Mechanics of Materials – Paul S. Steif – 1st Edition


of helps gain and intuitive understanding of the ideas underlying the of materials; grasp big picture ideas; and use the subject to solve —everything it takes to genuinely learn how the forces acting on a material relate to its deformation and failure.

This book contains end-of-section that illustrate ideas, concepts, and procedures. Focused Application area problems demonstrate applications to real situations like: bicycles, cable stayed bridges, drilling of wells, exercise equipment, bone fixation, and wind turbines.

Everyday objects can illustrate the ideas of of Materials, and help gain an intuitive understanding of concepts. This book starts with situations that students are familiar with, and progresses to the general, mathematical forms that enable wide application of the subject.
