Mechanics of Materials 5th Edition in SI Unit
Overview of this text: it is designed for the first course in mechanics of materials – or strength of materials – offered to engineering students in the sophomore or junior year. The main objective is to help develop in the engineering student the ability to analyse a given problem in a simple and logical manner and to apply to its solution a few fundamental and well-understood principles. In this text, the study of the mechanics of materials is based on the understanding of a few basic concepts and on the use of simplified models. This approach makes it possible to develop all the necessary formulas in a rational and logical manner and to clearly indicate the conditions under which they can be safely applied to the analysis and design of actual engineering structures and machine components. Features of this title include new and revised problems as well as Hands-On Mechanics which helps the professor build in-class experiments that demonstrate complicated topics in the text. The experiments and instructions are posted on associate website. McGraw-Hill’s ARIS (Assessment, Review and Instruction System) is a complete, online tutorial, electronic homework and course management system, designed for greater ease of use than any other system available. For students, ARIS contains self-study tools such as animation and interactive quizzes, and it enables students to complete and submit their homework online. For instructors, ARIS provides teaching resources online, and allows them to create or edit problems from the question bank, import their own contents, and grade and report easy-to-assign homework, quizzes and tests. ARIS is free for instructors, while students can purchase access from the bookstore or the ARIS website.

Fully up-to-date coverage of human factors engineering—plus online access to interactive demonstrations and exercises
Engineering accomplishments can be as spectacular as a moon landing or as mundane as an uneventful drive to the local grocery store. Their failures can be as devastating as a plane crash or a massive oil spill. Over the past decade, psychologists and engineers have made great strides in understanding how humans interact with complex engineered systems—human engineering.
Introduction to Humans in Engineered Systems provides historical context for the discipline and an overview of some of the real-world settings in which human engineering has been successfully applied, including aviation, medicine, computer science, and ground transportation. It presents findings on the nature and variety of human-engineering environments, human capabilities and limitations, and how these factors influence system performance. Important features include:
- Contents organized around the interaction of the human operator with the larger environment to guide the analysis of real-world situations
- A web-based archive of interactive demonstrations, exercises, and links to additional readings and tools applicable to a range of application domains
- Web content customizable for focus on particular areas of study or research

About the Author
Javad Hashemi is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University and is currently serving as the Associate Dean for Research in the Edward E. Whitacre College of Engineering. Javad received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University in 1988. He has been teaching undergraduate and graduate materials and mechanics courses, as well as laboratories, at Texas Tech University since 1991. Dr. Hashemi has an extensive research background in manufacturing, structural, and synthesis aspects of materials. His current research focus is the areas of materials, biomaterials, and engineering education. The late William F. Smith was Professor Emeritus of Engineering in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Central Florida at Orlando, Florida. He was awarded an M.S. degree in metallurgical engineering from Purdue University and a Sc.D. degree in metallurgy from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Smith, who was a registered professional engineer in the states of California and Florida, taught undergraduate and graduate materials science and engineering courses and actively wrote textbooks for many years. He was also the author of Structure and Properties of Engineering Alloys, Second Edition (McGraw- Hill, 1993).
This text book on Hydraulic Machines provides an in-depth coverage of the descriptions, characteristics, underlying principles of working and applications of hydraulic machines. An attempt is made in the book to indicate present trends in practice and analysis in hydraulic turbines and pumps. Applications of various Hydraulic Machines are highlighted.
Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach, eighth edition, covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. This text helps students develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel and Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply their knowledge. Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student. Some of the figures and photographs in the text are intended to serve as a means of emphasizing key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed. This edition includes over 500 new problems and a significant number of the existing problems are modified. An important change is the update of the R-134a tables to make property values consistent with those from the latest version of EES (Engineering Equasion Solver). All the solved examples and end-of-chapter problems dealing with R-134a are modified to reflect this change.
