Mechanics of Materials PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Mechanics of Materials free pdf "Mechanics of Materials Brief Edition" by Gere and Goodno presents thorough and in-depth coverage of the essential topics required for an introductory course in Mechanics of Materials. This user-friendly text gives complete discussions with an emphasis on 'need to know' material with a minimization of 'nice to know' content. Topics considered beyond the scope of a first course in the subject matter have been eliminated to better tailor the text to the introductory course. Continuing the tradition of hallmark clarity and accuracy found in all 7 full editions of "Mechanics of Materials", this text develops student understanding along with analytical and problem-solving skills. The main topics include analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, bending, and more.

About Barry J. Goodno

Barry John Goodno is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He was an Evans Scholar and received a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin in 1970. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Structural Engineering from Stanford University in 1971 and 1975, respectively. He holds a professional engineering license (PE) in Georgia, is a Fellow of ASCE and an Inaugural Fellow of SEI, and has held numerous leadership positions within ASCE. Dr. Goodno is a member of the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) of ASCE and is a past president of the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Board of Governors. James M. Gere (1925-2008) earned his undergraduate and master's degree in Civil Engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1949 and 1951, respectively. He worked as an instructor and later as a Research Associate for Rensselaer. He was awarded one of the first NSF Fellowships, and chose to study at Stanford. He received his Ph.D. in 1954 and was offered a faculty position in Civil Engineering, beginning a 34-year career of engaging his students in challenging topics in mechanics, and structural and earthquake engineering. He authored nine texts on various engineering subjects starting in 1972 with Mechanics of Materials. He served as Department Chair and Associate Dean of Engineering and in 1974 co-founded the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford. In 1980, Jim Gere also became the founding head of the Stanford Committee on Earthquake Preparedness. That same year, he was invited as one of the first foreigners to study the earthquake-devastated city of Tangshan, China. Jim retired from Stanford in 1988 but continued to be an active and most valuable member of the Stanford community.
