Advanced Mechanics of Materials is a well-established and comprehensive textbook written for the undergraduate and graduate students of aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering and applied mechanics. The book presents a unified approach to the study of the behavior of structural members and the development of design and failure criteria. It explores analytical methods for determining the strength, stiffness (deformation characteristics), and stability of the various members in a structural system.
