Coverage begins with simple, then compound, stresses and strains, and proceeds through bending moments and shearing forces, bending stresses in beams, deflection of beams, tursion, fixed and continuous beams, columns and struts, thin and thick cylinders, and theories of elastic failure.
Topics covered include normal and shear stress, deformations associated with force, torsion, and theories of elastic failure.
