Theory of Plates and Shells is divine revelation for serious engineering geeks who design and analyze structures for cutting edge technology, such as aircraft and space systems. Composite buckling and crippling analysis comes alive when explained in the light of Steve Timoshenko's mathematics. Without this text, analysts are clueless about the mystical behavior of buckling plates. If aircraft design does not excite you, then use it as a non-addictive sleeping pill.
This is the ultimate tool when researching or designing structures. It is impossible to be considered an engineer if you haven't at least heard ofTimoshenko and his great opus of books, and this book is maybe his best and most extensive "high tech" work. It does not matter that it is some 60 years since the 1st edition was published, you will probably not find a better and more comprehensive title on plates and shells. Simply said, this it the engineering classic - a MUST HAVE!!!
Timoshenko = Mechanics God. This book is the backbone for plate and shell analysis.
Great book, fast delivery. Came in new condition, with a couple stickers on the front and a line of text on the cover that says "Indian Edition"...but I haven't noticed any differences so far from other versions the students were using.
Easy to read and very pragmatic. I'm thinking I may have a preference for books written before computers. People were much more practical then. This book will make your other books make sense.
