This book provides a systematic, modern introduction to solid mechanics that is carefully motivated by realistic Engineering applications. Based on 25 years of teaching experience, Raymond Parnes uses a wealth of examples and a rich set of problems to build the readera s understanding of the scientific principles, without requiring a higher mathematicsa . Highlights of the book include aeo The use of modern SI units throughout aeo A thorough presentation of the subject stressing basic unifying concepts aeo Comprehensive coverage, including topics such as the behaviour of materials on a phenomenological level. aeo Over 600 problems, many of which are designed for solving with MATLAB, MAPLE or MATHEMATICA. Solid Mechanics in Engineering is designed for 2--semester courses in Solid Mechanics or Strength of Materials taken by students in Mechanical, Civil or Aeronautical Engineering and Materials Science and may also be used for a first--year graduate program.
