It covers problems associated with the special nature of plastic state and important applications of plasticity theory. Additional subjects include beam columns, curved bars and arches, buckling of rings, and experiments and design formulas. This is the first paperback edition of an equally successful text by this highly respected engineer and author. This text of unparalleled scope presents a comprehensive exposition of the principles and applications of stability analysis. 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. 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.

Relevant to aspects of civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering, this classic covers the essentials of static and dynamic instabilities. 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. Numerous examples are given and 700 exercise problems help in attaining a firm grasp of this central aspect of solid mechanics. 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 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. Advanced Strength of Materials takes this important subject into areas of greater difficulty, masterfully bridging its elementary aspects and its most formidable advanced reaches.

Particularly suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of engineering, this volume is also an indispensable reference for professionals. 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. It provides readers with more thorough coverage of the state of theart of unsaturated soil behavior and better reflects the manner inwhich practical unsaturated soil engineering problems are solved. It was co-authored by the father of modern engineering mechanics, Stephen Timoshenko, and James Gere, who updated the materials and worked closely with Dr. Elastic, Inelastic, Fracture and Damage Theories Author: Z.
