This is a textbook for the second core course in Mechanics of Materials, offered through the mechanical engineering departments. Vable makes the intermediate course in Mechanics of Materials coherent by building a logic of structural analysis. In this logic, displacements, strains, stresses and internal and external forces and moments are related. This helps the students clarify the complex topic and understand the relationships more
