Mechanics of Materials – James M. Gere – 6th Edition


the Sixth Edition of this book continues its tradition as the leading text in Mechanics of . With its hallmark clarity and accuracy, this text develops understanding along with analytical and problem-solving skills. The main topics are the of structural members subjected to tension, , , bending, and more. The book includes more material than can be taught in a single course so instructors have the opportunity to select the topics they wish to cover.

Mechanics of materials is a basic subject that must be understood by anyone concerned with the and physical performance of structures, whether those structures are man-made or natural. The subject matter includes such as stresses and strains, deformations and displacements, elasticity and inelasticity, strain , and load-carrying capacity. These concepts underlie the design and analysis of a huge variety of mechanical and structural systems.
