This treatise contains topics on Solid Mechanics, the Theory of Slender Members and an Introduction to the Theory of Structures, usually taught in the disciplines of Strength of Materials of most Engineering courses, such as Civil, Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering.
In relation to the most widely known treatises on Mechanics and Strength of Materials, a greater scientific exactness and an extra emphasis on the theoretical justification of the topics explained may be stressed. Axioms and non-demonstrated simplifying hypotheses, which are common in this kind of book, are avoided. The depth of the explanation is at an intermediate level between those works and treatises based on a mathematical approach to the Theory of Elasticity and Continuum Mechanics. However, the topics are always introduced from a physical point of view, which is fundamental for an Engineer, and are anchored on over 300 figures of high graphical quality.Review:
From the reviews:
"The book is divided in two parts: part 1 treats mechanics of materials based on continuum mechanics principles, and part 2 discusses the fundamental behavior of the strength of materials. … This book is quite concise in providing all necessary theory … . it is a fine book for university libraries to acquire as a resource." (S. C. Anand, Choice, Vol. 43 (10), 2006)
"The first edition of this textbook was written in Portuguese (1995). … All chapters enclose examples and exercises. The book gives an interesting introduction on topics of solid mechanics, the theory of slender members, and the theory of structures on an accurate level. It can be recommended to engineering students who are looking for a text book on a higher theoretical level as usually." (Johannes Altenbach, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 87 (1), 2007)
