  • Provides a new toolbox designed for statics and strength of materials. These toolboxes include routines that will solve a number of problems.
  • truss problems
  • shape properties such as Ix, Iy, centroid location, area, and more
  • will draw shear, moment, slope, and displacement diagrams for beams with n redundant supports
  • Mohr's circles can be drawn with one line of code for either stress or strain
  • methods are developed for three-dimensional representation of stress on beam cross-sections
  • All function files available VIA FTP from the MathWorks.

Editorial Reviews

This guide to the most common statics and strength of materials problems shows by example how to create function files to solve generic problems. Problems include rigid body equilibrium, geometry, shear stresses and strains, Mohr's circle, numerous types of loading, and beams. The book can be used as a review or supplemental text and requires only a passing familiarity with MATLAB. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
