Sophomore/junior-level Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, Aerospace, Engineering Mechanics, and/or general engineering departments. This text presents the foundations and applications of mechanics of materials by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topicsespecially through the use of free body diagrams. This text also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format in examples. Bedford/Liechti further includes design sections that help instructors integrate ABET 2000 requirements.
