note provides an introduction to the mechanics of solids with
applications to science and engineering. Itemphasize the three essential
features of all mechanics analyses, namely: (a) the geometry of the
motion and/or deformation of the structure, and conditions of geometric
fit, (b) the forces on and within structures and assemblages; and (c)
the physical aspects of the structural system which quantify relations
between the forces and motions/deformation.

This note provides an introduction to the mechanics of
materials and structures. You will be introduced to and become familiar
with all relevant physical properties and fundamental laws governing the
behavior of materials and structures and you will learn how to solve a
variety of problems of interest to civil and environmental engineers.
Topics covered includes: Galileo's problem, Dimensional analysis and
atomic explosion, Newton's laws of motion, Continuum model, Beam stress
model, Beam deformation, Beam elasticity and Fracture mechanics.

This note explores the
nature of rocks and rock masses as construction, foundation, or
engineering materials. Topics covered include: Physical properties of
intact rocks, stresses and strains, thermal, hydraulic and mechanical
properties of rocks and rock masses, applications of theory of
elasticity in rock mechanics, visco-elasticity, rock discontinuities,
hemispherical projection methods, in situ stresses and stress
measurements, rock slope engineering and underground excavations in
describes and predicts the conditions of rest or motion of bodies under the action of forces. Engineering
mechanics applies the principle of mechanics to design, taking into
account the effects of forces. This book covers the following topics:
Concurrent forces on a plane, Composition and Resolution of forces,
Method of moments, Friction, Ladder and rope friction, Principle of
virtual work, Rectilinear Translation, Principle of Dynamics,
DíAlembertís Principle, Motion of a Projectile, Rotation of rigid body.
covers the following topics: Elemantary Principles, Lagrange's
Equations, Hamilton's Principle, Central Force - Kepler Problem, Rigid
Body Motion and Kinematics, Oscillations, Special Relativity,
Hamiltonian Equations, Canonical Transformations, Continuous Systems and
Fields, Relativistic Field Theory.
book covers the following topics: Fundamentals of Mechanics, Newton
Analyzed Planetary Motion, Systems of Particles, Conservation Laws,
Rigid Bodies, Constraints, Holonomic and Non-Holonomic Constraints,
Statically Indeterminate Structures.
There is a strong
emphasis of classical mechanics with closeness to physics and
engineering. Among the topics explored: linear and nonlinear
oscillators; quasi-periodic and multiperiodic motions; systems with
constraints; Hamilton-Jacobi theory; integrable systems; stability
problems of dissipative and conservative systems. Numerous exercises
accompany the text, but the author assumes a knowledge of calculus.
This note covers the following topics: Acceleration, Angular Momentum, Conservation of Energy, Frames of Reference,
Friction, Forces, Gravitation, Linear Inertia, Mechanical Advantage, Linear
Momentum, Motion in One Dimension, Physical Measurements, Projectiles,
Rotational Dynamics, Rotational Inertia, Statics and Mechanical Equilibrium,
