KEY BENEFFIT: Mechanics of Materials presents the foundations and applications of mechanics of materials by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics—especially through the use of free body diagrams. The book also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format in examples. Provides a problem-solving approach. Emphasizes visual analysis of topics in all examples. Includes motivating applications throughout the book. Ideal for readers wanting to learn more about mechanical, civil, aerospace, engineering mechanics, and/or general engineering.

A landmark of modern architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater is also a consummate application of mechanics of materials, combining imaginative structural design with innovative choices of materials. His use of reinforced concrete to extend the structure over the waterfall anticipated the many current applications of composite materials.About the Author:
ANTHONY BEDFORD is Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin.
