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 problemsolving 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.

About the AuthorBarry John Goodno is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He was an Evans Scholar and received a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin in 1970. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Structural Engineering from Stanford University in 1971 and 1975, respectively. He holds a professional engineering license (PE) in Georgia, is a Fellow of ASCE and an Inaugural Fellow of SEI, and has held numerous leadership positions within ASCE. Dr. Goodno is a member of the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) of ASCE and is a past president of the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Board of Governors. James M. Gere (19252008) earned his undergraduate and master's degree in Civil Engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1949 and 1951, respectively. He worked as an instructor and later as a Research Associate for Rensselaer. He was awarded one of the first NSF Fellowships, and chose to study at Stanford. He received his Ph.D. in 1954 and was offered a faculty position in Civil Engineering, beginning a 34year career of engaging his students in challenging topics in mechanics, and structural and earthquake engineering. He authored nine texts on various engineering subjects starting in 1972 with Mechanics of Materials. He served as Department Chair and Associate Dean of Engineering and in 1974 cofounded the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford. In 1980, Jim Gere also became the founding head of the Stanford Committee on Earthquake Preparedness. That same year, he was invited as one of the first foreigners to study the earthquakedevastated city of Tangshan, China. Jim retired from Stanford in 1988 but continued to be an active and most valuable member of the Stanford community. Reviews1. TENSION, COMPRESSION, AND SHEAR. Introduction to Mechanics of Material.
