About the Book :
The sixth edition is updated and reorganized, each of the topics is thoroughly developed from fundamental principles. The assumptions, applicability and limitations of the methods are clearly discussed. Includes such advanced subjects as plasticity, creep, fracture, mechanics, flat plates, high cycle fatigue, contact stresses and finite elements. Due to the widespread use of the metric system, SI units are used throughout.
Interesting Facts :
Thorough and detailed development of theory of stress, theory of strain, and theory of stress-strain relations helps establish the theoretical basis for continued study of mechanics and elasticity.Complete treatment of classical topics of advanced mechanics. Topics are thoroughly developed from first principles, enabling students to develop an understanding of the source of the equations and the limitations of their application.Expanded elementary material, including more elementary examples and problems, helps to ease the transition from elements of mechanics of materials to advanced problems.New and revised examples and problems throughout the text.New section on strain energy of axially loaded springs.Revised coverage of deflections of statically indeterminate structures.Development of relationships between Lame's Coefficients and modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio; explicit presentation of plane stress, plane stain and axially symmetric stress-strain relations.New sections and problems on the rotating disk, and low-cycle fatigue.New section on the torsion of rectangular cross sections.Additional material on the torsion of box beams.
