From the Back Cover:


By emphasizing the three key concepts of mechanics of solids (Equilibrium, Force-Temperature-Deformation Behavior of Materials, and Geometry of Deformation), this new Second Edition helps readers improve their problem-solving skills. They'll discover how these fundamental concepts underlie all of the applications presented, and they'll learn how to identify the equations needed to solve various problems. And with the addition of detailed example problems integrated throughout the chapters, readers learn how to organize their solutions and think like practicing engineers.

The MDSolids software included with the text also adds to the development of readers' skills. This CD-ROM helps them confirm solutions obtained by hand calculation, view sketches and graphs that illustrate how members deform and how stresses are distributed, and search through extensive help files to find solution procedures and tips. An additional 90 examples problems are provided on the software that are similar to the ones presented in the book.

Key Features of the Second Edition

  • A Strong emphasis is placed on the basics to help readers gain a better understanding of the material and enhance their problem-solving skills.
  • A four-step problem-solving procedure is introduced that includes Plan the Solution and Review the Solution se4ctions. This procedure helps readers determine how to solve a problem and check the solution for accuracy.
  • Thirty computer exercises are included in the text. Twenty of these exercises encourage readers to use application software (FORTRAN,C, spreadsheet program, MathCAD, MATLAB and more) to solve problems. Ten of the exercises are specifically designed for MDSolids solutions. Readers will gain an appreciation of this software as they solve complex problems that involve several stages.
