Mechanics of Materials

For the past forty years, Beer and Johnston have been the uncontested leaders in the teaching of undergraduate engineering mechanics. Their careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail has made their texts the standard for excellence. The revision of their classic "Mechanics of Materials" text features a new and updated design and art program; almost every homework problem is new or revised; and extensive content revisions and text reorganizations have been made. The multimedia supplement package includes an extensive strength of materials: Interactive Tutorial (created by George Staab and Brooks Breeden of The Ohio State University) to provide students with additional help on key concepts, and a custom book website offers online resources for both instructors and students.
