His topics are simple stresses and strains, principal stresses, centroid and moment of inertia, shear forces and bending moments in beams, stresses in beams, the deflection of beams, torsion of circular members, springs, strain energy, the theory of

elastic failure, the buckling of columns, pressure vessels, plane trusses, and the mechanical testing of materials.

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.
