About The Authors
Stephen P. Timoshenko is considered to be the father of modern mechanical engineering.
S. Timoshenko’s books range from courses in first year undergraduate to advanced graduate students. Some of the books he had written are, Theory of Plates and Shells, Advanced Dynamics and History of The Strength of Materials from 1925 to 1972.
The Ukrainian-American author’s contribution in the field of engineering and his impact on education is unprecedented. His clear and logical style of writing in his textbooks and technical papers have inspired and taught generations of structural engineers all over the world.
He was born in Ukraine but later moved to America, and became a professor at the Stanford University in 1936. He passed away in 1972.
James M. Gere’s career span of 34 years revolved around teaching mechanics, and structural and earthquake engineering as well as authoring textbooks.
He authored nine textbooks, starting with Mechanics of Materials. Some of his other works include Matrix Algebra for Engineers and Moment Distribution. In 1974, he co-founded the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at the Stanford University, of which he was a professor. He travelled worldwide as well as to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon national parks, to study these earthquake prone areas.
He was married to his childhood sweetheart for 61 years, till his death. He is now survived by his wife and three children.
