Engineering - Material Science & Metallurgy
- Contains a larger amount of material and more thorough explanations of concepts than competing texts
- Presents a comprehensive introduction of foundational topics including Cartesian tensoral analysis
- Provides extensive coverage on elasticity
- Illustrates complex material with detailed examples and figures
Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity provides a solid background for students of civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering. The well-organized text contains thorough explanations of concepts based on both the linear theory of elasticity and the theory of mechanics of materials. In addition to classical methods of analysis, the author develops a methodology for the analysis of stress, deformation, and stability of various structural elements using both theories as a foundation. The book also includes boundary value problems for computing displacement and stress fields in solid bodies that can be solved using finite element methods with the aid of a computer.
