APPLIED STRENGTH OF MATERIALS 6/e, SI Units Version provides coverage of basic strength of materials for students in Engineering Technology (4-yr and 2-yr) and uses only SI units. Emphasizing applications, problem solving, design of structural members, mechanical devices and systems, the book has been updated to include coverage of the latest tools, trends, and techniques. Color graphics support visual learning, and illustrate concepts and applications. Numerous instructor resources are offered, including a Solutions Manual, PowerPoint slides, Figure Slides of book figures, and extra problems. With SI units used exclusively, this text is ideal for all Technology programs outside the USA.

"This book provides comprehensive coverage of the key topics in strength of materials–with an emphasis on applications, problem solving, and design of structural members, mechanical devices and systems. It includes coverage of the latest tools, trends and analysis techniques, and makes great use of example problems. This book provides good readability for the student, appropriate coverage of the principles of strength of materials and a problem-solving and design approach that is useful for the students, designer or engineer."

"The main attraction of the book being reviewed is the "Big Picture" aspect at the start of each chapter. This gives students a connection to what they already know with experience or what they see around in their daily life (of course with their engineering eyes!) and the topic being taught.
The other important of part or style of this book is, it is written with loads of explanations which make somebody new to these topics feel comfortable. Unlike some which scare student with lots of vectors and calculus are the very early lessons.
Lastly, having this author’s book fully written in SI unit is a great help of students around the globe, as many time students feel set back when they see US units in this part of the world."

"The chapters give real examples from life which provide better understanding for students. Examples given are also practical examples from life. In addition to these, SI unit system is easy to use and universal."
