For undergraduate Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering departments.

This text provides a clear, comprehensive presentation of both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. It examines the physical behavior of materials under load, then proceeds to model this behavior to development theory. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined units that allow instructors great flexibility in course emphasis. Hibbeler combines a fluid writing style, cohesive organization, outstanding illustrations, and dynamic use of exercises, examples, and free body diagrams to help prepare tomorrow's engineers.
