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.
This book is the result of the
experience of the writer in teaching the subject of Applied Mechanics at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is primarily a text-book ; and
hence the writer has endeavored to present the different subjects in such a
way as seemed to him best for the progress of the class, even though it be
at some sacrifice of a logical order of topics.
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.
note covers the following topics: Matrix Algebra and Indicial Notation, Vectors and Linear Transformations,
Components of Tensors. Cartesian Tensors, Symmetry: Groups of Linear
Transformations, Calculus of Vector and Tensor Fields, Orthogonal Curvilinear
Coordinates, Calculus of Variations.
This note covers the following topics: Numerical Methods, Conic
Sections, Plane and Spherical Trigonomtry, Coordinate Geometry in Three
Dimensions, Gravitational Field and Potential, Celestial Mechanics, Planetary
Motions, Computation of an Ephemeris, Photographic Astrometry, Calculation of
Orbital Elements, General Perturbation Theory, Visual Binary Stars and
Spectroscopic Binary Stars.
