Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, 5th Australia and New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119673033

The well-regarded materials science textbook, updated for enhanced learning and current content

Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, 5th Australia and New Zealand Edition helps engineering students visualise how materials move and change better than any other course available. This text focuses on helping learners develop practical skills, encouraging them to recognise fundamental concepts relevant to specific situations, identify equations needed to solve problems, and engage critically with literature in the field. In this new edition, hundreds of new practice and test problems—including over 200 problems with video solutions—have been added to enhance the flexibility and robustness of the course.

Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System is part of the Wiley Re-Engineered program, designed to match how students learn. The enhanced E-Text is organised in a Practice → Study → Read format to match how engineering students’ study. The E-Text includes many of the interactive and multimedia resources including practice problems and solutions.


  • Introduces students to the core concepts of material mechanics and presents the latest methods and current problems in the field.
  • Emphasises practical skills and critical thinking, encouraging learners to devise effective methods of solving example problems.
  • Contains updates and revisions to reflect the current state of the discipline and to enhance the breadth of course content.
