Mechanics of Materials Sixth Edition 

The main objective of a basic mechanics course should be to develop
in the engineering student the ability to analyze a given problem in

a simple and logical manner and to apply to its solution a few fun-
damental and well-understood principles. This text is designed for

the first course in mechanics of materials—or strength of materials—
offered to engineering students in the sophomore or junior year. The
authors hope that it will help instructors achieve this goal in that
particular course in the same way that their other texts may have
helped them in statics and dynamics.
is expected that students using this text will have completed a
course in statics. However, Chap. 1 is designed to provide them with
an opportunity to review the concepts learned in that course, while
shear and bending-moment diagrams are covered in detail in Secs.
5.2 and 5.3. The properties of moments and centroids of areas are
described in Appendix A; this material can be used to reinforce the
discussion of the determination of normal and shearing stresses in beams
