The Ultimate Roark's now includes--

With each succeeding edition, this renowned reference has proven itself as the be-all, end-all resource for designers, engineers, and analysts working with calculations of loads and stress. The Seventh Edition is no exception, as it carries on the book's tradition of presenting equations and diagrams of structural properties all in an easy-to-use, thumb-through format. Offering readability, the latest edition of Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain is truly the best Roark's yet, and the one reference that you'll turn to most, project after project, year after year.

I have three editions of this book: the classic 4th edition, the useless 5th edition and this, the 7th edition.

The 4th edition has simple format, is easy to use, but lacks methods for more sophisticated hand analyses and is sparse on explanations. The 5th is best used for a doorstop.

This edition is an excellent combination of the usefullness of the 4th edition with modern and more advanced methods.

The layout of each section has excellent explanatory material and provides the simple 4th edition type equations backed with more involved/advanced formulas which are very useful.

My hat is off to the authors. This is probably the best reference for those nasty stress and deflection hand calculations we all have to do from time to time.

THIS IS NOT A REVIEW ON THIS BOOK --- THIS IS A COMMENT FOR MARKETPLACE SELLERS FOR THIS BOOK AND ALL ENGINEERING BOOKS --- YOU NEED TO LIST WHICH EDITION YOU ARE SELLING, AS THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE BUYERS TO KNOW! DIFFERENT EDITIONS CAN BE IN DIFFERENT UNIT SYSTEMS, AND MOST PEOPLE ONLY WANT TO HAVE A PARTICULAR EDITION (FIRST, LATEST, ETC)! --- THANKS!

During my years as Structural Calculyst this book was always on my right side on my desk, and when I needed it, it was ready to help me find my way. One really very good Engineer has never found all formulas in his head, instead he should be able of finding them out on good references and really know how to use
them all. This is the best reference book you are going to find when formulas is your subject, just buy it!
The only book I know better than this one is written in German and few people are able to read in German, so!

Roark's has been and remains an excellent resource for the structural engineer and designer regardless of the edition. This is a referance I use on a daily basis. Typically the first book I reach for.

The content of Roark's Formulas is very handy for a desk reference type book and is referred to in many other works like Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers and Design of Weldments and Design of Welded Structures by Omer Blodgett.

My copy of the 7th edition looks like the pages were crooked when they were cut to size. The text on left hand pages is tilted to the top left and the right pages are tilted to the top right. Most likely when the stack of printed material was in the size cutter it wasn't squared properly because every page is turned the exact same amount. It doesn't affect the readability of anything it just looks odd because you almost think you're holding the book crooked sine the text isn't parallel to the top and bottom edges.

The paper isn't the slick, durable type used in McGraw Hill's other reference books like Marks' Std Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, so combined with the crooked page trim I would rate the physical appearance sub-par. I expect better from a professional level book from McGraw Hill.

I should have most of this book memorized by now since I've relied on it for so many years. I highly recommend this text.
