Book Description

Linear and Non-Linear Deformations of Elastic Solids aims to compile the advances in the field of linear and non-linear elasticity through discussion of advanced topics. Broadly classified into two parts, it includes crack, contact, scattering and wave propagation in linear elastic solids and bending vibration, stability in non-linear elastic solids supported by MATLAB examples. This book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics, solid mechanics, applied mechanics, structural mechanics and includes comprehensive discussion of related analytical/numerical methods.
