In the 6th edition of Mechanics of Materials, author team Riley, Sturges, and Morris continue to provide students with the latest information in the field, as well as realistic and motivating problems. This updated revision of Mechanics of Materials (formerly Higdon, Olsen and Stiles) features thorough treatment of stress, strain, and the stress-strain relationships. These topics are covered before the customary treatments of axial loading, torsion, flexure, and buckling, allowing for earlier introduction of more realistic problems, such as those associated with combined loadings.

Riley, Sturges, and Morris continue to write in a student-friendly style that includes new illustrations throughout each chapter. The text stresses the use of fundamental principles and the concepts of mechanics to solve all problems. As a result, students must apply the information presented in each chapter to answer realistic problems instead of simply using formulas. This problem solving method motivates students to learn the material because they see how it is used in the real world.

From the Back Cover:

A CLEAR AND THOROUGH GUIDE, WITH A STRONG PROBLEM-SOLVING METHODOLOGY

In this sixth edition of Mechanics of Materials, Riley, Sturges, and Morris continue to provide a clear and thorough treatment of stress, strain, and stress-strain relationships, as well as axial loading, torsion, flexure, and buckling. Throughout the text, they emphasize fundamental principles, with numerous applications to demonstrate and develop logical, orderly methods of analysis.

The authors equip students with an effective problem-solving methodology. They encourage students to draw free body diagrams whenever they write an equation of equilibrium, reduce problems to a series of simpler component problems, and present results in a clear manner.

Now revised, this sixth edition features many new examples and homework problems, a consistent sign convention for internal forces, expanded and improved discussion of the stress element, and new sections on combined loading.
