Mechanics of Solids
Mechanics of Solids emphasizes the development of analysis techniques from basic principles for a broad range of practical problems, including simple structures, pressure vessels, beams and shafts. Increased use of personal computers has revolutionized the way in which engineering problems are being solved and this is reflected in the way subjects such as mechanics of solids are taught. A unique feature of this book is the integration of numerical and computer techniques and programs for carrying out analyses, facilitating design, and solving the problems found at the end of each chapter. However, the underlying theory and traditional manual solution methods cannot be ignored and are presented prior to the introduction of computer techniques All programs featured in the book are in FORTRAN 77-the language most widely used by engineers and most portable between computers. All of the programs are suitable for PCs, minicomputers, or mainframes and are available on disk.
Another important feature of this book is its use of both traditional and SI units. Many examples through the text are worked in both sets of units. The data and results for every example are also shown in both types of units.
Mechanics of Solids is intended for use in a first course in mechanics of solids offered to undergraduates. An Instructor's Manual containing solutions to every problem in the book is available.
