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 primary objective in the first course in mechanics is to help develop a college student’s ability first to analyze problems in a logical and simple manner and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A very strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems. This latest edition of Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics 12th edition (PDF) will help instructors achieve these goals. Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, this 12th edition provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your mechanic students. The twelfth edition has many new case studies and enhancements in the textbook and in Connect. The hallmark of the Beer-Johnston series has been the problem sets. This edition is not different. Over 650 of the homework problems in the textbook are revised or new. One of the characteristics of the approach used in this ebook is that the mechanics of particles is clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of the more difficult concepts. Additionally, Connect has over 100 Free-Body Diagram Tool Problems and Process-Oriented Problems.

McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect (sold separately) is also available. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers college students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the instructors to assign homework tests and quizzes easily and automatically grades and records the scores of all the student’s work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers and may also have a “multi-step solution” which helps move the math students’ learning along if they experience difficulty.
