Statics and Mechanics of Materials 5th edition by Hibbeler (PDF) represents a combined abridged version of two of the author’s best ebooks, namely Mechanics of Materials 10th Edition and Engineering Mechanics: Statics 14th Edition. (Both of them are also available on our website). It provides a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental topics of these subjects, that are often used in many engineering disciplines. The development emphasizes the importance of compatibility of deformation, satisfying equilibrium, and material behavior requirements. The hallmark of the etextbook, however, remains the same as the author’s unabridged versions, and that is, strong emphasis is placed on drawing a free-body diagram, and the importance of selecting an appropriate coordinate system and an associated sign convention whenever the equations of mechanics are applied. Throughout the ebook, many design applications and analysis are presented, which involve mechanical elements and structural members often encountered in engineering practice.
