Strength of Materials and Structures – John Case, Lord Chilver – 4th Edition


need to be familiar with the fundamental principles and concepts in and in order to be able to design structurers to resist failures. For 4 decades, this has provided engineers with these .

Thoroughly updated, the book has been expanded to cover everything on materials and structures that engineering are likely to need. Starting with basic mechanics, the book goes on to cover modern numerical techniques such as matrix and finite element methods. There is also additional material on composite materials, thick shells, flat plates and the vibrations of structures.

Illustrated throughout with worked examples, the book also provides numerous problems for students to attempt. This new edition covers requirements for an engineering undergraduate course on of materials and structures.
