Noted for its practical, student-friendly approach to graduate-level mechanics, this volume is considered one of the top referencesafor students or professioalsaon the subject of elasticity and stress in construction. The author presents many examples and applications to review and support several foundational concepts. The more advanced concepts in elasticity and stress are analyzed and introduced gradually, accompanied by even more examples and engineering applications in addition to numerous illustrations.Chapter problems are carefully arranged from the basic to the more challenging. The author covers computer methods, including FEA and computational/equation-solving software, and, in many cases, classical and numerical/computer approaches.A balance is presented between the theory necessary to gain insight into the mechanics and the numerical solutions, both so ... Answers to selected problems are given at the end of the book. ... This convention conforms to that used in most classical mechanics of materials and elasticity texts as well as to that most oftenanbsp;...
