TL;DR Summary: I need the toughest problem books for mechanical properties of solids and mechanical properties of fluids, much better if they're relevant for olympiads.

I need the toughest problem books for mechanical properties of solids and mechanical properties of fluids, much better if they're relevant for olympiads.

I do have a list of books here:

"Advanced Mechanics of Materials" by Arthur P. Boresi and Richard J. Schmidt
"Advanced Strength and Applied Elasticity" by Ansel C. Ugural and Saul K. Fenster
"Mechanical Behavior of Materials" by Marc André Meyers and

The answer can of course be out of these books, im not even sure of their quality of quesitons
 

Related to Which Books Offer the Toughest Problems on Mechanical Properties for Olympiads?

Which books are considered the best for challenging problems on mechanical properties for Olympiads?

Some of the top books often recommended for tough problems on mechanical properties include "Problems in General Physics" by I.E. Irodov, "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker, "Introduction to Mechanics" by Kleppner and Kolenkow, "Problems in Physics" by A.A. Pinsky, and "Physics Olympiad: Basic to Advanced Exercises" by The Committee of Japan Physics Olympiad.

Are there any books specifically tailored for the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) level?

Yes, "Physics Olympiad: Basic to Advanced Exercises" by The Committee of Japan Physics Olympiad is specifically designed for IPhO preparation. Additionally, "Physics by Example: 200 Problems and Solutions" by W.G. Rees is also highly recommended for high-level competition preparation.

What makes I.E. Irodov's "Problems in General Physics" a preferred choice for Olympiad preparation?

I.E. Irodov's "Problems in General Physics" is renowned for its challenging and diverse set of problems that cover a wide range of topics in physics, including mechanical properties. The problems are designed to test deep understanding and analytical skills, making it an excellent resource for Olympiad preparation.

How does "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker help in understanding mechanical properties for Olympiads?

"Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker is a comprehensive textbook that provides clear explanations of fundamental concepts along with numerous problems of varying difficulty. The book's extensive problem sets and detailed solutions help students build a strong foundation in mechanical properties, which is essential for tackling Olympiad-level questions.

Can you recommend a book that combines both theory and tough problems on mechanical properties?

"Introduction to Mechanics" by Kleppner and Kolenkow is highly recommended as it combines rigorous theoretical explanations with challenging problems. This book is particularly useful for students who need to deepen their understanding of mechanics and apply that knowledge to solve complex problems typically encountered in Olympiads.
