We are also providing an authentic solution manual, formulated by our SMEs, for the same.Now available from Waveland Press, this outstanding text offers a comprehensive treatment of the principles of the mechanical behavior of materials. Appropriate for senior and graduate courses, mechanical behavior of materials is distinguished by its focus on the relationship between macroscopic properties, material microstructure, and fundamental concepts of bonding and crystal structure. The current, second edition retains the original edition?s extensive coverage of nonmetallics while increasing coverage of ceramics, composites, and polymers that have emerged as structural materials in their own right and are now competitive with metals in many applications. It contains new case studies, includes solved example problems, and incorporates real-life examples. Because of the book?s extraordinary breadth and depth, adequate coverage of all of the material requires two full semesters of a typical three-credit course. Since most curricula do not have the luxury of allocating this amount of time to mechanical behavior of materials, the text has been designed so that material can be culled or deleted with ease. Instructors can select topics they wish to emphasize and are able to proceed at any level they consider appropriate. Outstanding features: 1) includes a large number of chapter problems that range in difficulty from straightforward to challenging; 2) offers extensive figure captions with relevant information that makes it easier for students to study the figure without referring back to the text; 3) incorporates a less-formal, refreshing writing style readers will appreciate; and 4) opens with a brief overview chapter on the concepts of mechanics and strength of materials, which serves as a refresher for some students and as a source for reviewing macroscopic concepts as they are introduced throughout the book.
