Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews: "In general, the material in this book is presented quite well and can be used as an introductory one-semester course in solid mechanics... It is recommended to people interested in learning the basics of solid mechanics and understanding the interaction of forces on solids. The book is particularly suitable for structural engineers." Appl Mech Rev "The material in this book is presented quite well and can be used as an introductory one-semester course in solid mechanics. ... The solved examples are well chosen and help the student understand the theory and procedure for solving problems given in the exercises. ... The figures in the book are neat and clearly drawn. ... Advanced Mechanics of Solids is recommended to people interested in learning the basics of solid mechanics ... . The book is particularly suitable for structural engineers."
