Treats topics by extending concepts and procedures a step or two beyond elementary mechanics of materials and emphasizes the physical view -- mathematical complexity is not used where it is not needed. KEY TOPICS: Includes new coverage of symmetry considerations, rectangular plates in bending, plastic action in plates, and critical speed of rotating shafts. Expands the coverage of fatigue, the reciprocal theorem, semi-inverse problems in elasticity, thermal stress, and buckling.
