Overview

Updated and reorganized, each of the topics is thoroughly developed from fundamental principles. The assumptions, applicability and limitations of the methods are cleary discussed. Includes such advanced subjects as plasticity, creep, fracture, mechanics, flat plates, high cycle fatigue, contact stresses and finite elements. Due to the widespread use of the metric system, SI units are used throughout. Contains a generous selection of illustrative examples and problems.

Editorial Reviews

This substantially revised and expanded text-reference was last published in 1985. As in previous editions, the blend of analysis, qualified approximations, and judgments based on practical experience is maintained. The topics are divided into three major parts--fundamental concepts, classical topics in advanced mechanics, and selected advanced topics--and each topic is developed from basic principles so that the applicability and limitations of the methods employed are clear.
