This text is an established bestseller in engineering technology programs, and the Seventh Edition of Applied Strength of Materials continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the mechanics of materials. Focusing on active learning and consistently reinforcing key concepts, the book is designed to aid students in their first course on the strength of materials.
Introducing the theoretical background of the subject, with a strong visual component, the book equips readers with problem-solving techniques. The updated Seventh Edition incorporates new technologies with a strong pedagogical approach. Emphasizing realistic engineering applications for the analysis and design of structural members, mechanical devices, and systems, the book includes such topics as torsional deformation, shearing stresses in beams, pressure vessels, and design properties of materials. A "big picture" overview is included at the beginning of each chapter, and step-by-step problem-solving approaches are used throughout the book.
Includes "the big picture" introductions that map out chapter coverage and provide a clear context for readers
Contains everyday examples to provide context for students of all levels
Offers examples from civil, mechanical, and other branches of engineering technology
Integrates analysis and design approaches for strength of materials, backed up by real engineering examples
Examines the latest tools, techniques, and examples in applied engineering mechanics
This book will be of interest to students in the field of engineering technology and materials engineering as an accessible and understandable introduction to a complex field.
