All theoreticaldevelopmentsare treat loads in engineering codes and in structural calculations. Examples presented in the text and by means of an extensive set of ?gures. Numerous of speci?c loads from gases, from liquids and from soils can be found in examples support the theory and provide a link to engineering practice. Chapters 7 and 8. These chapters can be regarded as an introduction in Combined with an extensive set of problems in each chapter, students are soil and ?uid mechanics, and can be omitted when treating only structural given ample opportunitiesto exercise. mechanics. The book consists of distinct modules, each divided into sections which After the basic theory of equilibrium of rigid bodies, boundary conditions are conveniently sized to be used as lectures.
