This engineering textbook introduces the principles of mechanics, beginning with the mechanical properties of materials and the effects of axial load, torsion, bending, and transverse shear. It then describes methods for transforming states of stress and strain, determining the load on a column, and computing deflections of beams and shafts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR


Provides a clear presentation of theory and application of fundamental principles of mechanics of materials. Understanding is based on an explanation of the physical behavior of materials under load and modeling of this behavior to develop theory. Emphasis is placed on the importance of satisfying equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. This fourth edition includes key points, new b&w photos, and new problems of different levels, some which require solution by computer. Coverage extends from strain and axial load, through buckling of columns and energy methods. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
