Theory of Waves in Materials
by Jeremiah Rushchitsky
Publisher: BookBoon 2011
Number of pages: 270
The book unites the basic theoretical facts from two parts of solid mechanics - mechanics of materials and mechanics of wave processes. It links three important facts from modern mechanics: the basic physical properties of materials; the mathematical models and the corresponding mechanical theories; the characteristic features of propagation of waves.

The application of the principles of mechanics to bulk matter is divided into the mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids. Solid mechanics is concerned with the stressing, deformation and failure of solid materials and structures.

This is a book about the Mechanics of Solids, Statics, the Strength of Materials, and Elasticity Theory. Along the way you will learn about stress, strain, the behavior of trusses, beams, of shafts that carry torsion, even columns that may buckle.

Contents: Introduction; Stress and Strain; Poisson's Ratio and Thermal Expansion; Pressure Vessels and Stress Concentrations; Bolted and Welded Joints; Torsion in Round Shafts; Stresses in Beams; Beam Deflection; Beam Design; Combined Stresses; etc.
