We are pleased to present the Global Edition which has been developed specifically to meet the needs of international students of engineering mechanics. In addition to a precise presentation of the subject illustrated with numerous engineering examples from theory and practice, we have added new material to make the content more relevant and improve learning outcomes for the international student. Used by thousands of students around the globe since its publication in 1981, "Mechanics of Materials" provides a precise presentation of the subject illustrated with numerous engineering examples that students both understand and relate to in theory and application. The tried and true methodology for presenting material gives your student the best opportunity to succeed in this course. From the detailed examples, to the homework problems, to the carefully developed solutions manual, you and your students can be confident the material is clearly explained and accurately represented.
