Engineering mechanics is one of the fundamental branches of science that is important in the education of professional engineers of any major. Most of the basic engineering courses, such as mechanics of materials, fluid and gas mechanics, machine design, mechatronics, acoustics, vibrations, etc. are based on engineering mechanics courses. In order to absorb the materials of engineering mechanics, it is not enough to consume just theoretical laws and theorems - a student also must develop an ability to solve practical problems. Therefore, it is necessary to solve many problems independently. This book is a part of a four-book series designed to supplement the engineering mechanics courses. This series instructs and applies the principles required to solve practical engineering problems in the following branches of mechanics: statics, kinematics, dynamics, and advanced kinetics. Each book contains between 6 and 8 topics on its specific branch and each topic features 30 problems to be assigned as homework, tests, and/or midterm/final exams with the consent of the instructor. A solution of one similar sample problem from each topic is provided.

This first book contains seven topics of statics, the branch of mechanics concerned with the analysis of forces acting on construction systems without an acceleration (a state of the static equilibrium). The book targets the undergraduate students of the sophomore/junior level majoring in science and engineering. The author welcomes all feedback/comments from the reader.

Sayavur I. Bakhtiyarov, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology
Dr. Sayavur I. Bakhtiyarov is a Professor at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (Socorro, NM, USA) and a Fulbright Fellow. Dr. Bakhtiyarov obtained his Ph.D. from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1978, and in 1992 a D.Sc. from the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences. His areas of expertise are: multiphase flows, nanotechnology, nonlinear fluid mechanics, tribology, rheology, and self-healing composites. Dr. Bakhtiyarov taught engineering courses over four decades in several countries (Azerbaijan, Russia, China, UK, Turkey, U.S.). Dr. Bakhtiyarov authored 350+ scientific publications in refereed scholarly journals, books, international conferences and symposia proceedings, and 14 patents. Dr. Bakhtiyarov was elected as a foreign member of Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and International Ecoenergy Academy. He served as a Program director of US DOE and NASA research projects, INSRP US DOD coordinator for NASA's Mars Science Lab mission. Dr. Bakhtiyarov is a lead organizer of the ASME annual symposia and forums, Editor in Chief of two international journals, Mechanics and Solids (IJM&S) and Manufacturing Science and Technology (IJMS&T), and an Editorial Board Member of i-manager's Journal on Engineering and Technology (IJET), Mathematics Applied in Science and Technology (MAST), International Journal of Applied Engineering Research (IJAER), International Journal of Dynamics of Fluids (IJDF), and Far-East Journal of Mathematics (FEJM).
