Practical Stress Analysis in Engineering Design (3rd Edition)




File Size: 4.63 Mb

Description
Industrialists, marketing leaders, military planners, and space scientists are continually asking their engineers and designers to produce new designs for all kinds of mechanical systems. Designs that are simultaneously workable, reliable, long-lived, easy to manufacture, safe, and economical are envisioned. Often, system components are required to be concurrently light in weight, strong, and yet fatigue-resistant. At the same time, engineers and designers are being pressed to produce these designs in ever-shortening time intervals. Consequently, they have to quickly produce analyses that
are accurate, or if inaccurate, they have to make sure they err on the safe side.

In response to these demands, engineers and designers are increasingly relying upon finite element methods (FEM) and analogous computational procedures for their designs. However, these methods are primarily methods of analysis and are thus most useful for evaluating proposed designs. Moreover, they are often expensive, inaccessible, and sensitive to element selection and assumptions on loadings and support conditions. In short, they are not always free of error. Even with steady improvements in FEM accuracy, accessibility, and ease of use, engineers and designers still need to be able to readily make accurate stress and deformation analyses without undue computation. Recognizing this need, Alexander Blake published his widely used Practical Stress Analysis in 1982, just when FEM and related methods were becoming popular.
