Mechanics of Materials, 6th Edition by James M. Gere- for free


Mechanics of materials is a fundamental engineering subject that must be understood by all those concerned with the strength and physical performance of structures, whether man-made or natural. This subject includes fundamental concepts such as stress and strain, deformation and displacement, elasticity and inelasticity, strain energy, and load carrying capacity. These concepts provide the basis for the design and analysis of a wide variety of mechanical and structural systems.

At the university level, mechanics of materials is typically taught in the sophomore and junior years. It is required for most students majoring in mechanical engineering, structural engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and aerospace engineering. In addition, many students from such diverse fields as materials science, industrial engineering, architecture, and agricultural engineering also find the subject beneficial.

About the Book

The main topics covered in this book are the analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, and bending, including the basic concepts mentioned at the beginning. Other general topics covered include stress and strain transformations, combined loading, stress concentrations, beam deflections, and column stability.

Specialized topics include: thermal effects, dynamic loading, non-columnar members, beams composed of two materials, shear centers, pressure vessels, discontinuity (singularity) functions, and statically indeterminate beams. For completeness and occasional reference, elementary topics such as shear forces, bending moments, centroids, and moments of inertia are also introduced.

This book contains much more content than can be taught in a single course. Topics can be selected. As a guide, the more specialized topics are indicated by an asterisk in the Table of Contents.
