In this post, we will see the book Structural Mechanics by A. Darkov and V. Kuznetsov.
The book deals with a variety of structures and their stability from an engineering viewpoint. The structures discussed include arches, frames, trusses, roofs, retaining walls, bridges, columns and beams.
The book was translated from the Russian by B. Lachionov and the second edition was published by Mir in 1966.
