&Quot;The unifying treatment of structural design presented here should prove useful to any engineer involved in the design of structures. A crucial divide to be bridged is that between applied mechanics and materials science. The onset of specialization and the rapid rise of technology, however, have created separate disciplines concerned with the deformation of solid materials. Unfortunately, the result is in many cases that society loses out on having at their service efficient, high-performance material/structural systems.". "We follow in this text a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called total structural design. The idea is to seek a solution in "total design space."". "The material presented in this text is suitable for a first course that encompasses both the traditional mechanics of materials and properties of materials courses. The text is also appropriate for a second course in mechanics of materials or a follow-on course in design of structures, taken after the typical introductory mechanics and properties courses. This text can be adapted to several different curriculum formats, whether traditional or modern. Instructors using the text for a traditional course may find that the text in fact facilitates transforming their course over time to a more modern, integrated approach."--BOOK JACKET.

This book presents both differential equation and integral formulations of boundary value problems for computing the stress and displacement fields of solid bodies at two levels of approximation - isotropic linear theory of elasticity as well as theories of mechanics of materials. Moreover, the book applies these formulations to practical solutions in detailed, easy-to-follow examples. Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity presents modern and classical methods of analysis in current notation and in the context of current practices. The author's well-balanced choice of topics, clear and direct presentation, and emphasis on the integration of sophisticated mathematics with practical examples offer students in civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering an unparalleled guide and reference for courses in advanced mechanics of materials, stress analysis, elasticity, and energy methods in structural analysis.

The desire to understand the mechanics of elastic and plastic solids, new materials and the stability, reliability and dynamic behaviour of structures and their components under extreme environmental conditions has dominated research in structural engineering for many decades. Advances in these areas have revolutionized design methods, codes of practice, and the teaching of structural engineers. In this volume an international body of leading authorities presents some forty papers on current research directions in the specific areas of solid mechanics, structural computation, modern materials and their application, buckling and instability, design of structural systems and components, reliability, seismic analysis, and engineering education. They were presented at a symposium held July 10-12, 1994, at the University of Waterloo, Canada, to honour Professor Archibald Norbert Sherbourne who recently retired from a long and active career of teaching, research and academic administration at this University. The themes of the work contained within this volume reflect Professor Sherbourne's own research interests and will be of interest to both academics and practicing structural engineers.

This book provides a systematic, modern introduction to solid mechanics that is carefully motivated by realistic Engineering applications. Based on 25 years of teaching experience, Raymond Parnes uses a wealth of examples and a rich set of problems to build the reader's understanding of the scientific principles, without requiring 'higher mathematics'. Highlights of the book include The use of modern SI units throughout A thorough presentation of the subject stressing basic unifying concepts Comprehensive coverage, including topics such as the behaviour of materials on a phenomenological level Over 600 problems, many of which are designed for solving with MATLAB, MAPLE or MATHEMATICA. Solid Mechanics in Engineering is designed for 2-semester courses in Solid Mechanics or Strength of Materials taken by students in Mechanical, Civil or Aeronautical Engineering and Materials Science and may also be used for a first-year graduate program.

This is an advanced mechanics of materials textbook dedicated to senior undergraduate or beginning graduate students in mechanical, civil, and aeronautical engineering departments. The text covers subject matter generally referred to as advanced mechanics of materials or advanced strength of materials. The course is commonly called Intermediate/Advanced Strength of Materials, Advanced Mechanics of Materials, or Advanced Mechanics of Solids. This course follows an elementary Solid Mechanics (Vable OUP 2002) course and is taken by most structural engineering majors and aero majors. Unique features of Solecki/Conant include introduction to model topics such as fracture mechanics and viscoelasticity. Unlike the competition, the textbook introduces more applications to contemporary practice, as well as modern computer tools such as MATLAB.

Covers the basic principles of failure of metallic and non-metallic materials in mechanical design applications. Updated to include new developments on fracture mechanics, including both linear-elastic and elastic-plastic mechanics. Contains new material on strain and crack development and behavior. Emphasizes the potential for mechanical failure brought about by the stresses, strains and energy transfers in machine parts that result from the forces, deflections and energy inputs applied.
