Moreover there is considerable material on how to perform computer analyses of stress concentrations and how to design to reduce stress concentration. One of the objectives of application of stress concentration factors is to achieve better balanced designs1 of structures and machines. and nothing first. Stress Concentration for the past half century. with the computational formulation for design of systems with potential stress concentration problems. Balanced design is delightfully phrased in the poem. cost reduction.

Stress concentration charts not retained are identified in the text so that interested readers can refer to the earlier editions. or the Wonderful One Hoss Shay" by Oliver Wendell Holmes (1858): "Fur". Much of the material from these books has been retained intact for the present edition. Example calculations on the use of the stress concentration charts have been included in this edition. Only after preparing this edition of this book has it become evident how much effort he put into his two previous books: Stress Concentration Design Factors (1953) and Stress Concentration Factors (1974). These were carefully crafted treatises.

The development of new experimental stress concentration curves has slowed to a trickle. Schramm was a principal contributor to Chapter 6 on computational analysis and design. experience indicates that with so much material. it is almost impossible to completely eliminate errors. An errata list will be set up that will be linked to the author's home page. Weize Kang. Chinese. Drs. A program to calculate stress concentration factors has been developed to accompany this book.

Wu and Kang were instrumental throughout in developing new material and. and Uwe Schramm. all of which were in the Chinese language. WALTER D. Many polynomial representations of the stress concentration factors were prepared by Debbie Pilkey. Several special figures were drawn by Charles Pilkey. Special thanks are due to Brett Matthews and Wei Wei Ding. Often structural analysis is performed computationally in which the use of stress concentration factors is avoided. and Russian stress concentration books.

Major contributions to this revised book were made by Huiyan Wu. since a high-stress region is simply part of the computer analysis.The universal availability of general purpose structural analysis computer software has revolutionized the field of stress concentrations. No longer are there numerous photoelastic stress concentration studies being performed. Graphical keys to the stress concentration charts are provided to assist the reader in locating a desired chart.edu If you find errors.virginia. respectively.
