5.0 out of 5 stars Well Thought Out Upgrade from Previous Editions April 17, 2006
By DCop
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars With no Doubt. March 14, 2007
Format:Hardcover
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Standard tools September 28, 2011
Format:Hardcover
A great book I've referred to for decades. The main problem I see in its usage is the neglect of non-linear effects. An unknowledgeable material scientist or engineer calculates a stress or deflection and then thinks it can be applied to failure analysis. The component will take a far greater load before it fails due to the non-linear effects. For example, the initial force to deflect a trampoline 1 inch may be 1 lb, but at 24 inch it is 200 lb (not 24 lb, the linear answer). It's the same with structures when they start deforming.
