Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work treats structural and continuum mechanics in a unified and consistent manner.

Analytical and graphical methods are given equal emphasis to account for the contemporary requirements of computer applications on one hand, and visualization and insight on the other hand. Therefore, all theoretical developments are presented both in the text and by means of an extensive set of figures. Text and figures complement each other, and this twofold presentation is also used in the examples. In the same spirit, both formal and intuitive (engineering) arguments are used in parallel to derive the principles used for instance in Bending Moment diagrams and Shear Stress diagrams. Importantly, sign conventions for member forces are related to the stress definitions of continuum mechanics and then applied consistently throughout the series.

Synopsis:

This is the first of two volumes introducing structural and continuum mechanics in a comprehensive and consistent way. The current book presents all theoretical developments both in text and by means of an extensive set of figures. This same approach is used in the many examples, drawings and problems. Both formal and intuitive (engineering) arguments are used in parallel to derive the principles used, for instance in bending moment diagrams and shear force diagrams. A very important aspect of this book is the straightforward and consistent sign convention, based on the stress definitions of continuum mechanics. The book is suitable for self-education.
