The Eighth Edition of MECHANICS OF MATERIALS continues its tradition as one of the leading texts on the market. With its hallmark clarity and accuracy, 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. The book includes more material than can be taught in a single course giving instructors the opportunity to select the topics they wish to cover while leaving any remaining material as a valuable student reference.

Dr. Barry J. Goodno is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a member of the Structural Engineering (SEI) and Engineering Mechanics (EMI) Institutes of ASCE. He is a Past-President of the SEI Board of Governors. He teaches graduate courses at Georgia Institute of Technology in structural dynamics and matrix structural analysis, as well as undergraduate courses at Georgia Tech in statics and dynamics and mechanics of materials. He conducts research and has published extensively in the areas of earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, matrix structural analysis, hybrid control of structures, influence of nonstructural systems on building response, base isolation, vibrations, and finite element analysis. Dr. Goodno received his Ph.D. from Stanford University and is a registered Professional Engineer in Georgia.
