Mechanics of Materials 2 – E. J. Hearn – 3rd Edition


One of the most important subjects for any engineering or mastering is the behavior of and structures under load. 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.

Building on the laid out in the introductory volume Mechanics of 1, this expands the scope of the covered material in more complex areas, such as asymmetric bending, loading and deflection of struts, rings, discs, cylinder plates, diaphragms and thin walled sections. There is a new treatment of the finite element method, and more advanced topics such as contact and residual stress, concentrations, fatigue, creep, and are also covered.

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 the principles are expanded. In addition, each chapter concludes with a wide selection of problems for the to solve.
