Addison-Wesley is proud to announce the imminent publication of Anthony Bedford and Wallace Fowler’s Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Second Edition. The revised textbook will be published in July 1998 and will be available in time for Fall ’98 classes. Users of the first edition praised its organization, the clarity of writing, the quality of the art program, its many realistic applications. Bedford/Fowler has quickly earned a place in Engineering schools across the country because it teaches engineering mechanics the way a good instructor would.
Problem Solving Uses a “Strategy-Solution-Discussion” problem-solving methodology that explains how to approach problems, solve them, and critically judge the results
Visualization Stresses the importance of visual analysis, especially the use of free-body diagrams Develops figures gradually and employs “ghosting” techniques to clarify and emphasize concepts– emulating the way an instructor teaches
Applications Places engineering mechanics within the context of engineering practice by including applications from many fields of engineering Introduces design principles with the “Application to Engineering” feature using concepts developed in preceding sections of the chapter
About the Author
Wallace Fowler is Paul D. and Betty Robertson Meek Professor of Engineering in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Fowler received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Texas at Austin, and has been on the faculty since 1966. During 1976 he was on the staff of the United States Air Force Test Pilot School, Edwards Air Force Base, California, and in 1981-82 he was a visiting professor at the United States Air Force Academy. Since 1991 he has been Associate Director of the Texas Space Grant Consortium.Dr. Fowler’s areas of teaching and research are dynamics, orbital mechanics, and spacecraft mission design. He is author or coauthor of many technical papers on trajectory optimization and attitude dynamics, and has also published many papers on the theory and practice of engineering teaching. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Chancellor’s Council Outstanding Teaching Award, the General Dynamics Teaching Excellence Award, the Halliburton Education Foundation Award of Excellence, and the AIAA-ASEE Distinguished Aerospace Educator Award.He is a licensed professional engineer, a member of many technical societies, and a fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the American Society for Engineering Education.
Anthony Bedford is Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin. He received his B.S. degree at the University of Texas at Austin, his M.S. degree at the California Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. degree at Rice University in 1967. He has industrial experience at Douglas Aircraft Company and at TRW, where he did structural dynamics and trajectory analyses for the Apollo program. He has been on the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin since 1968.Dr. Bedford’s main professional activity has been education and research in engineering mechanics. He has been principal investigator on grants from the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research, and from 1973 until 1983 was a consultant to Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico. His other books include Hamilton’s Principle in Continuum Mechanics, Introduction to Elastic Wave Propagation (with D.S. Drumheller), and Mechanics of Materials (with K.M. Liechti).
