Description

  In the 6th edition of Mechanics of Materials, author team Riley, Sturges, and Morris continue to provide students with the latest information in the field, as well as realistic and motivating problems. This updated revision of Mechanics of Materials (formerly Higdon, Olsen and Stiles) features thorough treatment of stress, strain, and the stress-strain relationships. These topics are covered before the customary treatments of axial loading, torsion, flexure, and buckling, allowing for earlier introduction of more realistic problems, such as those associated with combined loadings.

Riley, Sturges, and Morris continue to write in a student-friendly style that includes new illustrations throughout each chapter. The text stresses the use of fundamental principles and the concepts of mechanics to solve all problems. As a result, students must apply the information presented in each chapter to answer realistic problems instead of simply using formulas. This problem solving method motivates students to learn the material because they see how it is used in the real world.

Index.

  • Many new examples and homework problems added throughout the text

  • Consistent sign convention for internal forces established in chapter 1 and followed throughout the text.

  • Expanded and improved discussion of the stress element (chapter 2)

  • New Sections on Combined Loading in Chapters 5, 6, and 7.

  • Online tutorials, animations, and activities accompany most chapters.  Developed by Tim Philpot (Univ of Missouri-Rolla), MecMovies, winner of the Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Software, provides students visual support, content explanations, and activities involving both visualization and problem solving.  References to MecMovies are included in the margins of the text, and a new class of problems, MecMovie Activities and Problems, accompany most end-of-section exercises. 

  • Early introduction to Mohr?s Circle (Chapter 4) allows for earlier introduction of realistic problems, including those involving combined loadings.  By introducing Mohr?s Circle early and using it in the following chapters, this text helps students practice using this difficult concept throughout the course rather than leaving in until the end. 
  • Large number of realistic problems, divided into Introductory, Intermediate, and Challenging problems.
  • End-of-chapter Review Problems help students apply concepts from the entire chapter instead of one individual section. 
  • Design sections included with most chapters.
