&Quot;The unifying treatment of structural design presented here should prove useful to any engineer involved in the design of structures. A crucial divide to be bridged is that between applied mechanics and materials science. The onset of specialization and the rapid rise of technology, however, have created separate disciplines concerned with the deformation of solid materials. Unfortunately, the result is in many cases that society loses out on having at their service efficient, high-performance material/structural systems.". "We follow in this text a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called total structural design. The idea is to seek a solution in "total design space."". "The material presented in this text is suitable for a first course that encompasses both the traditional mechanics of materials and properties of materials courses. The text is also appropriate for a second course in mechanics of materials or a follow-on course in design of structures, taken after the typical introductory mechanics and properties courses. This text can be adapted to several different curriculum formats, whether traditional or modern. Instructors using the text for a traditional course may find that the text in fact facilitates transforming their course over time to a more modern, integrated approach."--BOOK JACKET.

One of the most important subjects for any student of engineering or materials to master is the behaviour of materials and structures under load. The way in which they react to applied forces, the deflections resulting and the stresses and strains set up in the bodies concerned are all vital considerations when designing a mechanical component such that it will not fail under predicted load during its service lifetime. Building upon the fundamentals established in the introductory volume Mechanics of Materials 1, this book extends the scope of material covered into more complex areas such as unsymmetrical bending, loading and deflection of struts, rings, discs, cylinders plates, diaphragms and thin walled sections. There is a new treatment of the Finite Element Method of analysis, and more advanced topics such as contact and residual stresses, stress concentrations, fatigue, creep and fracture are also covered. Each chapter contains a summary of the essential formulae which are developed in the chapter, and a large number of worked examples which progress in level of difficulty as the principles are enlarged upon. In addition, each chapter concludes with an extensive selection of problems for solution by the student, mostly examination questions from professional and academic bodies, which are graded according to difficulty and furnished with answers at the end.

An area at the intersection of solid mechanics, materials science, and stochastic mathematics, mechanics of materials often necessitates a stochastic approach to grasp the effects of spatial randomness. Using this approach, Microstructural Randomness and Scaling in Mechanics of Materials explores numerous stochastic models and methods used in the mechanics of random media and illustrates these in a variety of applications. The book first offers a refresher in several tools used in stochastic mechanics, followed by two chapters that outline periodic and disordered planar lattice (spring) networks. Subsequent chapters discuss stress invariance in classical planar and micropolar elasticity and cover several topics not yet collected in book form, including the passage of a microstructure to an effective micropolar continuum. After forming this foundation in various methods of stochastic mechanics, the book focuses on problems of microstructural randomness and scaling. It examines both representative and statistical volume elements (RVEs/SVEs) as well as micromechanically based stochastic finite elements (SFEs). The author also studies nonlinear elastic and inelastic materials, the stochastic formulation of thermomechanics with internal variables, and wave propagation in random media. The concepts discussed in this comprehensive book can be applied to many situations, from micro and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) to geophysics.

The disturbed state concept (DSC) is a unified, constitutive modelling approach for engineering materials that allows for elastic, plastic, and creep strains, microcracking and fracturing, stiffening or healing, all within a single, hierarchical framework. Its capabilities go well beyond other available material models yet lead to significant simplifications for practical applications. Until now, however, there has been no resource that fully describes the theory, techniques, and potential of this powerful method. Mechanics of Materials and Interfaces: Disturbed State Concept presents a detailed theoretical treatment of the DSC and shows that it can provide a unified and simplified approach for mathematical characterization of the mechanical response of materials and interfaces. Within this comprehensive treatment, the author: Compares the DSC with other available models Identifies the physical meaning of the relevant parameters and presents procedures to determine them from laboratory test data Validates the DSC models with respect to laboratory tests used to find the parameters and independent tests not used in the calibration Implements the models in computer procedures Validates those procedures by comparing predictions with observations from simulated and field boundary value problems Solves problems from a variety of disciplines, including civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering If you are involved in the mechanics of materials, you owe it to yourself to explore the disturbed state concept. Mechanics of Materials and Interfaces provides the first-and to date, the only-comprehensive means of doing so.

In the dynamic digital age, the widespread use of computers has transformed engineering and science. A realistic and successful solution of an engineering problem usually begins with an accurate physical model of the problem and a proper understanding of the assumptions employed. With computers and appropriate software we can model and analyze complex physical systems and problems. However, efficient and accurate use of numerical results obtained from computer programs requires considerable background and advanced working knowledge to avoid blunders and the blind acceptance of computer results. This book provides the background and knowledge necessary to avoid these pitfalls, especially the most commonly used numerical methods employed in the solution of physical problems. It offers an in-depth presentation of the numerical methods for scales from nano to macro in nine self-contained chapters with extensive problems and up-to-date references, covering: Trends and new developments in simulation and computation Weighted residuals methods Finite difference methods Finite element methods Finite strip/layer/prism methods Boundary element methods Meshless methods Molecular dynamics Multiphysics problems Multiscale methods
