Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics 14th Edition in SI Units
For Dynamics Courses. A Proven Approach to Conceptual Understanding and Problem-solving Skills Engineering Mechanics: 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. MasteringEngineering is not included. Students, if MasteringEngineering is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringEngineering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MasteringEngineering is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

Serving as both a text and reference manual, Engineering Vibration, 4e, connects traditional design-oriented topics, the introduction of modal analysis, and the use of MATLAB, Mathcad, or Mathematica. The author provides an unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.
Teaching and Learning Experience
To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will:
- Apply Theory and/or Research: An unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.
- Prepare Students for their Career: Integrated computational software packages provide students with skills required by industry.
Engineering education is currently on the verge of a major transformation. However, while the need has been much discussed and several proposals for change have been put forward, relatively little focus has been put on actual implementation of the proposed changes. This book examines a program that has a long history of experimentation in engineering education. Written by experts on the subject, it describes specific topics with each chapter focusing on a specific innovation that has been carried out and explaining the educational pedagogy the learning benefit, as well as the transferability of the approach.

For undergraduate Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering departments. Containing Hibbeler’s hallmark student-oriented features, this text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other text further contribute to students’ ability to master the material. This edition can be packaged with MasteringEngineering, an innovative online program created to emulate the instructor’s office-hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Mechanics of Materials with self-paced individualized coaching. Teaching and Learning Experience To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will provide: * Individualized Coaching: Available with MasteringEngineering, an online program that emulates the instructor’s office-hour environment using self-paced individualized coaching. * Problem Solving: A large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. * Visualization: This text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. * Review and Student Support: A thorough end of chapter review provides students with a concise tool for reviewing chapter contents. * Accuracy: The accuracy of the text and problem solutions has been thoroughly checked by four other parties.
For courses in Machine Design or anyone interested in understanding the theory behind Machine Design. An integrated, case-based approach to Machine Design Machine Design, 5e presents the subject matter in an up-to-date and thorough manner with a strong design emphasis. This book emphasizes failure theory and analysis as well as the synthesis and design aspects of machine elements. The book points out the commonality of the analytical approaches needed to design a wide variety of elements and emphasizes the use of computer-aided engineering as an approach to the design and analysis of these classes of problems.
About the Author
Robert L. Norton earned undergraduate degrees in both mechanical engineering and industrial technology at Northeastern University and an MS in engineering design at Tufts University. He is a registered professional engineer in Massachusetts. He has extensive industrial experience in engineering design and manufacturing and many years’ experience teaching mechanical engineering, engineering design, computer science, and related subjects at Northeastern University, Tufts University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute. At Polaroid Corporation for 10 years, he designed cameras, related mechanisms, and high-speed automated machinery. He spent three years at Jet Spray Cooler Inc., designing food-handling machinery and products. For five years he helped develop artificial-heart and noninvasive assisted-circulation (counterpulsation) devices at the Tufts New England Medical Center and Boston City Hospital. Since leaving industry to join academia, he has continued as an independent consultant on engineering projects ranging from disposable medical products to high-speed production machinery. He holds 13 U.S. patents. Norton has been on the faculty of Worcester Polytechnic Institute since 1981 and is currently the Milton P. Higgins II Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Russell P. Searle Distinguished Instructor, Head of the Design Group in that department, and the Director of the Gillette Project Center at WPI. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical engineering with emphasis on design, kinematics, vibrations, and dynamics of machinery. He is the author of numerous technical papers and journal articles covering kinematics, dynamics of machinery, cam design and manufacturing, computers in education, and engineering education and of the texts Design of Machinery, Machine Design: An Integrated Approach and the Cam Design and Manufacturing Handbook. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers. But, since his main interest is in teaching, he is most proud of the fact that, in 2007, he was chosen as U. S. Professor of the Year for the State of Massachusetts by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, who jointly present the only national awards for teaching excellence given in the United States of America.
