1 Review

This clear, comprehensive presentation discusses both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. It examines the physical behavior of materials under load, then proceeds to model this behavior to development theory.Containing    Hibbeler’s hallmark student-oriented features, this book is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students/readers   visualize difficult concepts.  A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other book further contribute to students’ /readers ability to master the material. A useful, thorough reference for engineers and students.
