From the Back Cover
State-of-the-art and practical in perspective, this classic exploration of stress analysis focuses on techniques for analysis in realistic settings. Unusually comprehensive, it provides uniquely balanced coverage of mechanics of materials, theory of elasticity methods, and computer-oriented numerical methods all supported with a broad range of fully worked-out examples. The Fourth Edition adds/expands coverage of mechanics of materials theory; three-dimensional stress and strain transformations; strain energy in common structural members; stress concentration in typical members; elastic-plastic analysis of thick-walled cylinders; application of strain energy and variational methods to beams on elastic foundations, buckling of columns, and plates; a complete new set of illustrative examples and problems many taken from engineering practice; and tables covering computer programs for principal stresses and area properties, deflection of beams, material properties, and conversion factors. For aeronautical, civil, and mechanical engineers.
