Overview

FEATURES:

  • Features an abundance of imaginative, well-illustrated problems and examples.
  • Pedagogical features include chapter objectives, boxed equations, and bollaced headings and sub-headings. The book is paginated so topics and examples appear on facing pages—eliminating the need to keep flipping pages back and forth.
  • Includes advanced material such as inelastic loadings, stress concentrations, residual stress, stresses in curved and composite beams, and energy methods.
  • New to this edition: 20 % NEW problems, categorization of homework problems as basic, challenging, computer applications and design oriented.
  • NEW design problems, FIT exam review problems, enhancement of free-body diagram concept, photographs added to enhance the realism of the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“It is very difficult to find a text book that would compete with Hibbeler’s readability and clarity at the undergraduate level.” — Fady F. Barsoum, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

“The large variety of illustrated homework problems are helpful for class demonstrations, group problem solving and real situation homework assignments. The inside covers are a very handy resource for both students and instructors.” — Barbara Lograsso, Michigan Technological University

“Nice formulation and presentation of equations with clear drawings and photographs.” — Marehalli Prasad, Stevens Institute of Technology
