Problems in Polar Coördinates

  • J. R. Barber
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 172)


Polar coördinates (r, θ) are particularly suited to problems in which the boundaries can be expressed in terms of equations like r = a, θ = α. This includes the stresses in a circular disk or around a circular hole, the curved beam with circular boundaries and the wedge, all of which will be discussed in this and subsequent chapters.
