This text provides a clear, comprehensive presentation of both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. The text examines the physical behaviour of materials under load, then proceeds to model this behaviour to development theory. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined units that allow instructors great flexibility in course emphasis. A respected instructor and prolific author, R.C. Hibbeler combines a fluid writing style, cohesive organization, and exercises, examples, and free body diagrams to help prepare tomorrow's engineers. The book contains over 1,700 homework problems depicting realistic situations students are likely to encounter as engineers. These illustrated problems are designed to stimulate student interest and enable them to reduce problems from a physical description to a model or symbolic representation to which the theoretical principles may be applied. The problems balance FPS and SI units and are arranged in an increasing order of difficulty so students can evaluate their understanding of the material.
