Highlights of the book include The use of modern SI units throughoutA thorough presentation of the subject stressing basic unifying conceptsComprehensive coverage, including topics such as the behaviour of materials on a phenomenological levelOver 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.


...The book is clearly laid out, well illustrated and the quality of reproduction is excellent...highly recommended.. ( Materials World, September 2002)
