    Engineering Solid Mechanics bridges the gap between elementary approaches to strength of materials and more advanced, specialized versions on the subject.
    The book provides a basic understanding of the fundamentals of elasticity and plasticity, applies these fundamentals to solve analytically a spectrum of engineering problems, and introduces advanced topics of mechanics of materials - including fracture mechanics, creep, superplasticity, fiber reinforced composites, powder compacts, and porous solids.

    Text includes:

  • stress and strain, equilibrium, and compatibility
  • elastic stress-strain relations
  • the elastic problem and the stress function approach to solving plane elastic problems
  • applications of the stress function solution in Cartesian and polar coordinates
  • Problems of elastic rods, plates, and shells through formulating a strain compatibility function as well as applying energy methods
  • Elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics
  • Plastic and creep deformation
  • Inelastic deformation and its applications
    This book presents the material in an instructive manner, suitable for individual self-study. It emphasizes analytical treatment of the subject, which is essential for handling modern numerical methods as well as assessing and creating software packages. The authors provide generous explanations, systematic derivations, and detailed discussions, supplemented by a vast variety of problems and solved examples.
    Primarily written for professionals and students in mechanical engineering, Engineering Solid Mechanics also serves persons in other fields of engineering, such as aerospace, civil, and material engineering.
