is the use of physical theory to understand “what happens” in the real world of forces, pressures, heat, vibration, etc., and how physical structures, mechanisms, and fluids react. Applied mechanics lies at the heart of most technologies in engineering, especially in mechanics and structures. Applied mechanics is largely based on Isaac Newton’s laws of motion. Stepan Tymoshenko wrote many seminal works in engineering mechanics, elasticity, and strength of materials.
