The stress matrix is covered in the first few pages of the text Normal stresses comprise the diagonal and shear stresses the off diagonal elements The matrix is shown to be symmetric by summing torques about a small rectangular parallelepiped in equilibrium in the material the shear stresses cancel in pairs proving the symmetry Care and note should be taken of the initial position and directions of these stress vectors as they form a reference base just as you might define in strength of materials Similar arguments are used to derive the differential equations of equilibrium pretty much elementary engineering statics The most difficult part is also in the first few pages where strain is defined and constructed as a differential Really Hooke s Law of course relates stress to strain and enters our system of equations as the compatibility equations A new function is introduced, the stress function, an auxiliary function which arises as we explore the form of these equations and all quantities we seek can be written in terms of various combinations of derivatives of this This is like in electromagnetism where Maxwell s Equations can be written in terms of vector and scalar potentials, solved and the fields arise as combinations of derivatives of these potentials As other reviewers have commented the book is chock full of examples which can help if the example at least has some similarities to your problem In chapter 8 where general theorems are derived, in the section on Castigliano s Theorem, roughly stated, is found that the stress field the solution arises so as to make the total stress energy a minimum a variational principle In the next section the Rayleigh Ritz method is applied using this principle the direct ancestor of the finite element method Other than this F.E.M is not used In chapter 13 you ll find an excellent presentation of thermal stress which is sort of hard to ferret out of the literature In chapter 14 you have a presentation of wave propagation in elastic solids Unlike Landau and Lifschitz this text assumes minimal math preparation as found in undergraduate calculus for engineers if that much not what could be termed math maturity Lot of hand holding here rather than elegance for mathematical physicists.

This book is commonly considered as the Bible in Solid Mechanics It is highly recommended for ones, who is doing research and or teaching related to elastic solids, stress, deformation, etc beyond 1D treatment Normally, textbooks in elasticity after Timoshenko commonly used his solutions and formulations Timoskenko s other classic books on Theory of Elastic Stability and Theory of Elastic Plates and Shells are also highly recommended if you are doing specific elastic members above.

Be aware that this is the Indian edition and it a super cheap copy Mine was sold to me as being New but was clearly used and had damage to front and back covers as well as spine If what you want is a cheap used copy, then this is fine.

Basically the most important text on the subject Must for all mechanical and structural engineering students Helped me in my graduate course
