Strength of Materials and Structures: An Introduction to the Mechanics of Solids and Structures provides an introduction to the application of basic ideas in solid and structural mechanics to engineering problems. This book begins with a simple discussion of stresses and strains in materials, structural components, and forms they take in tension, compression, and shear. The general properties of stress and strain and its application to a wide range of problems are also described, including shells, beams, and shafts. This text likewise considers an introduction to the important principle of virtual work and its two special forms-leading to strain energy and complementary energy. The last chapters are devoted to buckling, vibrations, and impact stresses. This publication is a good reference for engineering undergraduates who are in their first or second years.14.6 A beam 8 m span is built-in at the ends, and carries a load of 60 kN at the centre, and loads of 30 kN, 2 m from each end. Calculate the ... (Birmingham) 14.8 A continuous girder of uniform section rests on four supports at the same level, forming three equal spans of 35 m. The girder ... Draw to scale the bending moment diagram for the whole girder, and calculate the loads carried by each support.
