About this book


One of a new series of first year undergraduate engineering texts, this book covers all of the structural mechanics required by most Civil and Mechanical Engineering courses at first year level. Its programmed structure makes it suitable for use as a self-paced learning text. For series details see Foundations of Engineering section. 'This is an excellent textbook which achieves its teaching objectives superbly well....It is so attractive in layout and helpful with its questions and commentaries that even a hardened lecturer in the subject might be tempted to work it through! Strongly recommended.' E. Lightfoot, Pembroke College, Oxford University.
