This book offers comprehensive coverage of topics used in engineering solutions for the stiffness and strength of physical systems, with a range of scales from micrometers to kilometers. Coverage integrates a wide array of topics into a unified text, including such subjects as plasticity, fracture, composite materials, energy approaches, and mechanics of microdevices (MEMs). This integrated and unified approach reflects the reality of modern technology with its demands to learn the fundamentals of new subjects quickly.The maximum torque output of the gasoline engine of a typical pickup truck is 266 ft-lb at 4000 rpm (2008 Toyota Tacoma, 4.0 L, ... The power of both engines operating at their maximum torques are comparable (203 and 248 hp, respectively).
