# Schaum’s Outline of Strength of Materials, Fifth Edition

by: William Nash, Merle Potter

**Abstract:**Study faster, learn better, and get top gradesModified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum’s Outline of Strength of Materials complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers extra practice on topics such as determinate force systems, indeterminate force systems, torsion, cantilever beams, statically determinate beams, and statically indeterminate beams. You’ll also get overage of centroid of an area, parallel-axis theorem for moment of inertia of a finite area, radius of gyration, product of inertia of an element of area, principal moments of inertia, and information from statics. Appropriate for the following courses: Strength of Materials; Mechanics of Materials; Introductory Structural Analysis; Mechanics and Strength of Materials Features 618 solved problems, support for all the major textbooks for strength of materials courses. Topics include: Tension and Compression, Statically Indeterminate Force Systems. Tension and Compression, Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels, Direct Shear Stresses, Torsion, Shearing Force and Bending Moment, Centroids, Moments of Inertia, and Products of Inertia of Plane Areas, Stresses in Beams, Elastic Deflection of Beams: Double-Integration Method, Elastic Deflection of Beams: Method of Singularity Functions, Statically Indeterminate Elastic Beams, Special topics in Elastic Beam Theory, Plastic Deformations of Beams, Columns, Strain Energy Methods, Combined Stresses, Members Subject to Combined Loadings; Theories of Failure
