MECHANICS OF SOLIDS AND STRUCTURES

The first part of this book deals with fundamental principles of the theoretical analysis of stress and strain, and applies these principles to common engineering problems. The chapter headings of Part 1 are: (1) Statically determinate frames and beams; (2) Statically determinate stress systems; (3) Stress-strain relations; (4) Displacements in statically determinate structures; (5) Statically indeterminate stress systems; (6) bending: stresses; (7) Bending: slope and deflection; (8) Elastic strain energy; (9) Theory of torsion; (10) Statically indeterminate beams and frames; (11) Buckling instability; (12) Stress and strain transformation and relationships; (13) Analysis of variation of stress and strain; (14) Some applications of the equilibrium and strain-displacement relationships; (15) Theories of yielding; (16) Thin plates and shells; (17) Stress concentration; (18) Elementary plastic and viscoelastic analyses. Part 2 deals with mechanical properties and testing of materials, and consists of the following chapters: (19) Tension, compression and torsion; (20) Hardness and other tests; (21) Toughness and unstable fracture; (22) Fatigue; (23) Creep; (24) Non-metallic materials. Part 3 covers some of the most common methods used in experimental analysis of stress and strain, and is presented under the following chapter headings: (25) Resistance strain gauges; (26) Photoelasticity; (27) Other methods of strain measurement. /TRRL/
