Synopses & Reviews
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.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 471-476) and index.
