Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover


  • Provides a new toolbox designed for statics and strength of materials. These toolboxes include routines that will solve a number of problems.
  • truss problems
  • shape properties such as Ix, Iy, centroid location, area, and more
  • will draw shear, moment, slope, and displacement diagrams for beams with n redundant supports
  • Mohr's circles can be drawn with one line of code for either stress or strain
  • methods are developed for three-dimensional representation of stress on beam cross-sections
  • All function files available VIA FTP from the MathWorks.

    Format: Paperback
    I find the book very helpful, especially the Matlab code. I am not using the mechanics portion at this time. I would like to see toolboxes on plates of all shapes treating frequency, deflection and stresses for all the usual boundary conditions. - That would be a good sequel to the book.
    I am a mechanical engineer working in the aerospace/defense sector. I recently attended an introductory Matlab class. I really liked Matlab, it is a powerful tool. I was looking for more material to read and books which combine Matlab with mechanical engineering. This book did that very nicely.
