The new edition of this popular student text has been improved and expanded by many new examples, homework problems, enhanced illustrations and clearer explanations of basic principles. It remains a unique, lower-priced textbook designed for engineering students who are not mechanical engineering majors. While it covers the standard syllabus, the book divides the course material into very short chapters or modules, which allows for multiple classroom and online instructional strategies geared to different student backgrounds. Each highly illustrated module provides a clear step-by-step explanation of basic concepts, requisite formulas and calculations, worked problems and exercises, as well as references. The book also provides a solid review resource for students preparing to pass the mechanics of materials section of the national Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.

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. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

This text provides undergraduate engineering students with a systematic treatment of both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. With a strong emphasis on basic concepts and techniques throughout, the text focuses on analytical understanding of the subject by the students. An abundance of worked-out examples, depicting realistic situations encountered in engineering design, are aimed to develop skills for analysis and design of components. To broaden the student’s capacity for adopting other forms of solving problems, a few typical problems are presented in C programming language at the end of each chapter. The book is primarily suitable for a one-semester course for B.E./B.Tech students and diploma-level students pursuing courses in civil engineering, mechanical engineering and its related branches of engineering profession such as production engineering, industrial engineering, automobile engineering and aeronautical engineering. The book can also be used to advantage by students of electrical engineering where an introductory course on mechanics of materials is prescribed. KEY FEATURES  Includes numerous clear and easy-to-follow examples to illustrate the application of theory to practical problems.  Provides numerous end-of-chapter problems for study and review.  Gives summary at the end of each chapter to allow students to recapitulate the topics.  Includes C programs with quite a few C graphics to encourage students to build up competencies in computer applications.

This book covers the essential topics for a second-level course in strength of materials or mechanics of materials, with an emphasis on techniques that are useful for mechanical design. Design typically involves an initial conceptual stage during which many options are considered. At this stage, quick approximate analytical methods are crucial in determining which of the initial proposals are feasible. The ideal would be to get within 30% with a few lines of calculation. The designer also needs to develop experience as to the kinds of features in the geometry or the loading that are most likely to lead to critical conditions. With this in mind, the author tries wherever possible to give a physical and even an intuitive interpretation to the problems under investigation. For example, students are encouraged to estimate the location of weak and strong bending axes and the resulting neutral axis of bending before performing calculations, and the author discusses ways of getting good accuracy with a simple one degree of freedom Rayleigh-Ritz approximation. Students are also encouraged to develop a feeling for structural deformation by performing simple experiments in their outside environment, such as estimating the radius to which an initially straight bar can be bent without producing permanent deformation, or convincing themselves of the dramatic difference between torsional and bending stiffness for a thin-walled open beam section by trying to bend and then twist a structural steel beam by hand-applied loads at one end. In choosing dimensions for mechanical components, designers will expect to be guided by criteria of minimum weight, which with elementary calculations, generally leads to a thin-walled structure as an optimal solution. This consideration motivates the emphasis on thin-walled structures, but also demands that students be introduced to the limits imposed by structural instability. Emphasis is also placed on the effect of manufacturing errors on such highly-designed structures - for example, the effect of load misalignment on a beam with a large ratio between principal stiffness and the large magnification of initial alignment or loading errors in a strut below, but not too far below the buckling load.

This book is the first to bridge the often disparate bodies of knowledge now known as applied mechanics and materials science. Using a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called "total structural design", this book seeks a solution in "total design space" Features include: * A generalized design template for solving structural design problems. * Every chapter first introduces mechanics concepts through deformation, equilibrium, and energy considerations. Then the constitutive nature of the chapter topic is presented, followed by a link between mechanics and materials concepts. Details of analysis and materials selection are subsequently discussed. * A concluding example design problem is provided in most chapters, so that students may get a sense of how mechanics and materials come together in the design of a real structure. * Exercises are provided that are germane to aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering applications, and include both deterministic and design-type problems. * Accompanying website contains a wealth of information complementary to this text, including a set of virtual labs. Separate site areas are available for the instructor and students. Combines theories of solid mechanics, materials science and structural design in one coherent text/reference Covers physical scales from the atomistic to continuum mechanics Offers a generalized structural design template
