Hardcover. 372 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 1.3in.This book concentrates on the mathematical theory of plasticity and fracture, and presents it in a thermomechanical framework. It follows the macroscopic, phenomenological approach, which proposes equations abstracted from generally accepted experimental facts, studies the adequacy of the consequences drawn from these equations to those facts, and then provides useful tools for designers and engineers. Many examples of plasticity and fracture are presented, and each chapter concludes with problems for students. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title:

Synopsis:

This book concentrates upon the mathematical theory of plasticity and fracture as opposed to the physical theory of these fields, and is presented in the thermomechanical framework. It follows the macroscopic, phenomenological approach which proposes equations abstracted from generally accepted experimental facts, studies the adequacy of the consequences drawn from these equations to those facts and then provides useful tools for designers and engineers. The material is drawn from the author's graduate course in Europe and the United States and may be used to form the basis for similar graduate courses on plasticity and fracture. Many worked examples are presented and each chapter concludes with problems for students. The book will thus undoubtedly establish itself as a core text for both students and researchers.

Book Description: "One could characterize the style of the book as 'robust'. It has obvious pedagogical appeal. In the introduction the author expresses his hope that the book will find its place both on the student's shelf and in the professional scientist's office. The reviewer strongly recommends that." Miroslav Silhavy, Mathematical Reviews
