Mechanics of Materials provides an in-depth yet accessible introduction to the behavior of solid materials under various stresses and strains. Emphasizing the three key concepts of deformable-body mechanics--equilibrium, material behavior, and geometry of deformation--this popular textbook covers the fundamental concepts of the subject while helping students strengthen their problem-solving skills. Throughout the text, students are taught to apply an effective four-step methodology to solve numerous example problems and understand the underlying principles of each application. Focusing primarily on the behavior of solids under static-loading conditions, the text thoroughly prepares students for subsequent courses in solids and structures involving more complex engineering analyses and Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE). The text provides ample, fully solved practice problems, real-world engineering examples, the equations that correspond to each concept, chapter summaries, procedure lists, illustrations, flow charts, diagrams, and more. This International adaptation has been thoroughly updated to use SI units. In addition to the new and updated materials, this updated edition includes new Python computer code examples, problems, and homework assignments that require only basic programming knowledge.
