Explores the Principles of PlasticityMost undergraduate programs lack an undergraduate plasticity theory course, and many graduate programs in design and manufacturing lack a course on plasticity-leaving a number of engineering students without adequate information on the subject. Emphasizing stresses generated in the material and its effect, Plast

About the Author

Dr. P.M. Dixit obtained a bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur in 1974 and a PhD in mechanics in 1979 from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the IIT Kanpur in 1984, where he is currently a professor. For the past 25 years, he has been working in the area of computational plasticity with applications for metal-forming processes and ductile fracture in impact problems using finite element method as a computational tool. He has published approximately 50 journal papers, 25 conference papers, and two books.

Dr. U.S. Dixit obtained a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Roorkee (now Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee) in 1987, an MTech in mechanical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur in 1993, and a PhD in mechanical engineering from IIT Kanpur in 1998. A professor for the department of mechanical engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Dr. Dixit has published numerous papers and three books. He has also edited a book on metal forming, guest-edited a number of special journal issues, and is an associate editor for the Journal of Institution of Engineers Series C.
