Analysis or design problems in the mechanics of materials generally involves two major areas :

-Determination of the internal forces set up within the material by loads or displacements imposed on it ; this is a largely mathematical undertaking, termed stress analysis. These internal forces are often independent of the choice of material used in the structure, and it is often possible to carry out this analysis without much specific knowledge of the material itself. This is the mechanics in "mechanics of materials".

-Understanding the material's response to there internal forces. The material may stretch or distort, this deformation may be reversible or permanent, or the material may fracture in any of several ways. This part of the problem is most certainly materials-specific; it is the materials in "mechanics of materials".

R E S O U R S E S Highly Highly Recommanded !!

C O U R S E W A R E Highly Highly Recommanded !!

나의 가장 좋아하는 사이트에서 이미 상세히 설명을 드렸으므로 여기에서는 그냥 링크만시켜 놓았습니다.



[book summary] By Corkill, Puderbaugh, and Sawyers

책의 내용을 요약정리한 내용을 그림과 같이 제공한다. 비구조 건축인들에게 구조적 마인드를 키우기 위한 최상의 사이트가 되리라 믿습니다. 이해에 별 어려움이 없었다면, 당신의 구조적 소양이 검증되었으므로 건축설계인들을 위한 구조강의를 제공하는 아래 사이트에 곧장 가길 추천합니다. 엄한데 가지 마시고....

Highly recommanded!!


By Prof. Kirk Martini

University of Virginia

Department of Architecture

Spring 1998

그림과 설명이 제공되는 아주 가볼 만한 곳으로 우리나라의 학부에서 구조수업이 지향해야할 바에 대해 상당히 생각케 한다.

Wonderful Professor Highly recommanded!!

Prof. Kirk Martini, Assistant Professor of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Department of Architecture, University of Virginia

바로 위에 소개한 두 개의 사이트를 제공하고 있는 교수로서 그의 글들과 참여한 프로젝트를 거의 모두 제공하고 있다. 이렇게 모든 자료와 정보를 무보수로 보따리 풀 듯 내어놓으면 어떡하나하는 안쓰러움이 생길 정도로 대단한 교수님이다. 얻을 것이 무척 많이 있고 링크되어 있으니 들어가면 웃으며 나오리라 예상된다.


STRUCTURE 1 Highly recommanded!!

Architectonics에서 제공하는 강의로서 다분히 설명글이 많이 있어 좀더 자세한 사항을 필요로 할 경우 보면 된다. 왠만한 구조 책보다 떨어지지 않는다. 굳이 돈 주고 사서 볼 필요가 있겠는가??라는 생각이 들 정도이다.....



By Coco Moran

Forces, Structure and Architecture is a unit I taught to my fifth and sixth grade practicum students at Marks Meadow Elementary School in Amherst, Massachusetts. The unit began as a study of forces. Then gradually moved to structures. After this part of the unit, I continued with a study of architecture. A lot of the theories pertaining to how a building stands, along with materials had been in place for a while when we commenced the architecture part of the unit, so we were well prepared. With things like forces, materials, and basics of construction, we were able to discover what a landscape architect, historic renovator, engineer and constructor perform during the course of their work. The last three professionals were able to speak to the class first hand by coming into the classroom as our guest or by a field trip directly to the site, for example, of the new Polymer Research building at the University of Massachusetts campus at Amherst.

Architronic is a scholarly refereed journal, exploring the new ranges
of architectural communication available through digital media. It is a platform
for both presenting and reviewing research as a journal, and a forum for stimulating
dialogue on emerging ideas.
