Mechanics of Solids part 1

The mechanics of deformable solids is more concerned with the internal forces and associated changes in the geometry of the components involved. Of particular importance are the properties of the materials used, the strength of which will determine whether the components fail by breaking in service, and the stiffness of which will determine whether the amount of deformation they suffer is acceptable.

Therefore, the subject of mechanics of materials or strength of materials is central to the whole activity of engineering design. Usually, the objectives in the analysis here will be the determination of the stresses, strains, and deflections produced by loads. Theoretical analyses and experimental results have an equal role in this field.
