Your ticket to excelling in mechanics of materials

Mechanics of Materials For Dummies gives you plain-English explanations of all the topics you'll encounter in a typical undergraduate course, including principles of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and material behavior; stress and its relation to force and movement; strain and its relation to displacement; and methods for calculating deformations and indeterminate systems.

  • Brush up on basics — get a quick refresher on math and units, a brief review of essential statics topics, and an easy-to-follow introduction to mechanics of materials

  • Sharpen your skills — find out which skills you need to master, including section property calculations, internal force diagrams, and how to locate the centroid of an area

  • Stop stressing — get the 411 on the basic types of stress, grasp the difference between average stress and stress at a point, and learn to transform stresses to find principal values and angles

  • Strain for more — discover how objects deform in response to strain, how you compute maximum and minimum strain values, and how to determine strain orientation within an object

  • Compute displacements — explore different ways to compute deformations of objects under loads for both statically determinate and indeterminate systems

Open the book and find:

  • How to use mechanics to understand material behavior

  • Methods for calculating stresses and strains

  • Basic torsion theory

  • How to calculate deformations, displacements, and angles of twist

  • How to solve indeterminate systems and composite materials problems

  • Mohr's circle for transformations

  • Hooke's law for stress and strain

Learn to:

  • Understand key mechanics concepts

  • Grasp principles of stress, strain, and deformation and their interactions

  • Solve indeterminate statics problems
