Statics and Mechanics of Materials – Beer & Johnston – 2nd Edition


The approach of the Beer and Johnston texts has been appreciated by hundreds of thousands of students over decades of engineering education. The Statics and Mechanics of Materials text uses this proven methodology in an – extensively revised second edition aimed at programs that teach these two subjects together or as a two semester sequence.

Maintaining the proven methodology and pedagogy of the Beer and Johnson series Statics and Mechanics of Materials second edition combines the theory and application behind these two subjects into one cohesive text. A wealth of problems Beer and Johnston’s hallmark sample problems and valuable review and summary sections at the end of each chapter highlight the key pedagogy of the text.

Also available with this second edition is Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more engaging and effective.
