Description:

Nationally regarded authors Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas bring a depth of experience that can't be surpassed in this third edition of Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics. They have refined their solid coverage of the material without overloading it with extraneous detail and have revised the now 2-color text to be even more concise and appropriate to todays engineering student. The text discusses the application of the fundamentals of Newtonian dynamics and applies them to real-world engineering problems. An accompanying Study Guide is also available for this text.

Professor Andrew Pytel received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1957, his M.S. in Engineering Mechanics in 1959, and his Ph.D in Engineering Mechanics in 1963; all from The Pennsylvania State University. In addition to his career at Penn State University, Professor Pytel was an Assistant Professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the Dept of Mechanical Engineering (1962-65), an Assistant Professor at Northeastern University in Boston (1965-67). He became a full Professor at The Penn State University in 1984 and a Professor Emeritus in 1995. Throughout his career Professor Pytel has taught many different courses and has been the recipient of many honors and awards. He has participated extensively with the American Society for Engineering Education and was named a Fellow of the ASEE in 2008.

Jaan Kiusalaas, Professor Emeritus, Engineering Science and Mechanics, The Pennsylvania State University. Professor Kiusalaas received his Honors BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Adelaide, Australia, his M.S. in Civil Engineering and his Ph D. in Engineering Mechanics, both from Northwestern University. He has been a Professor at The Pennsylvania State University since 1963. He is also a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Centre. Professor Kiusalaas' teaching experience includes such topics as Numerical Methods (including finite element and boundary element methods), and Engineering Mechanics ranging from introductory courses (statics & dynamics) to graduate level courses.
