Advanced Mechanics of Materials

Advanced Mechanics of Materials Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Treats topics by extending concepts and procedures a step or two beyond elementary mechanics of materials and emphasizes the physical view — mathematical complexity is not used where it is not needed. Includes new coverage of symmetry considerations, rectangular plates in bending, plastic action in plates, and critical speed of rotating shafts. Expands the coverage of fatigue, the reciprocal theorem, semi-inverse problems in elasticity, thermal stress, and buckling.

Book News Annotation:

Presenting sufficient material for a second two-semester sequence in the mechanics of materials without unduly complicated analytical or numerical methods, Cook (U. of Wisconsin-Madison) and Young acknowledge that there is little consensus as to what topics should comprise such a course. While nodding to the increasing role of computers in stress analysis, they emphasize the primacy of learning what the problems are over specific solutions or methods. This edition (no date noted for the first) offers mostly new homework exercises and expanded treatment of fatigue, rectangular plates, plastic action in plates, and buckling. Other topics include: failure criteria, applications of energy methods, beams, elements of theory of elasticity, and torsion. The inside covers feature standard properties and relationships.
