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.
Author(s): Prof. Franz-Josef Ulm and Prof.
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.
This book, as its
name suggests, presents those principles of mechanics that are believed
to be essential for the student of engineering.All the
information is there, and is told simple yet completely.
