Mechanics of Materials – Paul S. Steif – 1st Edition


Mechanics of Materials helps students gain physical and intuitive understanding of the ideas underlying the mechanics of materials; grasp big picture ideas; and use the subject to solve problems—everything it takes to genuinely learn how the forces acting on a material relate to its deformation and failure.

This book contains end-of-section problems that illustrate ideas, concepts, and procedures. Focused Application area problems demonstrate applications to real situations like: bicycles, cable stayed bridges, drilling of wells, exercise equipment, bone fracture fixation, and wind turbines.

Everyday objects can illustrate the ideas of Mechanics of Materials, and help students gain an intuitive understanding of concepts. This book starts with situations that students are familiar with, and progresses to the general, mathematical forms that enable wide application of the subject.
