applied strength of materials sixth edition pdf
In addition to many fully solved example problems, there is an extensive set of problems for student practice at the end of each chapter. Answers for the odd-numbered problems are listed in the back of the text. The problems are typically organized around the main topics in the chapter. In general, they are presented in a graded manner with simpler problems followed by more comprehensive problems. There are many additional problems at the end of most chapters for practice, review, and design. All problems are stated either in pure U.S. Customary units or pure SI metric units, including the types and sizes of structural members, listed in the appendix.
To complement the use of design approaches, the appendix provides additional information on material properties, geometry of common areas and commercially available structural shapes, stress concentration factors, formulas for beam deflection, conversion factors, and many others. This allows for a wider variety of problems in the book and for creating tests and projects. It adds to the realism of the book and gives the students practice in looking for the necessary information to solve a problem or to complete a design.
This edition includes a significant amount of additional appendix data in SI metric
units. All commercially available section property data for structural shapes include separate tables of SI data in addition to the formerly included U.S. Customary unit data. The SI
data tables and the U.S. data tables are coordinated so students and instructors can quickly
compare the designations and specific data from the two systems. Problems stated in SI
metric data should be solved using the SI property data; instructors can develop their own
quiz and exam problems completely in the SI system.
Twelve entirely new tables have been added to the appendix on property data for
wood boards, angles, channels, I shapes, hollow square and rectangular tubing, and steel
mechanical tubing to supplement, and in some cases replace, those included in the previous
edition. This offers designers of mechanical devices or manufacturing applications a wider
variety of sizes of structural shapes, particularly for pure SI sizes and for the smaller part
of the size spectrum.
