Overview

The approach of the Beer and Johnston texts has been appreciated by hundreds of thousands of students over decades of engineering education. The Statics and Mechanics of Materials text uses this proven methodology in a new book aimed at programs that teach these two subjects together or as a two-semester sequence.

Maintaining the proven methodology and pedagogy of the Beer and Johnston series, Statics and Mechanics of Materials combines the theory and application behind these two subjects into one cohesive text. A wealth of problems, Beer and Johnston’s hallmark Sample Problems, and valuable Review and Summary sections at the end of each chapter highlight the key pedagogy of the text.

This book is for a college level engineering class. The examples are very clearly structured in a step-by-step manner that makes it easy to follow. The text is written to be understood; easy to read and to the point. This is one I will be hanging onto for future reference. If someone asked how to make it better....more examples would be the only thing I could think of.
