About this book

Introduction

Strength and Stiffness of Engineering Systems is a modern version of classical strength of materials information adapted to meet the needs of developing technology with its emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches. Subjects such as plasticity, fracture, composite materials, energy approaches and mechanics of micro devices (MEMS) are integrated into a unified text. In this way, the slow build-up of traditional programs is replaced by a consolidated approach which includes the fundamentals needed for understanding and developing modern technology.

Unique features of the book include:

  • Example problems that are presented in a "Given/Required/Solution" format. The "Given/Required" helps bring focus to the problem at hand
  • An Internet site developed and updated in connection with the text that provides summary pages, example problems, interactive practice problems, and calculating tools for shape properties, among other features
  • Comprehensive coverage of topics used in engineering solutions for the stiffness and strength of physical systems, with a range of scales from micrometers to kilometers.

Strength and Stiffness of Engineering Systems is appropriate for both an introductory Strength of Materials course and as a continuing text for both advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. It can also be used as a resource for professional engineers interested in the development of new products.
