The Strength of Materials: a Treatise on the Theory of Stress Calculations, for Engineers

Article metrics

Abstract

THE book under notice differs somewhat in its purpose from the usual text-books on the subject, in that little space is given to discussion of the physical properties of materials or to experimental work. On this account the author's sub-title, “The Theory of Stress Calculations,”is perhaps more appropriate, expressing more correctly the scope of the work. The sequence adopted for the various branches of the subject is open to criticism, but the theoretical treatments covering a wide range of problems of real importance to the engineer are very complete, except in some of the more advanced portions of the work, as for example in the account given of the torsion of non-circular shafts, where the results of the theory are stated only.
