Now in 4-color format with more illustrations than ever before, the Seventh 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.

These lecture notes cover numerous elements of configurational mechanics, including mathematical foundations, linear and nonlinear elasticity and continuum mechanics, coupled fields, fracture mechanics, as well as strength of materials.
A systematic presentation of theory, procedures, illustrative examples, and applications, Mechanics of Materials provides the basis for understanding structural mechanics in engineering systems such as buildings, bridges, vehicles, and machines. The book incorporates the fundamentals of the subject into analytical methods, modeling approaches, numerical methods, experimental procedures, numerical evaluation procedures, and design techniques. It introduces the fundamentals, and then moves on to more advanced concepts and applications. It discusses analytical methods using simple mathematics, examples and experimental techniques, and it includes a large number of worked examples and case studies that illustrate practical and real-world usage. In the beginning of each chapter, states and summarizes the objectives and approaches, and lists the main topics covered in the chapter Presents the key issues and formulas in a "Summary Sheet" at the end of each chapter Provides as appendices at the end of the book, useful reference data and advanced material that cannot be conveniently integrated into the main chapters Mechanics of Materials is a result of the author's experience in teaching an undergraduate course in mechanics of materials consisting of mechanical, manufacturing, materials, mining and mineral engineering students and in teaching other courses in statics, dynamics, modeling, vibration, instrumentation, testing, design, and control. This book is suitable for anyone with a basic engineering background. The practical considerations, design issues, and engineering techniques, and the snapshot-style presentation of advanced theory and concepts, makes this a useful reference for practicing professionals as well.
&Quot;The unifying treatment of structural design presented here should prove useful to any engineer involved in the design of structures. A crucial divide to be bridged is that between applied mechanics and materials science. The onset of specialization and the rapid rise of technology, however, have created separate disciplines concerned with the deformation of solid materials. Unfortunately, the result is in many cases that society loses out on having at their service efficient, high-performance material/structural systems.". "We follow in this text a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called total structural design. The idea is to seek a solution in "total design space."". "The material presented in this text is suitable for a first course that encompasses both the traditional mechanics of materials and properties of materials courses. The text is also appropriate for a second course in mechanics of materials or a follow-on course in design of structures, taken after the typical introductory mechanics and properties courses. This text can be adapted to several different curriculum formats, whether traditional or modern. Instructors using the text for a traditional course may find that the text in fact facilitates transforming their course over time to a more modern, integrated approach."--BOOK JACKET.
This text provides undergraduate engineering students with a systematic treatment of both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. With a strong emphasis on basic concepts and techniques throughout, the text focuses on analytical understanding of the subject by the students. An abundance of worked-out examples, depicting realistic situations encountered in engineering design, are aimed to develop skills for analysis and design of components. To broaden the student’s capacity for adopting other forms of solving problems, a few typical problems are presented in C programming language at the end of each chapter. The book is primarily suitable for a one-semester course for B.E./B.Tech students and diploma-level students pursuing courses in civil engineering, mechanical engineering and its related branches of engineering profession such as production engineering, industrial engineering, automobile engineering and aeronautical engineering. The book can also be used to advantage by students of electrical engineering where an introductory course on mechanics of materials is prescribed. KEY FEATURES Includes numerous clear and easy-to-follow examples to illustrate the application of theory to practical problems. Provides numerous end-of-chapter problems for study and review. Gives summary at the end of each chapter to allow students to recapitulate the topics. Includes C programs with quite a few C graphics to encourage students to build up competencies in computer applications.
The new edition of this popular student text has been improved and expanded by many new examples, homework problems, enhanced illustrations and clearer explanations of basic principles. It remains a unique, lower-priced textbook designed for engineering students who are not mechanical engineering majors. While it covers the standard syllabus, the book divides the course material into very short chapters or modules, which allows for multiple classroom and online instructional strategies geared to different student backgrounds. Each highly illustrated module provides a clear step-by-step explanation of basic concepts, requisite formulas and calculations, worked problems and exercises, as well as references. The book also provides a solid review resource for students preparing to pass the mechanics of materials section of the national Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.
MECHANICS OF MATERIALS BRIEF EDITION by Gere and Goodno presents thorough and in-depth coverage of the essential topics required for an introductory course in Mechanics of Materials. This user-friendly text gives complete discussions with an emphasis on need to know material with a minimization of nice to know content. Topics considered beyond the scope of a first course in the subject matter have been eliminated to better tailor the text to the introductory course. Continuing the tradition of hallmark clarity and accuracy found in all 7 full editions of Mechanics of Materials, 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.
