Mechanics of Materials: With Applications in Excel
Mechanics of Materials: With Applications in Excel(R) covers the fundamentals of the mechanics of materials-or strength of materials-in a clear and easily understandable way. Each chapter explains the theory of the underlying principles and the applicable mathematical relations, offering examples that illustrate the application of the mathematical relations to physical situations. Then, homework problems-arranged from the simplest to the most demanding-are presented, along with a number of challenging review problems, to ensure comprehension of key concepts. What makes this book unique is that it also instills practical skills for developing Microsoft Excel applications to solve mechanics of materials problems using numerical techniques. Mechanics of Materials: With Applications in Excel(R) provides editable Excel spreadsheets representing all the examples featured in the text, PowerPoint lecture slides, multimedia simulations, graphics files, and a solutions manual with qualifying course adoption.

Discover a new generation of organic nanomaterials and their applications
Recent developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology have given rise to a new generation of functional organic nanomaterials with controlled morphology and well-defined properties, which enable a broad range of useful applications. This book explores some of the most important of these organic nanomaterials, describing how they are synthesized and characterized. Moreover, the book explains how researchers have incorporated organic nanomaterials into devices for real-world applications.
Featuring contributions from an international team of leading nanoscientists, Organic Nanomaterials is divided into five parts:
- Part One introduces the fundamentals of nanomaterials and self-assembled nanostructures
- Part Two examines carbon nanostructures—from fullerenes to carbon nanotubes to graphene—reporting on properties, theoretical studies, and applications
- Part Three investigates key aspects of some inorganic materials, self-assembled monolayers, organic field effect transistors, and molecular self-assembly at solid surfaces
- Part Four explores topics that involve both biological aspects and nanomaterials such as biofunctionalized surfaces
- Part Five offers detailed examples of how organic nanomaterials enhance sensors and molecular photovoltaics
Most of the chapters end with a summary highlighting the key points. References at the end of each chapter guide readers to the growing body of original research reports and reviews in the field.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of organic nanomaterials, this book is recommended for researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science, polymer science, and chemical and materials engineering. All readers will learn the principles of synthesizing and characterizing new organic nanomaterials in order to support a broad range of exciting new applications.

A long overdue update, this edition of Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials is a complete revision of its predecessor. While it provides relatively minor updates to the first two sections, the third section contains vast updates to reflect the enormous progress made in applications in the past 15 years, particularly in magnetic recording. The book includes significant updates to soft magnetic materials, hard magnetic materials, magnetic data storage, and magnetic evaluation of materials. It also adds new information on magneto-transport, small particles, nanomagnetism, magnetic semiconductors, spintronics, and high-frequency magnetism. See What’s New in the Third Edition * New coverage of applications of magnetism and magnetic materials, especially in magnetic recording * Additional exercises with complete worked-out solutions at the end of the book * Updated references at the end of each chapter The book adopts an unusual but effectively focused question-answer framework. Each major head is introduced by a question followed by an attempt to answer. This approach maintains attention to the subject matter at hand and clarifies the objective of each section without needless digression. Each chapter also features updated and new exercise problems, accompanied by a solutions manual at the back of the book. This edition gives you an excellent introduction to the key and current theories, practices, and applications of magnetics and magnetic materials.

Presents Concepts That Can Be Used in Design, Processing, Testing, and Control of Composite Materials Introduction to the Micromechanics of Composite Materials weaves together the basic concepts, mathematical fundamentals, and formulations of micromechanics into a systemic approach for understanding and modeling the effective material behavior of composite materials. As various emerging composite materials have been increasingly used in civil, mechanical, biomedical, and materials engineering, this textbook provides students with a fundamental understanding of the mechanical behavior of composite materials and prepares them for further research and development work with new composite materials. Students will understand from reading this book: * The basic concepts of micromechanics such as RVE, eigenstrain, inclusions, and in homogeneities * How to master the constitutive law of general composite material * How to use the tensorial indicial notation to formulate the Eshelby problem * Common homogenization methods The content is organized in accordance with a rigorous course. It covers micromechanics theory, the microstructure of materials, homogenization, and constitutive models of different types of composite materials, and it enables students to interpret and predict the effective mechanical properties of existing and emerging composites through microstructure-based modeling and design. As a prerequisite, students should already understand the concepts of boundary value problems in solid mechanics. Introduction to the Micromechanics of Composite Materials is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students.

A primary objective in a first course in mechanics is to help develop a student’s ability first to analyze problems in a simple and logical manner, and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems. This edition of Vector Mechanics for Engineers will help instructors achieve these goals. Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, this edition provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your students. This edition has undergone a complete rewrite to modernize and streamline the language through the text. Over 650 of the homework problems in the text are new or revised. One of the characteristics of the approach used in this book is that mechanics of particles is clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of the more difficult concepts.
McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student’s work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a “multi-step solution” which helps move the students’ learning along if they experience difficulty.
