Mechanics and Strength of Materials

Mechanics and Strength of Materials 

Vitor Dias da Silva

Preference :

Materials are of a discrete nature since they are made of atoms and molecules, in the case of liquids and gases, or, in the case of solid materials, also of fibers, crystals, granules, associations of different materials, etc. The physical interactions between these constituent elements determine the behavior of the materials. Of the different facets of a material’s behavior, rheological behavior is needed for the Mechanics of Materials. It may be defined as the way the material deforms under the action of forces. The influence of those interactions on macroscopic material behavior is studied by sciences like the Physics of Solid State and has mostly been clarified, at least from a qualitative point of view. However, due to the extreme complexity of the phenomena that influence material behavior, the quantitative description based on these elementary interactions is still a relatively young field of scientific activity.
