Mechanics of Materials – Russell C. Hibbeler – 9th Edition


For undergraduate of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace departments.

Containing ’s hallmark -oriented features, this text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help visualize difficult concepts. A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other text further contribute to ’ ability to master the material.

This feature can be found throughout the text, and is given just before the Fundamental . The intent here is to test the student’s conceptual understanding of the theory. Normally the require little or no calculation, and as such, these provide a basic understanding of the concepts before they are applied numerically. All the solutions are given in the back of the text.
