Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The Used and Rental copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


This clear, comprehensive presentation discusses both the theory and applications of mechanics of materials. It examines the physical behavior of materials under load, then proceeds to model this behavior to development theory. Containing&&& Hibbeler's hallmark student-oriented features, this&book is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students/readers&& visualize difficult concepts.& A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other&book further contribute to students' /readers ability to master the material.& A useful, thorough reference for engineers and students. & &
