9780123838520: Mechanics of Materials: A Modern Integration of Mechanics and Materials in Structural Design

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

Book Description:

The first book to provide a unifying pedagogic treatment that bridges the art and science of structural design.

From the Back Cover:

This text is concerned with two interconnected activities:
· Providing a sound foundation in teaching the art and science of structural design
· Bridging the divide between applied mechanics and materials science

The unifying treatment of structural design presented here should prove useful to any engineer involved in the design of structures. A crucial divide to be bridged is that between applied mechanics and materials science. The onset of specialization and the rapid rise of technology, however, have created separate disciplines concerned with the deformation of solid materials. Unfortunately, the result is in many cases that society loses out on having at their service efficient, high-performance material/structural systems.

We follow in this text a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called total structural design. The idea is to seek a solution in "total design space.” Features of the text 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.
·The book web site at www.books.elsevier.com has a wealth of information complementary to this text, including a set of virtual labs. Separate site areas are available for the instructor and students.

The material presented in this text is suitable for a first course that encompasses both the traditional mechanics of materials and properties of materials courses. The text is also keyed to allow its use in a more traditional "mechanics of materials” course. We use the icons ?": to indicate chapter sections that are mostly oriented to mechanics (?), materials ("), or design (:), or some combination of these areas. The text is also appropriate for a second course in mechanics of materials or a follow-on course in design of structures, taken after the typical introductory mechanics and properties courses. This text can be adapted to several different curriculum formats, whether traditional or modern. Instructors using the text for a traditional course may find that the text in fact facilitates transforming their course over time to a more modern, integrated approach.
