History of Strength of Materials Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This excellent historical survey of the strength of materials features many references to the theories of elasticity and structure. Based on an extensive series of lectures, it explores the early roots of the discipline from the great monuments and pyramids of ancient Egypt to the temples and fortifications of the Greeks and Romans. 245 figures.
