The Leading Practical Guide to Stress Analysis–Updated with State-of-the-Art Methods, Applications, and Problems
This widely acclaimed exploration of real-world stress analysis reflects advanced methods and applications used in today's mechanical, civil, marine, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics/science environments. Practical and systematic, Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity, Sixth Edition, has been updated with many new examples, figures, problems, MATLAB solutions, tables, and charts.
The revised edition balances discussions of advanced solid mechanics, elasticity theory, classical analysis, and computer-oriented approaches that facilitate solutions when problems resist conventional analysis. It illustrates applications with case studies, worked examples, and problems drawn from modern applications, preparing readers for both advanced study and practice.
Readers will find updated coverage of analysis and design principles, fatigue criteria, fracture mechanics, compound cylinders, rotating disks, 3-D Mohr's circles, energy and variational methods, buckling of various columns, common shell types, inelastic materials behavior, and more. The text addresses the use of new materials in bridges, buildings, automobiles, submarines, ships, aircraft, and spacecraft. It offers significantly expanded coverage of stress concentration factors and contact stress developments. This book aims to help the reader
