How they react to applied forces, the resulting deviations, and the stresses and strains set in the bodies in question are vital considerations when designing a mechanical component so that it does not fail under the expected load during its useful life.
All the essential elements of a treatment of these topics are contained in this course of study, beginning with an introduction to the concepts of stress and tension, shear force and bending moments and moving on to the examination of bending, shear and torsion in such elements. such as beams, cylinders, shells, and springs. A simple treatment of complex stress and complex stress leads to a study of elastic failure theories and an introduction to experimental methods of stress and tension analysis.
The more advanced topics are covered in a companion volume: Mechanics of Materials 2. Each chapter contains a summary of the essential formulas that are developed in the chapter, and a host of worked examples that progress through the difficulty level as you progress. expand the principles. on. In addition, each chapter concludes with a wide selection of problems for the student to solve, mainly exam questions from professional and academic bodies, which are classified according to difficulty and answers are provided at the end.
