Mechanical Behavior of Materials – Norman E. Dowling – 3rd Edition

Primarily for use in upper level undergraduate courses in of Materials. With an eye on new technology and a concern for safety and durability in engineering design, this covers the entire of of materials from a practical engineering viewpoint, providing a single-source introductory analysis with specific coverage on materials testing, yield criteria, stress-based fatigue, fracture , crack growth, strain-based fatigue, and creep.

It is ideal for students who have completed elementary mechanics of materials and who need to study practical engineering methods for analyzing parts of machines, vehicles, and structures to determine if trial designs or existing parts are adequate enough to ensure the components’ strength and durability.
