For the past fifty years, Beer and Johnston have been the uncontested leaders in the teaching of undergraduate engineering mechanics. Their careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail have made their texts the standard for excellence.
The main objective of a mechanics course should be to develop in the engineering student, the ability to analyze a given problem in a simple and logical manner, and to apply to its solution, a few fundamental and well-understood principles. This text is designed for the first course in mechanics of materials - or strength of materials - offered to engineering students in the sophomore or junior year.
