For undergraduate Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering departments.
Thorough coverage, a highly visual presentation, and increased problem solving from an author you trust.
Mechanics of Materials clearly and thoroughly presents the theory and supports the application of essential mechanics of materials principles. Professor Hibbeler’s concise writing style, countless examples, and stunning four-color photorealistic art program — all shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers — help readers visualize and master difficult concepts.
This Edition retains the hallmark features synonymous with the Hibbeler franchise, but has been enhanced with the most current information, a fresh new layout, added problem solving, and increased flexibility in the way topics are covered.
Also available with MasteringEngineering™.
This title is also available with MasteringEngineering, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results.

Book Review by toothless
Excellent textbook. Hibbeler never seems to disappoint
Excellent textbook. Hibbeler never seems to disappoint. I have used both his statics and dynamics textbook and including this one all three books are well written. Information is easy to digest, and examples are very helpful and easy to follow. Just need to study more since the problems is where things get tough and requires a real good understanding just to solve.
Other than that this book is terrific! Only wish it was cheaper though since I’m just renting it from Amazon but I understand writing a good textbook is tough.
