Learn MATLAB to help you understand mechanics
MATLAB is a powerful tool for mathematical modeling, and is becoming essential to many engineering fields. Solving Statics Problems in MATLAB is designed to both introduce students to MATLAB, and provide them with a useful tool for understanding static mechanics. The book begins with MATLAB basics, including scripts, functions, graphics, calculations, and equations, then moves into physics with targeted guidance on solving force systems, equilibriums, structures, friction, and more. The problems presented are taken from Engineering Mechanics Statics, 6th Edition, but the clear guidance and comprehensive instruction can be applied to any course.
