    THANX gokul!
    I was using Ferdinan L. Singers book. Just needed some other reference. The notes on the internet sites are superb. Also I have heard about the Timoshenko book. I will look for it. Thanx again for the help.

    Timoshenko all the way pamichel!

    A lecturer once told us, "you must all go out and buy Timoshenko's mechanics textbook".

    We'd not heard of him before, so a mate asked for a repetition so that we could make a note of it.

    "Ok, so this Tim O'Shenko, Irish is he?"
