Excellent text, a must have for anyone working on topics directly or indirectly related to stress analysis mechanics of materials. Book is great but the Kindle version is useless. The bible for Stress calculations Libro fundamental si eres ingeniero y dise as componentes mec nicos estructurales Libro de referencia para cualquier calculo que se te pase por la cabeza En cada tema se pone r pidamente la teor a b sica necesaria y a continuaci n un listado de ecuaciones aplicadas a casos concretos viga biempotrada, placa circular con cargas de tal forma, buckling de una lamina rectangular con tales condiciones de contorno No es un libro para aprender, es mas bien para consultar ecuaciones resueltas de forma r pida. If you re a mechanical design engineer, or a mech eng student, you will find this book worth its weight in gold I use mine all the time There are two books that live on my desk Roark this and Shigley Yes, you can look stuff up on the net for free, but frankly, can you trust a web page Is it a credible source of information for a safety critical design Hmm Bought this for my son on gaining his university degree in mechanical engineering and he has found it to be invaluable
