Principles of Solid Mechanics by Rowland Richards
This book has evolved from over 30 years of teaching advanced seniors and rst-term graduate students a core course on the application of the full-range eld theory of deformable solids for analysis and design.
Unlike other texts, it is not either a civil or mechanical engineering text, but both. It treats not only analysis but incorporates design along with experimental observation.
It is presented to help teachers meet the challenges of leading students in their exciting discovery of the unifying eld theories of elasticity and plasticity in a new era of powerful machine computation for students with little experimental experience and no exposure to drawing and graphic analysis.
the text presents carefully selected worked examples, The author makes liberal use of footnotes and includes over 150 figures and 200 problems, This, along with his approach, allows students to see the full range, non-linear response of structures.
The intention is to concentrate on fundamental concepts, basic applications, simple problems yet unsolved, inverse strategies for optimum design, unanswered questions.
In its evolution this book has, therefore, become quite dierent from other texts covering essentially the same subject matter at this level.2 First, by including plastic as well as elastic behavior in terms of a unied theory, this text is wider in scope and more diverse in concepts.
The author focuses on basic concepts and applications, simple yet unsolved problems, inverse strategies for optimum design, unanswered questions, and unresolved paradoxes to intrigue students and encourage further study
I have found that students like to see the full range, nonlinear response of structures and more fully appreciate the importance of their work when they realize that incompetence can lead to sudden.
