CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Structural Mechanics, first published in 1958, has become established as a
classic text on the theory of structures and design methods of structural
members. The book clearly and logically presents the subject's basic
principles, keeping the mathematical content to its essential minimum. The
seventh edition has been revised to provide up-to-date design guidance,
principles in line with the current British Standards and Eurocodes. The
original simplicity of the mathematical treatment has been maintained, while
more emphasis on the relevance of structural mechanics to the process of
structural design, analysis, materials, loads on building and structures
according to the current British Standard and European Code of Practice. The
initial chapters of the book deal with the concept of loads and their effects
on structural materials and elements in terms of stress and strain. The
significance of the shape of the cross-section of structural elements is then
considered before the book finishes with the design of simple structural
elements such as beams, columns, rafters, portal frames, dome frames and
gravity retaining walls.
