The topics discussed include the analysis and design of structural members subjected to axial loads, torsion and bending, as well as such fundamental concepts as stress, strain, elastic and inelastic behaviour and strain energy. Other topics of general interest are the transformations of stress and strain, stress concentrations, deflections of beams, behaviour of columns and energy methods. More specialized subjects are thermal and prestrain effects, pressure vessels, nonprismatic members, discontinuity functions, shear centre and inelastic bending. The book is designed in such a way that teachers have the opportunity to select the topics that they feel are the most fundamental and relevant. Each section includes a number of problems for homework assignments and discussions.Read Less
New. 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 problem-solving 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.
