Freischneiden in der Festigkeitslehre (De Gruyter Studium) (German Edition)

Bei der Untersuchung und Beurteilung von realen Bauteilen ist es häufig notwendig, diese in Teilbauteile zu unterteilen. Dieses Zerlegen bzw. Freischneiden ist im Normalfall der Beginn jeder Aufgabe. Es verlangt wenig Theorie, stellt aber in der Praxis häufig eine große Schwierigkeit dar. Daher werden in diesem Lehrbuch nicht nur die einzelnen Teilfragen der Festigkeitslehre betrachtet, sondern aufgezeigt, wie der ganze Prozess von der Aufgabenstellung über das Freischneiden bis zur Bestimmung von Spannungen und Verformungen zu durchlaufen ist.
