Strength of Materials for Technicians covers basic concepts and principles and theoretical explanations about strength of materials, together with a number of worked examples on the application of the different principles. The book discusses simple trusses, simple stress and strain, temperature, bending, and shear stresses, as well as thin-walled pressure vessels and thin rotating cylinders. The text also describes other stress and strain contributors such as torsion of circular shafts, close-coiled helical springs, shear force and bending moment, strain energy due to direct stresses, and second moment of area. Testing of materials by tests of tension, compression, shear, cold bend, hardness, impact, and stress concentration and fatigue is also tackled. Students taking courses in strength of materials and engineering and civil engineers will find the book invaluable.Hence the bending moment at any section of a beam is equal to the algebraic sum of all the externally applied moments and the areas of the shear force diagram to one side of the section. The following steps will be followed to draw the shearanbsp;...
