    The objective of the study of mechanics of materials is to provide the

    student with an understanding of the relationship between external

    forces applied to an engineering structure and the resulting behavior

    of the parts of that structure. Mechanics provides the foundation for

    engineering design. The basic principles of mechanics are relatively

    simple and straight forward. This book applies those principles to a

    wide variety of problems having varying levels of complexity so that

    they may be analyzed in a simple, logical manner.

    Salient Features

    The emphasis of this book has been toward making the subject
    matter logical and easy to learn for the beginning student.

    The derivations and analyses maintain the usual degree of rigor for standard textbooks in mechanics of materials.

    Importance is placed on comprehension of behavior and the application of principles and techniques to problem solution.

    The breaking down of a problem into relatively simple elements, combined with a comparatively lengthy description of physical behavior and details of problem-solving techniques, has been
