About this book

This is the first volume of three, devoted to Mechanics. This book contains classical mechanics problems including kinematics and statics. It is recommended as a supplementary textbook for undergraduate and graduate students from mechanical and civil engineering, as well as for physical scientists and engineers. It contains a basic introduction to classical mechanics, including fundamental principles, statics, and the geometry of masses, as well as thorough discussion on kinematics.

About the authors

Jan Awrejcewicz is the 2011 winner of the Humboldt Prize. This award is granted from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany. The award is based on a reasearcher's entire achievements to date, whose fundamental discoveries, new theories or insights have had significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future. Prof. Awrejcewicz is also the main author of “Nonsmooth Dynamics of Contacting Thermoelastic Bodies”, © 2009, Springer (AMMA v. 16), 978-0-387-09562-0. He is also the sole editor of “Modeling, Simulation and Control of Nonlinear Engineering Dynamical Systems”, © 2009 Springer, 978-1-4020-8777-6.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book presents classical mechanics including kinematics and statics, and can be recommended as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and civil engineering and applied physics. … This excellent book unifies different approaches to the subject in the English, Russian, Polish and German literature.” (Vasile Marinca, zbMATH, Vol. 1268, 2013)
