Fundamentals of the Theory of Plasticity by L. M. Kachanov Intended for use by advanced engineering students and professionals, this volume focuses on plastic deformation of metals at normal temperatures, as applied to strength of machines and structures. 1971 edition.
Engineering Mechanics for Structures by Louis L. Bucciarelli This text explores the mechanics of solids and statics as well as the strength of materials and elasticity theory. Its many design exercises encourage creative initiative and systems thinking. 2009 edition.
This classic text combines the scholarly insights of its distinguished author with the practical, problem-solving orientation of an experienced industrial engineer. Topics include the kinematics of vibration, degrees of freedom, gyroscopic effects, relaxation oscillations, Rayleigh's method, and more. Abundant examples and figures, plus more than 230 problems and answers. 1956 edition.
J. P. Den Hartog (1901–1989), who taught for most of his career at MIT, was one of the founders of the Dover reprint program in engineering. As the author of several books that Dover reprinted and still has in print, and as an advisor from the 1950s until just a few years before his death in 1989, Professor Den Hartog gave invaluable advice concerning books of lasting interest and importance in his field.
Not many books in engineering have a productive shelf life spanning several decades. Among the exceptions are these four books of Professor Den Hartog, which Dover reprinted and occasionally revised in later printings from 1961 through 1987: Mechanics, 1961, Strength of Materials, 1961, Mechanical Vibrations, 1985, and Advanced Strength of Materials, 1987. Still widely read and cited by authors in these areas, Den Hartog's books are a tribute to his gift for exposition and clarity.
The J. P. Den Hartog Award, established in 1987, is presented in recognition of lifetime contributions to the teaching and practice of vibration engineering.
