Statics and Mechanics of Materials – Beer & Johnston – 1st Edition

The approach of the Beer & texts has been utilized by hundreds of thousands of students over decades of engineering education. The Statics and of Materials text uses this proven methodology in a new book aimed at programs that teach these two subjects together or as a two-semester sequence.

Maintaining the proven methodology and pedagogy of their other textbooks, Beer & Johnston’s Statics and Mechanics of Materials combines the theory and behind these two subjects into one cohesive text. A wealth of , Beer and Johnston’s hallmark Sample , and valuable Review and Summary sections at the end of each chapter highlight the key pedagogy of the text.
