Description

Theory of Beams: The Application of the Laplace Transformation Method to Engineering Problems, Second Enlarged Edition emphasizes the method used than the broad coverage of all the significant cases that may be met in engineering practice. The content of this edition is mostly the topics presented in the first edition, but are roughly doubled. This edition is divided into four chapters, wherein most of the modifications made are included in the fourth chapter. The first chapter provides an introduction of the study, followed by discussions on theory of beams. Then, specific topics on the transform of the load function; beams with transverse and axial loading; beams and free beam on elastic foundations and non-homogeneous elastic foundations; and simple beam with terminal forces and couples resting on an elastic foundation are examined. This book ends with a table presenting transforms and functions. This text will be of interest to mathematicians and engineers, as well as mathematics and engineering students.
