Simplified Mechanics and Strength of Materials

This book 'Simplified Mechanics and Strength of Materials'  by James E.Ambrose was first published by john Wiley and Sons. James Ambrose, a Formerly Professor of Architecture University of Southern California Los Angeles, California.

The fundamental materials presented here derive from two general areas of study.
  • First is applied mechanics, and most principally, applications of the field of statics. This study deals primarily with the nature of forces and their effects when applied to objects. 
  • While the second area of study is that of strength of materials, which deals generally with the behavior of particular forms of objects, of specific structural materials, when subjected to actions of forces. 
Simplified Mechanics and Strength of Materials by James E Ambrose may function as a self-study reference. The book is more practical application, however, is as a text for a course in which case readers will have the advantage of guidance, prodding, and counsel from a teacher.

Although the work here is mostly quite theoretical in nature, some use of data and criteria derived from sources of real materials and products is necessary.
