Mechanics of Materials
In contrast to the study of statics where the dimensions of a member are assumed to remain constant under load, the study of Mechanics of Materials does consider changes in the dimensions of a member. These changes, called deformations or deflections, are caused by the loading and are a function of the properties of the material.
