Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity, Fifth Edition

Book Description

Long the leading text for students and practitioners in advanced materials mechanics, this new edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the newest techniques, supporting more advanced study and professional design and analysis for the coming decade. More complete and current than ever, this edition systematically explores real-world stress analysis, and introduces state-of-the-art methods and applications used throughout aeronautical, civil, and mechanical engineering and engineering mechanics. Distinguished by exceptional visual interpretations of the solutions, it carefully balances thorough treatments of solid mechanics, elasticity, and computer-oriented numerical methods. This edition adds many new fully worked illustrative examples and extensive problem sets, many taken directly from practice. Other major changes and improvements include: " A new first chapter reviewing key fundamentals " New coverage of the computer oriented Finite Element Method " Rewritten coverage of plastic behavior, the three-dimensional Mohr's circle, and energy methods " Expanded, more contemporary coverage of stress concentration factors and contact stress developments " New coverage of engineering design, materials, beams, compound cylinders, shrink fits, buckling, and shells
