About this Textbook

The ultimate companion in the classical horror discipline of engineering science! Contents of the book are the basics of mechanics as treated in engineering and physical sciences: Statics, Elastostatics, Kinematics & Kinetics in unconventional, humorous presentation with many cartoons, funny explanations and a chapter containing several exercises with detailed solutions.

About the authors

Dr. Nikolaus Hinrichs and Dr. Oliver Romberg received their Ph.D.'s in mechanical engineering from the University of Hannover. Besides research activities in this special area they were teaching Mechanics over a period of more than 10 years. They are quite aware of the problems when Mechanics and Students meet. Today Dr. Hinrichs is European Patent and Trademark Attorney, Göttingen. Dr. Romberg works as project manager in space technology, Bremen.

Reviews

"Auf Englisch, mit viel Witz und so mancher auflockernder Zeichnung beweisen die Autoren, dass die Grundlagen der Statik, Elastostatik und Kinetik ganz und gar nicht so trocken sind, wie wir immer dachten."
