Use in Industry of Elasticity Measurements in Metals with the Help of Mechanical Vibrations Excerpt :
This work is centred on elasticity in the broadest sense of the word. What happens when one gives a simple rubber band to an architect, historian, choreographer, chemist, artist, mathematician, physicist, economist, anthropologist, and geologist and asks each of them for a statement on elasticity?
For aeronautical, civil, and mechanical engineers. State-of-the-art and practical in perspective, this classic exploration of stress analysis focuses on techniques for analysis in realistic settings. Unusually comprehensive, it provides uniquely balanced coverage of mechanics of materials, theory of elasticity methods, and computer-oriented numerical methods all supported with a broad range of fully worked-out examples. The Fourth Edition adds/expands coverage of mechanics of materials theory; three-dimensional stress and strain transformations; strain energy in common structural members; stress concentration in typical members; elastic-plastic analysis of thick-walled cylinders; application of strain energy and variational methods to beams on elastic foundations, buckling of columns, and plates; a complete new set of illustrative examples and problems many taken from engineering practice; and tables covering computer programs for principal stresses and area properties, deflection of beams, material properties, and conversion factors.
This book examines in detail the Theory of Elasticity which is a branch of the mechanics of a deformable solid. Special emphasis is placed on the investigation of the process of deformation within the framework of the generally accepted model of a medium which, in this case, is an elastic body. A comprehensive list of Appendices is included providing a wealth of references for more in depth coverage. The work will provide both a stimulus for future research in this field as well as useful reference material for many years to come.
