An introduction to the fundamental concepts of solid materials and their properties * The primary recommended text of the Council of Engineering Institutions for university undergraduates studying the mechanics of solids * New chapters covering revisionary mathematics, geometrical properties of symmetrical sections, bending stresses in beams, composites and the finite element method * Free electronic resources and web downloads support the material contained within this book Mechanics of Solids provides an introduction to the behaviour of solid materials and their properties, focusing upon the fundamental concepts and principles of statics and stress analysis. Essential reading for first year undergraduates, the mathematics in this book has been kept as straightforward as possible and worked examples are used to reinforce key concepts. Practical stress and strain scenarios are also covered including stress and torsion, elastic failure, buckling, bending, as well as examples of solids such as thinwalled structures, beams, struts and composites. This new edition includes new chapters on revisionary mathematics, geometrical properties of symmetrical sections, bending stresses in beams, composites, the finite element method, and Ross's computer programs for smartphones, tablets and computers.
About Carl Ross
Carl Ross gained his first degree in Naval Architecture, from King's College, Durham University his PhD in Structural Engineering from the Victoria University of Manchester and was awarded his DSc in Ocean Engineering from the CNAA, London. His research in the field of engineering led to advances in the design of submarine pressure hulls. His publications and guest lectures to date exceed some 290 papers and books, etc., and he was Professor of Structural Dynamics at the University of Portsmouth, UK. John Bird is the former Head of Applied Electronics in the Faculty of Technology at Highbury College, Portsmouth, UK. More recently, he has combined freelance lecturing and examining. He is the author of over 125 textbooks on engineering and mathematical subjects with worldwide sales of one million copies. He is currently lecturing at the Defence School of Marine Engineering in the Defence College of Technical Training at H.M.S. Sultan, Gosport, Hampshire, UK. Andrew Little worked for several years as a Stress Engineer for RollsRoyce and then companies such as Ferranti Computer Systems where his specialism was the design of equipment for high stress and vibration environments. He came to the University of Portsmouth where he became involved with pressure vessel research and completed his PhD whilst lecturing fulltime. He is a chartered engineer, a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering Designers and has published 75 academic papers.Details Book

Margo Anderson Get eBook Mechanics of Solids
Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these I can get now!

Lisa Doran Best website free download ebook
I was suspicious at first when i got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited i found this online library....many thanks Kisses

Markus Jensen How to download Mechanics of Solids eBook?
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
