Strength of materials principles are applied to the stress analysis of machine components and structures. The effects of buckling and combined bending, torsion, and axial loadings are studied together with the effects of stress risers due to geometrical complexities. Topics include: 3D stress transformations; principal stresses; Mohr's circle; failure criteria; stress concentration factors; equilibrium and energy methods; plates; global, local and inelastic buckling; finite elements; fracture and fatigue.
