Statique et résistance des niatériaux

Nature volume 114, page 120 (26 July 1924) | Download Citation



THIS book is practically a reproduction of the lectures delivered at the Ecole des Beaux Arts by Prof. Montel on statics and the resistance of materials. The range does not differ essentially from that covered by English text-books, but to those who have a penchant for geometric in preference to analytical proofs, the book is to be recommended. Wherever possible geometrical demonstrations are adopted and numerical calculations effected graphically. A number of useful practical examples are to be found at the end of each chapter.
