Although there are several books in print dealing with elasticity, many focus on specialized topics such as mathematical foundations, anisotropic materials, two-dimensional problems, thermoelasticity, non-linear theory, etc. As such they are not appropriate candidates for a general textbook. This book provides a concise and organized presentation and development of general theory of elasticity. Complemented by a Solutions Manual and including MatLab codes and coding, this text is an excellent book teaching guide.
- Contains exercises for student engagement as well as the integration and use of MATLAB Software
- Provides development of common solution methodologies and a systematic review of analytical solutions useful in applications of engineering interest
- Presents applications of contemporary interest

A thorough yet concise introductory textbook to general elasticity theory and behavior.From the Back Cover:
Elasticity: Theory, Applications and Numerics has been developed as a text for a one or two-semester graduate elasticity course. The text begins with a clear and organized presentation of the theoretical formulation, done in a concise manner so as not to lose attention of less-mathematically inclined students or the focus of applications. A wide variety of analytical solutions to problems of engineering interest are presented, many of which come from contemporary areas of solid mechanics research including fracture mechanics, composite and functionally graded materials, micromechanics, and thermoelasticity.
Numerical activities are integrated with analytical problem solution using MATLAB® software. These numerics aid in particular calculations, graphically present stress/displacement solutions to problems of interest, and conduct simple finite element calculations enabling comparisons with previously studied analytical solutions. Numerous exercises are provided at the end of each chapter for homework assignments to engage students with the subject matter. These exercises also provide an ideal tool for the instructor to present additional application examples during class lectures. A solutions manual and downloadable MATLAB® codes are conveniently available on the publisher’s web site www.books.elsevier.com.
