This
systematic exploration of real-world stress analysis has been
completely revised and updated to reflect state-of-the-art methods and
applications now in use throughout the fields of aeronautical, civil,
and mechanical engineering and engineering mechanics. Distinguished by
its exceptional visual interpretations of the solutions, it offers an
in-depth coverage of the subjects for students and practicing engineers.
The authors carefully balance comprehensive treatments of solid
mechanics, elasticity, and computer-oriented numerical methods. In
addition, a wide range of fully worked illustrative examples and an
extensive problem sets–many taken directly from engineering
practice–have been incorporated.

Key
additions to the Fourth Edition of this highly acclaimed textbook are
materials dealing with failure theories, fracture mechanics, compound
cylinders, numerical approaches, energy and variational methods,
buckling of stepped columns, common shell types, and more. Contents
include stress, strain and stress-strain relations, problems in
elasticity, static and dynamic failure criteria, bending of beams and
torsion of bars, finite difference and finite element methods,
axisymmetrically loaded members, beams on elastic foundations, energy
methods, elastic stability, plastic behavior of materials, stresses in
plates and shells, and selected references to expose readers to the
latest information in the field.
