View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The aim of this volume is to cover the standard topics of mechanics of materials as well as subject matter of a more advanced and specialized nature. The topics discussed include the analysis and design of structural members subjected to axial loads, torsion and bending, as well as such fundamental concepts as stress, strain, elastic and inelastic behaviour and strain energy. Other topics of general interest are the transformations of stress and strain, stress concentrations, deflections of beams, behaviour of columns and energy methods. More specialized subjects are thermal and prestrain effects, pressure vessels, nonprismatic members, discontinuity functions, shear centre and inelastic bending. The book is designed in such a way that teachers have the opportunity to select the topics that they feel are the most fundamental and relevant. Each section includes a number of problems for homework assignments and discussions.
