From the Back Cover
Your ticket to excelling in mechanics of materials
Mechanics of Materials For Dummies gives you plain–English explanations of all the topics you′ll encounter in a typical undergraduate course, including principles of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and material behavior; stress and its relation to force and movement; strain and its relation to displacement; and methods for calculating deformations and indeterminate systems.
Brush up on basics get a quick refresher on math and units, a brief review of essential statics topics, and an easy–to–follow introduction to mechanics of materials
Sharpen your skills find out which skills you need to master, including section property calculations, internal force diagrams, and how to locate the centroid of an area
Stop stressing get the 411 on the basic types of stress, grasp the difference between average stress and stress at a point, and learn to transform stresses to find principal values and angles
Strain for more discover how objects deform in response to strain, how you compute maximum and minimum strain values, and how to determine strain orientation within an object
Compute displacements explore different ways to compute deformations of objects under loads for both statically determinate and indeterminate systems
Open the book and find:
How to use mechanics to understand material behavior
Methods for calculating stresses and strains
Basic torsion theory
How to calculate deformations, displacements, and angles of twist
How to solve indeterminate systems and composite materials problems
Mohr′s circle for transformations
Hooke′s law for stress and strain
