## Mechanics of MaterialsThis book emphasizes fundamental concepts and how to apply them to engineering situations and, at the same time, develops readers' analytical and problem-solving skills. It aims to make difficult ideas accessible to readers. Both USCS and SI units are used throughout. Material on fatigue and stress concentrations has been added. The section on dynamic loading now includes the effects of energy losses. |
