An introduction combining treatment of basic continuum mechanics with the theories of beams and plates and static stability theory, emphasizing variational formulations and numerical computation and providing a prerequisite to the study of the finite element method for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in civil and mechanical engineering. Offers a unified approach to numerical computation based on the Ritz method, with computer programs illustrating numerical computations associated with nonlinear problems, worked examples, and chapter problems. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Publisher:

This readable, student-friendly text responds to the pedagogical needs created by the advent of computational mechanics by focusing more upon formulations and fundamental principles and less upon classical solution techniques. It covers three main areas--(1) the fundamental principles of continuum mechanics, (2) the theories of beams and plates, and (3) static stability theory--with three unifying strands connecting them--(1) a direct vector notation, (2) the principle of virtual work (or variational calculus), and (3) a unified approach to numerical computation.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This book fills the gap created by the advent of computational mechanics by focusing more upon formulations and fundamental principles and less upon solution techniques. Key Topics: It covers three main areas—(1) the fundamental principles of continuum mechanics, (2) the theories of beams and plates, and (3) static stability theory—with three unifying strands connecting them—(1) a direct vector notation, (2) the principle of virtual work (or variational calculus), and (3) a unified approach to numerical computation.
