With each succeeding edition, this renowned reference has proven itself as the be-all, end-all resource for designers, engineers, and analysts working with calculations of loads and stress. The Seventh Edition is no exception, as it carries on the book's tradition of presenting equations and diagrams of structural properties all in an easy-to-use, thumb-through format. Offering readability, the latest edition of Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain is truly the best Roark's yet, and the one reference that you'll turn to most, project after project, year after year. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
