Written by world-renowned authorities on mechanics, this classic ranges from theoretical explanations of 2- and 3-D stress and strain to practical applications such as torsion, bending, and thermal stress. 1961 edition.
Handbook of Mechanical Stability in Engineering (In 3 Volumes) is a systematic presentation of mathematical statements and methods of solution for problems of structural stability. It also presents a connection between the solutions of the problems and the actual design practice.This comprehensive multi-volume set with applications in Applied Mechanics, Structural, Civil and Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics is useful for research engineers and developers of CAD/CAE software who investigate the stability of equilibrium of mechanical systems; practical engineers who use the software tools in their daily work and are interested in knowing more about the theoretical foundations of the strength analysis; and for advanced students and faculty of university departments where strength-related subjects of civil and mechanical engineering are taught.
A crucial element of structural and continuum mechanics, stability theory has limitless applications in civil, mechanical, aerospace, naval and nuclear engineering. This text of unparalleled scope presents a comprehensive exposition of the principles and applications of stability analysis. It has been proven as a text for introductory courses and various advanced courses for graduate students. It is also prized as an exhaustive reference for engineers and researchers. The authors' focus on understanding of the basic principles rather than excessive detailed solutions, and their treatment of each subject proceed from simple examples to general concepts and rigorous formulations. All the results are derived using as simple mathematics as possible. Numerous examples are given and 700 exercise problems help in attaining a firm grasp of this central aspect of solid mechanics. The book is an unabridged republication of the 1991 edition by Oxford University Press and the 2003 edition by Dover, updated with 18 pages of end notes.
Intended for use by advanced engineering students and practicing engineers, this volume focuses on the plastic deformation of metals at normal temperatures, as applied to the strength of machines and structures. It covers problems associated with the special nature of plastic state and important applications of plasticity theory. 1971 edition.
Classic in the field covers application of theory of finite elasticity to solution of boundary-value problems, analysis of mechanical properties of solid materials capable of large elastic deformations. Problems. References.
Outstanding text covers concepts of aerodynamics, elasticity, and mechanical vibrations. It surveys aeroelastic problems, basic physical concepts, principles of analysis, and fundamentals of oscillating airfoil theory. 1955 edition.
Four decades ago, J.P. Den Hartog, then Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wrote Strength of Materials, an elementary text that still enjoys great popularity in engineering schools throughout the world. Widely used as a classroom resource, it has also become a favorite reference and refresher on the subject among engineers everywhere. This is the first paperback edition of an equally successful text by this highly respected engineer and author. Advanced Strength of Materials takes this important subject into areas of greater difficulty, masterfully bridging its elementary aspects and its most formidable advanced reaches. The book reflects Den Hartog's impressive talent for making lively, discursive and often witty presentations of his subject, and his unique ability to combine the scholarly insight of a distinguished scientist with the practical, problem-solving orientation of an experienced industrial engineer. The concepts here explored in depth include torsion, rotating disks, membrane stresses in shells, bending of flat plates, beams on elastic foundation, the two-dimensional theory of elasticity, the energy method and buckling. The presentation is aimed at the student who has a one-semester course in elementary strength of materials. The book includes an especially thorough and valuable section of problems and answers which give both students and professionals practice in techniques and clear illustrations of applications.
