Coulomb s Memoir on Statics

Author: Jacques Heyman
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9781783262571
Release Date: 1997-12-18
Genre: Science

Coulomb read his Essai on ‘some statical problems’ to the French Academy in 1773. It is a document of great importance in the history of engineering since it laid the foundations of the modern science of soil mechanics and also discussed three other major problems of eighteenth-century civil engineering: the bending of beams, the fracture of columns and the calculation of abutment thrusts developed by masonry arches. Professor Heyman's book makes the Essai accessible to a wide range of engineers and historians of technology. It is here reproduced in full with an annotated English translation, a chapter elucidating Coulomb's references and with full discussion of the technical problems it treats. It concludes with some brief historical notes on Coulomb's life and technical education in eighteenth-century France. Contents:The ESSAICoulomb's ReferencesThe Strength and Stiffness of BeamsCoulomb's EquationThe Thrust of SoilThe Thrust of ArchesSome Historical Notes Readership: Engineers and researchers in the history of science and engineering.

Mechanics of Composite Materials and Structures

Author: Carlos A. Mota Soares
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0792358708
Release Date: 1999-08-31
Genre: Science

A compact presentation of the foundations, current state of the art, recent developments and research directions of all essential techniques related to the mechanics of composite materials and structures. Special emphasis is placed on classic and recently developed theories of composite laminated beams, plates and shells, micromechanics, impact and damage analysis, mechanics of textile structural composites, high strain rate testing and non-destructive testing of composite materials and structures. Topics of growing importance are addressed, such as: numerical methods and optimisation, identification and damage monitoring. The latest results are presented on the art of modelling smart composites, optimal design with advanced materials, and industrial applications. Each section of the book is written by internationally recognised experts who have dedicated most of their research work to a particular field. Readership: Postgraduate students, researchers and engineers in the field of composites. Undergraduate students will benefit from the treatment of the foundations of the mechanics of composite materials and structures.

Publisher: PHI Learning Pvt. Ltd.
ISBN: 8120326113
Release Date: 2004-01-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Primarily intended for undergraduate students of all engineering disciplines, this comprehensive and up-to-date text strives to meet the long-felt need for a single book that covers Engineering Mechanics as well as Strength of Materials. The text is organized in three parts. Parts I and II provide an easily understandable presentation of the theory along with systematic application of the principles of statics and dynamics to engineering problems. Part III covers the basic topics in strength of materials in a clear, simple, direct fashion that uses an abundance of examples to clarify principles.
