Problems in Strength of Materials is a translation from the Russian and presents problems concerning determining and calculating the strength of materials.
This book presents the properties of materials that have to do with strength through problem solving. This book give several examples of tension and compression problems, such as those concerning statically determinate and indertiminate systems, self-weight, and calculation for flexible wires or cables. The text cites problems with uniaxial and plane states of stress; and suggests solutions to questions, for example, by using the formula for determining the maximum strains of an element in three dimensional state of stress. This book also explains how to determine acceptable stress forming on thin-walled or thick-walled containers. Other examples concern problems of shear and torsion, plane flexure, and the analytical methods to determine deformations in steel bars, as well as the graphical and semi-graphical methods of finding the values of deflections. This book also explains how to find the solution of problems on inertia forces, oscillations, resonance, and the stresses and deformations that result upon impact of a certain load.
This book can be used as reference for students pursuing Higher National Diploma and Certificate, and for students of engineering.
