Mechanics and Strength of Materials focuses on the methodologies used in studying the strength of materials. The text first discusses kinematics, and then describes the motion of a single particle; description of the motion of a rigid body; plane motion of a rigid body; and examples of the determination of velocities and accelerations in the motion of plane mechanism. The book explains the dynamics of a particle and statics, including the center of mass and gravity of a particle system; law of variation of angular momentum; analytical and graphical methods in the statics of plane systems; and spatial system of forces. The text also discusses the statics of elastic systems, and then describes the strength calculations of beams; problems of simple beam-bending; geometric moments of inertia; buckling problems of axially compressed rods; and simultaneous bending and torsion of rods with circular cross-section. The book focuses on the dynamics of rigid bodies, dynamics in relative motion, and fundamentals of analytical mechanics. The text further looks at vibrations of systems with one degree and many degrees of freedom. The book is a good source of data for readers interested in studying the strength of materials.
