Summary: This book provides a broad and comprehensive coverage of the theoretical, experimental, and numerical techniques employed in the field of stress analysis. Designed to provide a clear transition from the topics of elementary to advanced mechanics of materials. Its broad range of coverage allows instructors to easily select many different topics for use in one or more courses. The highly readable writing style and mathematical clarity of the first edition are continued more in this edition. Major revisions in this edition include: an expanded coverage of three-dimensional stress/strain transformations; additional topics from the theory of elasticity; examples and problems which test the mastery of the prerequisite elementary topics; clarified and additional topics from advanced mechanics of materials; new sections on fracture mechanics and structural stability; a completely rewritten chapter on the finite element method; a new chapter on finite element modeling techniques employed in practice when using commercial FEM software; and a significant increase in the number of end of chapter exercise problems some of which are oriented towards computer applications.

Completely revised finite element methods (FEM) chapter (Ch9) with improved notation and many new topics. Some examples include skew supports, distributed and thermal loading, hinges, the frame element in 2- and 3-D space, and load-stiffening and buckling of beams.

All new chapter on FEM modeling techniques which introduces students to the procedures used in applying commercial FEM software packages (Ch 10).

Major revision of advanced mechanics of materials topics such as unsymmetrical beams, single- and multi-celled thin-walled tubes in torsion, shear center, curved beams, plates, and contact stresses (Ch 5). A more complete review of the basic concepts of the mechanics of deformable solids (Chs 1-3).

New sections on fracture mechanics and structural stability.

Significant increase in the number of end-of-chapter problems which include computer applications.

Emphasizes physical understanding with more complete developments and mathematical clarity of the underlying theory.

Comprehensive coverage including experimental and numerical methods.

Numerous example problems. less
