A classic Schaum’s Outline, thoroughly updated to match the latest course scope and sequence. The ideal review for the thousands of civil and mechanical engineering students who enroll in strength of materials courses.
About the Book
An update of this successful outline in strength of materials, modified to conform to the current curriculum. Schaum’s Outline of Strength of Materials mirrors the course in scope and sequence to help enrolled students understand basic concepts and offer extra practice on topics such as determinate force systems, indeterminate force systems, torsion, cantilever beams, statically determinate beams, and statically indeterminate beams. Coverage will also include centroid of an area, parallel-axis theorem for moment of inertia of a finite area, radius of gyration, product of inertia of an element of area, principal moments of inertia, and information from statics.
