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 and Strength of Materials

Author: Bogdan Skalmierski
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483102559
Release Date: 2013-10-22
Genre: Technology & Engineering

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.

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.
