Rigorous without being overly mathematical, this complete and modern treatment of the fundamentals of elasticity recognizes the widespread use of approximate (numerical) methods in elasticity, but emphasizes the importance of basic concepts and theories of elasticity as being fundamental to the understanding and interpretation of numerical analysis. Presents in detail the theories of deformation, stress, stress-strain relations, and fundamental boundary value problems of elasticity.From the Back Cover:
Comprehensive, accessible, and LOGICAL-an outstanding treatment of elasticity in engineering mechanics
Arthur Boresi and Ken Chong's Elasticity in Engineering Mechanics has been prized by many aspiring and practicing engineers as an easy-to-navigate guide to an area of engineering science that is fundamental to aeronautical, civil, and mechanical engineering, and to other branches of engineering. With its focus not only on elasticity theory but also on concrete applications in real engineering situations, this acclaimed work is a core text in a spectrum of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and a superior reference for engineering professionals. With more than 200 graphs, charts, and tables, this Second Edition includes:
* A complete solutions manual for instructors
* Clear explorations of such topics as deformation and stress, stress-strain-temperature relations, plane elasticity with respect to rectangular and polar coordinates, thermal stresses, and end loads
* Discussions of deformation and stress treated separately for clarity, with emphasis on both their independence and mathematical similarities
* An overview of the mathematical preliminaries to all aspects of elasticity, from stress analysis to vector fields, from the divergence theorem to tensor algebra
* Real-world examples and problem sets illustrating the most common elasticity solutions-such as equilibrium equations, the Galerkin vector, and Kelvin's problem
* A series of appendixes covering advanced topics such as complex variables and couple-stress theory
