Theory of Elasticity and Plasticity is designed as a textbook for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering in civil, mechanical and aeronautical disciplines. This book has been written with the objective of bringing the concepts of elasticity and plasticity to the students in a simplified and comprehensive manner.
The basic concepts, definitions, theory as well as practical applications are discussed in a clear, logical and concise manner for better understanding. Starting with, general relationships between stress, strain and deformations, the book deals with specific problems on plane stress, plane strain and torsion in non-circular sections. Advanced topics such as membrane analogy, beams on elastic foundations and plastic analysis of pressure vessels are also discussed elaborately.
For better comprehension, the text is well supported with:
Large number of worked-out examples in each chapter.
Numerous Review Questions that reinforce the understanding of the subject.
As all the concepts are covered extensively with a blend of theory and practice, this book will be a useful resource to the students.
