Mechanics of Solids – Carl T. F. Ross – 1st Edition


This text of Carl T. F. Ross, is the primary recommendation of the UK Council Faculty of to all British universities as of approved standard and quality for use as a text for the Board’s own examinations. It introduces the and principle of statics and stress as the essential reading for first year students.

Worked examples from the authors experience reinforce comprehension of key concepts. Tutorial solutions with explanation in extended detail have been provided for students. Key elements include: use of -body diagrams to help problem solving; coverage of composite materials; torsion of circular and non-circular sections; and the -displacement method.
