This book is the first to bridge the often disparate bodies of knowledge now known as applied mechanics and materials science. Using a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called "total structural design", this book seeks a solution in "total design space" Features include: * A generalized design template for solving structural design problems. * Every chapter first introduces mechanics concepts through deformation, equilibrium, and energy considerations. Then the constitutive nature of the chapter topic is presented, followed by a link between mechanics and materials concepts. Details of analysis and materials selection are subsequently discussed. * A concluding example design problem is provided in most chapters, so that students may get a sense of how mechanics and materials come together in the design of a real structure. * Exercises are provided that are germane to aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering applications, and include both deterministic and design-type problems. * Accompanying website contains a wealth of information complementary to this text, including a set of virtual labs. Separate site areas are available for the instructor and students. Combines theories of solid mechanics, materials science and structural design in one coherent text/reference Covers physical scales from the atomistic to continuum mechanics Offers a generalized structural design template

One of the most important subjects for any student of engineering 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. All the essential elements of a treatment of these topics are contained within this course of study, starting with an introduction to the concepts of stress and strain, shear force and bending moments and moving on to the examination of bending, shear and torsion in elements such as beams, cylinders, shells and springs. A simple treatment of complex stress and complex strain leads to a study of the theories of elastic failure and an introduction to the experimental methods of stress and strain analysis. More advanced topics are dealt with in a companion volume - Mechanics of Materials 2. 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. * Emphasis on practical learning and applications, rather than theory * Provides the essential formulae for each individual chapter * Contains numerous worked examples and problems

Variational calculus has been the basis of a variety of powerful methods in the ?eld of mechanics of materials for a long time. Examples range from numerical schemes like the ?nite element method to the determination of effective material properties via homogenization and multiscale approaches. In recent years, however, a broad range of novel applications of variational concepts has been developed. This c- prises the modeling of the evolution of internal variables in inelastic materials as well as the initiation and development of material patterns and microstructures. The IUTAM Symposium on “Variational Concepts with Applications to the - chanics of Materials” took place at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany, on September 22–26, 2008. The symposium was attended by 55 delegates from 10 countries. Altogether 31 lectures were presented. The objective of the symposium was to give an overview of the new dev- opments sketched above, to bring together leading experts in these ?elds, and to provide a forum for discussing recent advances and identifying open problems to work on in the future. The symposium focused on the developmentof new material models as well as the advancement of the corresponding computational techniques. Speci?c emphasis is put on the treatment of materials possessing an inherent - crostructure and thus exhibiting a behavior which fundamentally involves multiple scales. Among the topics addressed at the symposium were: 1. Energy-based modeling of material microstructures via envelopes of n- quasiconvex potentials and applications to plastic behavior and pha- transformations.

A systematic presentation of theory, procedures, illustrative examples, and applications, Mechanics of Materials provides the basis for understanding structural mechanics in engineering systems such as buildings, bridges, vehicles, and machines. The book incorporates the fundamentals of the subject into analytical methods, modeling approaches, numerical methods, experimental procedures, numerical evaluation procedures, and design techniques. It introduces the fundamentals, and then moves on to more advanced concepts and applications. It discusses analytical methods using simple mathematics, examples and experimental techniques, and it includes a large number of worked examples and case studies that illustrate practical and real-world usage. In the beginning of each chapter, states and summarizes the objectives and approaches, and lists the main topics covered in the chapter Presents the key issues and formulas in a "Summary Sheet" at the end of each chapter Provides as appendices at the end of the book, useful reference data and advanced material that cannot be conveniently integrated into the main chapters Mechanics of Materials is a result of the author's experience in teaching an undergraduate course in mechanics of materials consisting of mechanical, manufacturing, materials, mining and mineral engineering students and in teaching other courses in statics, dynamics, modeling, vibration, instrumentation, testing, design, and control. This book is suitable for anyone with a basic engineering background. The practical considerations, design issues, and engineering techniques, and the snapshot-style presentation of advanced theory and concepts, makes this a useful reference for practicing professionals as well.
