About This Book:
The current edition of the book is a completely revised version of the earlier two editions. The second edition provided an opportunity to correct many problems and incorrect answers to many problems. In addition, based on the many suggestions received, a chapter on composite materials was also removed and this addition was well received.

Treatment begins with stress analysis, stress analysis, and stress relations for stress-isotropic solids. These chapters are not generally found in standard books. Chapter 4 is a general departure from older texts dealing with the principles of failure or the Yield Criteria. Thrust treatment has been brought before, because in applying any design equation to robust problems, an understanding of the possible factors for failure, based on physical properties, is highly desirable. Mohr’s theory of failure has been greatly extended due to its practical application. Adrenal modalities are described in Chapter 5, which is one of the important topics and, therefore, is discussed in Ingate detail. Discussion in this chapter is important because of its suitability for a wide variety of problems. The coverage is exhaustive and explains the theorems of Virtual Work, Castigliano, Kirchhoff, Menabria, Engeser, and Maxwell-Mohr integrals. Several worked examples illustrate these theorems.
