Summary: Appropriate for all courses covering strength and elasticity in the context of aeronautical, civil, or mechanical engineering disciplines.

Systematic, comprehensive, and practical, this classic exploration of real-world stress analysis has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest methods and issues. It provides carefully balanced coverage of material mechanics, theory of elasticity methods, and computer-oriented numerical methods, all supported with a more broad range of fully worked illustrative examples, many taken directly from actual engineering practice. Coverage includes: strain and stress-strain relationships; two-dimensional problems in elasticity; material failure criteria; bending of beams; torsion of prismatic bars; axisymmetrically loaded members; beams on elastic foundations; energy methods; elastic stability; plastic behavior of materials; plates and shells; and more. Additions to the Fourth Edition include enhanced coverage of failure criteria; fracture mechanics; compound cylinders; numerical methods; energy and variational methods; buckling of stepped columns; and common shell types. The book also provides an extensive set of sample problems, as well as tables covering software for principle stresses and area properties; beam deflection, material properties, and conversion factors.


  • NEW--Updated to reflect the latest stress analysis techniques and methods--Includes new coverage of failure criteria, fracture mechanics, compound cylinders, numerical methods, energy and variational methods, buckling of stepped columns, and common shell types.
    • Helps students master both traditional and state-of-the-art stress analysis techniques.
  • Extensive set of illustrative examples and real-life problems--Contains a wide range of examples and case studies, many drawn from actual engineering practice, including rational design procedure, buckling, stress concentrations, and strain measurement.
    • Gives students insight into stress analysis in real-world environments, not just theory.
  • Tables covering a wide range of important topics--Presents detailed tables covering software for principal stresses and area properties; beam deflection; material properties; and conversion factors.
    • Provides resources and tools students can use to solve a wide variety of stress analysis problems.
  • State-of-the-art numerical methods--Offers in-depth coverage of numerical methods that lend themselves to computerization.
    • Shows students how to solve problems that resist analytical treatment. less
