Mechanics of Materials by Sanjeev Khanna

Book Description

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; and, 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. This work combines theories of solid mechanics, materials science and structural design in one coherent text/reference. It covers physical scales from the atomistic to continuum mechanics. It offers a generalized structural design template.
