- Examples: Numerous examples illustrate the theoretical concepts and show how those concepts may be used in practical situations. In some cases, photographs have been added showing actual engineering structures or components to reinforce the tie between theory and application.
- Both the International System of Units (SI) and the U.S. Customary System (USCS) are used in the examples and problems allowing students to gain proficiency using both.
The Eighth Edition of MECHANICS OF MATERIALS continues its tradition as one of the leading texts on the market. With its hallmark clarity and accuracy, this text develops student understanding along with analytical and problem-solving skills. The main topics include analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, bending, and more. The book includes more material than can be taught in a single course giving instructors the opportunity to select the topics they wish to cover while leaving any remaining material as a valuable student reference.
