This textbook provides students with a foundation in the general procedures and principles of the mechanical design process. It introduces students to solving force systems, selecting components and determining resultants in equilibrium. Strength failures of various materials will also be presented. In addition, the author has includes information about how to -- analyze and solve problems involving force systems, components, resultants and equilibrium; determine center of gravity and centroids of members and objects; identify moment of inertia of objects; analyze simple structures under linear stress and strain; investigate the effects of torsion on shafts and springs; find the load, stress and deflection on beams; and analyze structures subjected to combined loading.This textbook provides students with a foundation in the general procedures and principles of the mechanical design process.
