"History of Strenght of Materials" by Timoshenko

I just bought "History of Strenght of Materials" by Timoshenko = = GOD. Anyone else read it? As an ME, I want to read all the books on the history of ME, so that I know as much about my profession as possible. I really am starting to like materials. I might want to consider it if I ever get to grad school, but Im not too sure yet.

I have always wanted to get his stuff on mechanics. I have just never gotten around to it.

Hi Cyrus'. I graduated as an ME without ever reading Timoshenko but heard a lot of very favorable things about him after that. I began using some of his stuff to analyze plates under pressure loads but soon found that all his work, as well as many others, was summerized quite well by Roark. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/007072542X/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20is updated regularly and has become the bible for stress analysis. Although it is a bit of a cookbook, it provides a tremendous amount of information about stress analysis in one very convenient book. If you're interested in materials and stress analysis, you'll soon become familiar with it I'm sure.

You guys should read Timoshenko, it is the ME's bible. Or, you should read Higdon, Ohlsen, stiles, weese, riley, also gods. Their book is one of the best.

Ahhh, the Irish always were the best at writing mechanics textbooks!


Couldn't have passed my ME degree without the help of Tim O'Shenko, he's a star!

Me? Kid?!

We tried that one on a Professor of Solids, he didn't see the funny side for some reason.
