Advanced Strength and Applied Stress Analysis books
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 in this edition.
• Completely revised finite element methods (FEM) chapter 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.
• 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.
• New sections on fracture mechanics and structural stability.
• Significant increase in the number of end-of-chapter problems which include computer applications.
