Description

Ugural provides a comprehensive and methodical presentation of the basic concepts in the analysis of members subjected to axial loads, torsion, bending, and pressure. The material presented strikes a balance between the theory necessary to gain insight into mechanics and numerical solutions, both of which are useful in performing stress analysis in a realistic setting. Readers will also benefit from the visual interpretation of the basic equations and of the means by which the loads are resisted in typical members.
