Overview

Develop a thorough understanding of the mechanics of materials ' an area essential for success in mechanical, civil and structural engineering -- with the analytical approach and problem-solving emphasis found in Goodno/Gere's leading MECHANICS OF MATERIALS, Enhanced, SI, 9th Edition. This book focuses on the analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion and bending. This ENHANCED EDITION guides you through a proven four-step problem-solving approach for systematically analyzing, dissecting and solving structure design problems and evaluating solutions. Memorable examples, helpful photographs and detailed diagrams and explanations demonstrate reactive and internal forces as well as resulting deformations. You gain the important foundation you need to pursue further study as you practice your skills and prepare for the FE exam.

Author Information

Barry John Goodno is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. He joined the Georgia Tech faculty in 1974. He was an Evans Scholar and received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Structural Engineering from Stanford University. He holds a professional engineering license (P.E.) in Georgia, is a Distinguished Member of ASCE and an Inaugural Fellow of SEI and has held numerous leadership positions within ASCE. He is a member of the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) of ASCE and is a past president of the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Board of Governors. He is also past-chair of the ASCE-SEI Technical Activities Division (TAD) Executive Committee and past-chair of the ASCE-SEI Awards Committee. In 2002, Dr. Goodno received the SEI Dennis L. Tewksbury Award for outstanding service to ASCE-SEI. He received the departmental award for Leadership in Use of Technology in 2013 for his pioneering use of lecture capture technologies in undergraduate statics and mechanics of materials courses at Georgia Tech. Dr. Goodno is also a member of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) and has held leadership positions within the NSF-funded Mid-America Earthquake Center (MAE), directing the MAE Memphis Test Bed Project. Dr. Goodno has carried out research, taught graduate courses and published extensively in areas of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics during his tenure at Georgia Tech. Like co-author and mentor James Gere, he has completed numerous marathons including qualifying for and running the Boston Marathon in 1987. James M. Gere (1925-2008) earned his undergraduate and M.A. degrees in Civil Engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he worked as instructor and research associate. He was awarded one of the first NSF Fellowships and studied at Stanford, where he earned his Ph.D. He joined the faculty in Civil Engineering, beginning a 34-year career of engaging his students in mechanics, structural and earthquake engineering. Dr. Gere served as Department Chair and Associate Dean of Engineering and co-founded the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford. Dr. Gere also founded the Stanford Committee on Earthquake Preparedness. He was one of the first foreigners invited to study the earthquake-devastated city of Tangshan, China. Although he retired in 1988, Dr. Gere continued to be an active, valued member of the Stanford community. Known for his cheerful personality, athleticism and skill as an educator, Dr. Gere authored nine texts on engineering subjects starting with this leading book, MECHANICS OF MATERIALS, which was inspired by teacher and mentor Stephan P. Timoshenko. His other well-known textbooks, used in engineering courses around the world, include: THEORY OF ELASTIC STABILITY, co-authored with S. Timoshenko; MATRIX ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES and MATRIX ALGEBRA FOR ENGINEERS, both co-authored with W. Weaver; MOMENT DISTRIBUTION; EARTHQUAKE TABLES: STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION DESIGN MANUAL, co-authored with H. Krawinkler; and TERRA NON FIRMA: UNDERSTANDING AND PREPARING FOR EARTHQUAKES, co-authored with H. Shah. In 1986 he hiked to the base camp of Mount Everest, saving the life of a companion on the trip. An avid runner, Dr. Gere completed the Boston Marathon at age 48 in a time of 3:13. Dr. Gere is remembered as a considerate and loving man whose upbeat humor always made aspects of daily life and work easier.
