Thermal Stresses, 2nd Edition is the first book comprehensive volume on thermal stresses. It provides a sound grounding in the fundamental theory of thermal stresses as well as includes a multitude of applications. Many solved examples are included in the text, with numerous problems at the end of each chapter.
The book starts with an introduction to the elementary theory, at the undergraduate level, and then progresses with the exposition of more advanced methods. The authors introduce the topics in a clear fashion, easy to grasp by students, engineers and scientists.
""… A good reference book for a graduate course in theory of elasticity. …An excellent source of solution techniques for thermal stress problems, it will be valuable for researchers and practicing engineers. …highly recommended for the library of any university or research institution conducting research in solid and structural mechanics."."
