Well-written, thoughtfully prepared, and profusely illustrated, this text is the work of a trio of prominent experts. The treatment builds on the mechanics background obtained from an engineering curriculum's first course in physics, providing the foundations for a study of such advanced topics in solid mechanics as the theory of elasticity, structural analysis, plasticity, and shell theory. Divided into two parts, the book begins with an exposition of the fundamentals of solid mechanics and the principles of mechanics, statics, and simple statically indeterminate systems. The second half deals with strain and stress in three-dimensional solids, elementary elasticity, stress-strain relations for plastic solids, and energy principles in solid continuum. Each chapter concludes with a set of problems and a concise summary of important principles.
