The application of basic principles in the simple and logical solution of engineering problems is the main subject of the strength course. Plenty of sample solutions are included to help you understand the principles. The answers to the odd-numbered problems are at the end of the book. In this book, which was published in the fifth edition; strain, torsion, bending, composite beams, stress and strain transformations are explained. Inclination and deflection calculation methods, stress concentration and buckling are covered. An introduction is made to the Finite Element Method, which is widely used today in stress analysis.
