Of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University Of Louisiana At Lafayette)

This book helps introduce the basic principles of Statics while integrating basic material from Calculus. Great book very helpful and easy to learn.
Engineering Mechanics - Statics (11th Edition) Hardcover from May 4, 2006 by Russell C. Hibbeler April 7 2015
By CDP and his Amazon Habit of purchases! ! - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a standard for college courses in Engineering Statics and the earlier edition is the book I used in my studies in the early 70's. If there is a better text for introduction into the physics of engineering science, I am not familiar with it and I have several other texts on this subject. Russell C. Hibbeler has for years presented a study of this subject, that gives students a guide to learn the entire realm of Statics and the forces of energy on stationary objects and a lead in to the study of Dynamics. I recommend it to college age students who will need Engineering Mechanics as Statics for credit and knowledge gain for future instruction.
Variations found in the same edition, but a required text, Feb. 21 2010

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's a typical statics books (no dynamics)!

It has color pictures with fair illustrations, but not great.

The most noteworthy thing about this book, which is required for a class I have, is that not all the problems are the same from book to book with same author and edition. It appears there are two versions of the same edition. The professor will start to work a problem, and sometimes half the class has it in their book, but the rest of the class has a different problem. The teacher acknowledges an issue exists. This is not due to differences in an international version.

This book is the best statics book i have used. All of Hibbelers books are very good. Good description with good illustrations and example problems.
