Strength of Materials
10111191010403Strength of MaterialsThis chapter reviews concepts of strength of materials (also known as mechanics of materials). The methods to calculate stresses and strains for various types of loading are a necessary precursor to the process of structural design, wherein those calculated maximum stresses are checked against allowable stresses (allowable stress design). External loads imposed on structures produce internal loads such as axial force (normal to cross section), transverse shear force (in the plane of the cross section), bending moment (about major and minor in-plane axes), and torsion (moment about the axis normal to the cross section). The externally imposed loads and the internal loads a…
