A Proven Approach to Conceptual Understanding and Problem-solving Skills Engineering Mechanics: Statics & Dynamics excels in providing a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics. Engineering Mechanics empowers students to succeed by drawing upon Prof. Hibbeler’s everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn. This text is shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers in the teaching profession, as well as many of the author’s students.

The Fourteenth Edition includes new Preliminary Problems, which are intended to help students develop conceptual understanding and build problem-solving skills. The text features a large variety of problems from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, and having varying levels of difficulty.

Key Features
  • NEW! Preliminary Problems are designed to test students’ conceptual understanding of the theory and are placed throughout the text before the Fundamentals Problems. Preliminary Problems solutions require little or no calculation and are intended to help students develop a basic understanding of the concepts before they are applied numerically. All the solutions are given in the back of the text.
  • Fundamental Problems offer students simple applications of the concepts and provide the opportunity to develop their problem-solving skills before attempting to solve the standard problems that follow. These problem sets follow the Example problems and provide extended examples with partial solutions and answers in the back of the book.
  • Conceptual Problems are intended to engage the students in thinking through a real-life situation as depicted in a photo. These analysis and design problems appear throughout the text, usually at the end of each chapter, as a set of problems that involve conceptual situations related to the application of the mechanics principles contained in the chapter.
  • Procedures for Analysis provides students with a logical and orderly method for applying theory and building problem-solving skills. A general procedure for analyzing any mechanics problem is presented at the end of the first chapter and each procedure is customized to relate to specific types of problems covered throughout the book.
  • Examples follow the direction of the Procedure for Analysis, in order to illustrate its application. The many examples throughout show how to solve problems ranging in difficulty. They also illustrate the application of fundamental theory to practical engineering problems while reflecting the problem solving strategies discussed in associated Procedures for Analysis.
  • Expanded Important Points provides a review or summary of the most important concepts in a section and stresses the most significant points when applying the theory to solve problems.
  • Free-Body Diagrams are emphasized throughout the book. In particular, special sections and examples are devoted to show how to draw free-body diagrams. Homework problems have also been added to develop this practice.
  • General Analysis and Design Problems in the book depict realistic situations encountered in engineering practice. Some of these problems come from actual products used in industry. It is hoped that this realism will both stimulate the student’s interest in engineering mechanics and provide a means for developing the skill to reduce any such problem from its physical description to a model or symbolic representation to which the principles of mechanics may be applied.
  • Statics Practice Problem Workbook contains additional worked problems. The problems are partially solved and are designed to help guide students through difficult topics.
  • 30% new problems have been added to this edition and involve applications to many different fields of engineering.
  • Photo Realistic Art includes 3D figures rendered with photographic realism.
  • NEW! Photos. The relevance of knowing the subject matter is reflected by the applications depicted in many new or updated photos placed throughout the book. These photos generally are used to explain how the relevant principles apply to real-world situations and how materials behave under load. In some sections, photographs have been used to show how engineers must first make an idealized model for analysis, and then proceed to draw a free-body diagram of this model in order to apply the theory.
