Teachers Manual available. -- The publisher, John Wiley & Sons --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Designed to emphasize the fundamental principles, this book includes abundant applications to demonstrate and develop logical orderly methods of procedure. Instead of deriving numerous formulas for all types of problems, the authors have stressed the use of free-body diagrams and the equations of equilibrium, together with the geometry of the deformed body and the observed relations between stress and strain, for the analysis of the force system action of a body. Most chapters conclude with a section on design principles, a summary of important concepts plus examples, homework and review problems. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers the material well. Some of the later chapters tend to loose the reader with a bunch of jargon. Overall, the book facilitated my learning of the material. I am still wondering about a solutions manual to accompany the text.

I really tried to follow this book, but I had a hard time keeping up with the poorly written text and mediocre examples. There are lots of good, well-written problems, but no way to see them solved out step by step. The back contains some answers to random questions, but I was really expecting more out of it. There is no online site for students to accompany the text, and I really just could not wrap my head around the material as a beginning engineering student. Maybe this text would be preferable for someone with a background in statics or a foundation in the material already. If this is a required text for your class, I might consider some other supplementary material...

I'm methodically working through this book as I prepare for a class on structural analysis. Having had mechanics of materials and statics, I find this book to be very well written with clear, succinct explanations of the theory at hand. I recommend it.

One of the better textbooks from my semester...good, worked-out examples, and plenty of practice problems to help to prepare yourself for exams!

Format: Hardcover
Probably the best textbook for mechanics of materials for the most intuitive learning experience. I love how especially the book continuously uses plots to make it easy to verify equations and how values make sense intuitively.

The most important aspect of this text that differs from other mechanics of materials texts is how gritty the text is about the content; the text goes straight into the important content (cuts out all extra details) and following very broad examples that are absolutely nontrivial.

In the photos attached, you'll see the example I'm using.
