The content of the present publication of designing for strength is mainly intended to provide a good coverage of the strength related calculations for the general design to the standards considered suitable for the engineering courses. However decision was made by the author of the volume to skip the academic soil and fracture mechanics, advanced theoretical civil engineering, plasticity and other matters.

The original intention is to explain in details the main stress forms and then proceed to the critical examination of the associated material properties and relevant testing. After that the author explains the stress concentration followed by the information on the applications, with the latter being treated in fundamental terms, relevant aspects and procedures that are specific to the constructions and pressure vessels.

The volume concludes with the numerous real case studies providing additional information for easier understanding of the subject. A huge part of the material has been presented in a quite condensed format with some references made to the publications available today, all listed in a separate section, all of the references have been selected by the author of the book.
