From the Back Cover

A comprehensive textbook on the mechanics and strength of materials for students of engineering throughout their undergraduate career. Assuming little or no prior knowledge, all of the topics of stress and strain analysis are covered. Mechanical properties such as tensile behavior, fatigue, creep, fracture, and impact are discussed, including the introduction of such advanced topics as finite element analysis, fracture mechanics, and composite materials. Computers and spreadsheets are used throughout to show their power as problem-solving tools.
