Strength of Materials focuses on the resistance or strength of materials, which is described as the study of solid bodies under the action of external forces under working conditions, and of their resistance to deformation and failure. This book discusses problems on the equilibrium and stability of simple structural elements under elastic and elastic-plastic deformation, including the plastic flow of materials under pressure; creep and dynamic resistance of materials; vibrations and propagation of elastic and plastic waves; and effect of temperature, rate of deformation, and radiation on the strength and plasticity of materials. A description of the experimental techniques used in investigating the mechanical properties of materials is also outlined in this text. This publication is a good material in training research specialists in universities and technical institutes regarding the mechanics of solid deformable bodies.
