Problems in Strength of Materials focuses on processes and methodologies involved in assessing the strength of materials. The book first discusses tension and compression. Statistically determinate and indeterminate systems; self weight; and calculation of flexible wires and cables are explained. The text also focuses on state of compound stress. Topics include uniaxial and plane states of stress; calculation of thin- and thick-walled vessels; and contact stresses. The shear and torsion of round bars is also considered. The text also takes a look at plane flexure. Calculation of composite beams; second moments of area of plane figures; construction of shear force and bending moment diagrams; and normal and shear stresses accompanying flexure are underscored. The text discusses the determination of deformations accompanying flexure and calculation of statically indeterminate systems. The book also describes combined loading, method of allowable loads, and dynamic and continuous loading. The text is highly recommended for readers interested in the processes and methodologies in determining the strength of materials.
