Mechanics of Engineering Materials, 2nd edition
Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.
This second edition has been brought fully up-to-date in line with today's courses. Incorporating new, two-colour illustrations throughout, the book reinforces student comprehension of the theory through numerous new worked examples and end-of-chapter problems involving real engineering situations. An important new feature of this edition is the use and illustration of computer spreadsheets throughout as a powerful problem-solving tool.
Mechanics of Engineering Materials is an indispensible course text for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering, engineering science and civil engineering. It will also be a valuable reference for those studying BTEC and GNVQ courses.
