Description

Product Description

This book covers the essential elements of engineering mechanics of deformable bodies, including mechanical elements in tension-compression, torsion, and bending. It emphasizes a fundamental bottom up approach to the subject in a concise and uncluttered presentation. Of special interest are
chapters dealing with potential energy as well as principle of virtual work methods for both exact and approximate solutions. The book places an emphasis on the underlying assumptions of the theories in order to encourage the reader to think more deeply about the subject matter. The book should be
of special interest to undergraduate students looking for a streamlined presentation as well as those returning to the subject for a second time.

Review


"Running counter to the trend in undergraduate texts in engineering solid mechanics, Govindjee''s exposition is compelling for the manner in which it reveals the underlying principles behind the resulting equations. Well written, concise, and insightful, the approach encourages an understanding of
fundamental concepts critical to the development of mathematical models in engineering mechanics. The book is highly recommended as a refreshingly intellectual take on a classic topic." -- Garrett J. Hall, California Polytechnic State University


About the Author


Sanjay Govindjee is a Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley (1993-2006, 2008-present). His main interests are in theoretical and computational mechanics with an emphasis on micromechanics, shape memory alloys, and elastomers. Prior to joining Berkeley he worked as
an engineer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (1991-1993) in Livermore, California. He was also Professor of Mechanics (2006-2008) at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

Noteworthy honours include a National Science Foundation Career Award, the inaugural 1998 Zienkiewicz Prize and Medal, an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship, a Berkeley Chancellor''s Professorship 2006-2011, and a guest Professorship at ETH Zurich 2008-2013.

Awesome book
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2013
Very well-written, concise, easy-to-read, yet full of detail and theory when needed. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to get a solid grasp on introductory solid mechanics.

This book is stated as being intended for a 3rd year (Junior) engineering student. It was assigned for my Master’s level strength of materials class, and we struggled to follow along. It is absolutely terrible. Even the professor admitted to the class that he didn’t like the textbook. The worst part of the book is that he will frequently make leaps in his problems/derivations with no comment or explanation as to how he went from one step to another. I don’t expect to have every single step laid out, but it is too large a step when it takes multiple grad students 10-15 minutes to figure out how he went from A to B. Many of the remarks are just rambling on and don’t meaningfully contribute to the point he is trying to make. Finally, his use of figures and diagrams is inconsistent at best. He often will omit them and try to explain in the text what is happening in the problem. So taking 30 seconds to look at a figure to understand the system then goes to 5-10 minutes trying to understand what he is trying to convey. The figures he includes are often referenced multiple times, and can be up to 10 pages back in the book! This is extremely frustrating to have to stop going through a proof or problem to go back and find a figure, then constantly flip pages back and forth. The edges of the pages are barren, so there is still plenty of space for adding figures.

The topics covered in the book are interesting, but they are just not conveyed in a useful way. In all honesty, I would simply purchase the book that I was assigned in undergrad: Mechanics of Materials by Gere. It covers most of these same topics, and much better. If you are unfortunate enough to be assigned this text, I would buy an old edition of Gere’s and read it while doing the problems from this text if it came to it.
