Advanced Mechanics of Materials – Arthur P. Boresi – 6th Edition


on the success of five previous editions, this new sixth edition continues to present a unified to the study of the behavior of members and the of and failure criteria.

The text treats each type of structural member in sufficient detail so that the resulting are directly applicable to real-world . New examples for various types of member and a large number of new are included. To facilitate the transition from elementary of to advanced topics, a review of the elements of mechanics of is presented along with appropriate examples and problems.
