Preface.- 1. Fundamental Principles of Mechanics.- 2. Statics.- 3. Geometry of Masses.- 4. Kinematics of a Particle and Introduction to Kinematics of Rigid Bodies.- 5. Kinematics of a Rigid Body and Composite Motion of a Point.- 6. Kinematics of a Deformable Body.
This is the first volume of three, devoted to Mechanics. This book contains classical mechanics problems including kinematics and statics. It is recommended as a supplementary textbook for undergraduate and graduate students from mechanical and civil engineering, as well as for physical scientists and engineers. It contains a basic introduction to classical mechanics, including fundamental principles, statics, and the geometry of masses, as well as thorough discussion on kinematics.
Provides the reader with a step-by-step introduction to the material, enabling them to learn quickly
Makes a bridge between theoretical (physics) and applied (engineering) classical mechanics
Contains numerous examples supported by color figures, illustrating various theoretical concepts¿
