Book Description:

Strength of Materials, Part 1, Elementary theory and problems

book has a considerable number of new problems were

added and answers to many of the old problems

inserted. Strength of Materials by Stephen

Timoshenko book was expanded by the addition of two new

chapters, namely Chapter VIII which deals with bending of

beams in a plane which is not a plane of symmetry and Chapter

XII on the bending of curved bars. In Chapter VIII the notion

of shear center which is of great practical importance in the

case of thin walled structures is introduced. In Chapter XII

is presented the material on curved bars which previously

appeared in the second volume of this book. It is hoped with

these major changes as well as the innumerable minor changes

throughout the entire book that the volume will be not only

more complete but also more satisfactory as a textbook in

elementary courses in strength of materials.
