Written by an award-winning teacher and internationally-known structural dynamicist, this invaluable book gives readers a thorough grounding in all the basics-equilibrium, material behavior, and the geometry of deformation. It also provides a systematic problem-solving methodology that provides a practical system for planning and analyzing solutions.

The revision of this successful mechanics of materials text continues to feature a strong emphasis on the basics - equilibrium, force-temperature-deformation behavior of materials and geometry of deformationFrom the Back Cover:
FOCUS ON THE BASICS... AND BRING CRITICAL SKILLS INTO FOCUS!
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.
