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 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.

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.
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.
