Brian Self

Brian Self

Dr. Brian Self got his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech and earned his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Utah. He worked in the Air Force Research Laboratories before teaching at the U.S. Air Force Academy for 7 years. Dr. Self has taught in the Mechanical Engineering Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, since 2006. He has been active in the American Society of Engineering Education, serving on its Board from 2008-2010. His professional interests include aviation physiology, educational research, and biomechanics.

David F. Mazurek

David F. Mazurek

Dr. David F. Mazurek holds a B.S. in ocean engineering and an M.S. in civil engineering from the Florida Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Connecticut. Employed by the General Dynamics Corporation Electric Boat Division for 5+ years, he provided submarine construction support and conducted engineering design and analysis associated with pressure hull and other structures.

Professor Mazurek then taught for 1 year at Lafayette College prior to joining the civil engineering faculty at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, where he has been since 1990. Dr. David is currently a member of the American Railway Engineering & Maintenance-of-way Association Committee 15, and the American Society of Civil Engineers Committee on Blast, Shock, and Vibratory Effects. He has also worked with the Federal Railroad Administration on their bridge-inspection training program. David is a licensed professional engineer in Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

E. Russell Johnston

E. Russell Johnston

Dr. E. Russell Johnston, a native of Philadelphia, holds a B.S. in civil engineering from the University of Delaware and a Ph.D. in structural engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He taught for twenty-six years at the University of Connecticut, where he was Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department and taught for Lehigh University and Worchester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).

Russ was honoured by the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1991 with the Outstanding Civil Engineer Award.

Ferdinand Beer

Ferdinand Beer

Dr. Ferdinand Pierre Beer (1915–2003) was a university professor and a French mechanical engineer. He spent most of his career as a member of the faculty at Lehigh University (USA), where he served as the chairman of the mechanics and mechanical engineering departments. His most significant contribution was the co-authorship of several textbooks in the field of mathematics and mechanics, which have been widely utilized and cited in engineering education.

Phillip Cornwell

A key objective in the first course in mechanics is to help build a student’s ability first to evaluate problems in a simple and logical manner and then to implement basic principles to their solutions. A strong conceptual understanding of these fundamental mechanics principles is important for successfully solving mechanics problems. Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics and Dynamics, 12th Edition, (PDF) will assist instructors to achieve these goals. Continuing in the essence of its successful prior editions this edition provides conceptually accurate and comprehensive coverage together with an important refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your students. The 12th edition has included one case study every chapter and enhancements throughout the textbook and in Connect. The trademark of the Beer-Johnston series has been the problem sets. This updated edition is no different. More than 650 of the homework problems in the text are new or revised. One of the features of the approach used in this ebook is that the mechanics of particles is evidently separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to study simple practical applications at an early stage and to delay the introduction of the more difficult concepts.

Moreover, Connect has more than 100 Free-Body Diagram Tool Problems and Process-Oriented Problems.McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect is also available. Connect is the only integrated learning system that enables students to constantly adapting to deliver accurately what they need when they need it, how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect enables the professor to assign homework quizzes and tests easily and automatically grades and records the marks of the student’s work. Problems are randomized to avoid sharing of answers and may also have a “multi-step solution” which assists move the college students’ learning along if they experience trouble.
