Page 14, In equation (1.4), the two definitions are interchanged. The equation should read

φ1 =

∂ uy ∂ ux ; φ2 = ∂y ∂x

(1.4)

Page 118, In the first unnumbered equation, u2 should be replaced by u1 , i.e. F1 = k1 δ1 = k1 u1 F2 = k2 δ2 = k2 (u1 cos 30o − u2 sin 30o ) . Page 125, The expression for U should read U= EI π 4 N 4 2 i Ci . 4L3 i∑ =1

This correction (replacing L by L3 ) needs to be carried through the unnumbered equations after (3.54), leading to L iπ z 2L3 dz . (3.55) w(z) sin Ci = − 4 4 EIi π 0 L Page 353, line 6: ‘cartilidge’ should be ‘cartilage’. Page 361, line 4: ‘esentially’ should be ‘essentially’. Page 375, line 6 of Summary: ‘cartiledge’ should be ‘cartilage’. Page 381, Figure P7.17: ‘exp(az)’ should be ‘exp(−az). Page 506, Problem 11.5: The dimension b is wrongly identified in the cross-sectional view. The correct figure is

a c O A

b

d B

Page 608: Solution to Problem 3.8 should read umax /umin = 13.93.
