About this book

Introduction

As well as updating this popular text for the second edition, the authors have included some additional discussion and worked examples to solve the difficulties that students sometimes experience in bridging the gap between 'A' levels and typical engineering first degree work. The book is divided into 2 parts. Part I covers the basic principles of Statics and Dynamics, from the concept of a particle to a study of connected rigid bodies. Part II shows how the concepts of Part I may be developed for a wide range of applications. Each chapter ends with a brief summary of the key points it has covered.
