The approach of the Beer and Johnston texts has been utilized by hundreds of thousands of students over decades of engineering education. The Statics and Mechanics of Materials text uses this proven methodology in a new book aimed at programs that teach these two subjects together or as a two-semester sequence. Maintaining the proven methodology and pedagogy of their other textbooks, Beer and Johnston's Statics and Mechanics of Materials combines the theory and application behind these two subjects into one cohesive text. A wealth of problems, Beer and Johnston's hallmark Sample Problems, and valuable Review and Summary sections at the end of each chapter highlight the key pedagogy of the text.
