The Ultimate Roark's now includesstudies; easier-to-read notations and figures; more accessible layout; consistent table and equation numbering; more on experimental stress analysis and stress concentrations; new data on material behavior under stress and strain including appendix on composite materials; and, updated tables. 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 improved 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.
