This text covers the topics of statics and strength of materials at a level that is appropriate for industrial technology and engineering technology programs, as well as for university-level courses for non-engineering majors such as architecture. The book uses U.S. Customary and SI units equally in worked examples and practice problems. Sections requiring calculus are included for professors who teach in accredited programs in the technologies; these sections are marked with asterisks and may be omitted, depending on the level of coverage required, without a loss of continuity in the text. Chapters I through 8 cover the topic of statics and include a review of unit conversions, trigonometry, and simultaneous equations. Chapters 9 through 18 are devoted to the study of strength of materials.
