Meriam L. This series of textbooks was begun in by the late Dr. James L. At that time, the books represented a revolutionary transformation in undergraduate mechanics education. They became the definitive textbooks for the decades that followed as well as models for other engineering mechanics texts that have subsequently appeared. Published under slightly different titles prior to the First Editions, this textbook series has always been characterized by logical organization, clear and rigorous presentation of the theory, instructive sample problems, and a rich collection of real-life problems, all with a high standard of illustration.

In addition to the U. These texts collectively represent an international standard for undergraduate texts in mechanics. The innovations and contributions of Dr.

Meriam — to the field of engineering mechanics cannot be overstated. He was one of the premier engineering educators of the second half of the twentieth century.

Meriam earned his B. During the Second World War he served in the U. Coast Guard. Professor Meriam always placed great emphasis on teaching, and this trait was recognized by his students wherever he taught. At Berkeley in , he was the first recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Award of Tau Beta Pi, given primarily for excellence in teaching. Glenn Kraige, coauthor of the Engineering Mechanics series since the early s, has also made significant contributions to mechanics education.

Kraige earned his B. Professor Kraige was invited by Professor Meriam to team with him and thereby ensure that the Meriam legacy of textbook authorship excellence was carried forward to future generations.

For the past three decades, this highly successful team of authors has made an enormous and global impact on the education of several generations of engineers. In addition to his widely recognized research and publications in the field of spacecraft dynamics, Professor Kraige has devoted his attention to the teaching of mechanics at both introductory and advanced levels.

His outstanding teaching has been widely recognized and has earned him teaching awards at the departmental, college, university, state, regional, and national levels. These include the Francis J. During —, he held the W. Hendricks and Don H. In his teaching, Professor Kraige stresses the development of analytical capabilities along with the strengthening of physical insight and engineering judgment.

The Seventh Edition of Engineering Mechanics continues the same high standards set by previous editions and adds new features of help and interest to students. It contains a vast collection of interesting and instructive problems. Following the pattern of the previous editions, this textbook stresses the application of theory to actual engineering situations, and at this important task it remains the best.
