Description

This introductory graduate text is a unified treatment of the major concepts of Solid Mechanics for beginning graduate students in the many branches of engineering. Major topics are elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, fracture, and fatigue. The book also has chapters on thermoelasticity, chemoelasticity, poroelasticity and piezoelectricity.

  • Includes step-by-step derivations and numerous detailed examples
  • Up-to-date presentation
  • Introduces the reader to topics in fracture and fatigue, and coupled field problems such as thermoelasticity, chemoelasticity, poroelasticity, and piezoelectricity
  • Helps equip graduate student readers to become practicing engineers, and sets them up for more specialized studies in the mechanical behavior of materials

About the Author(s)

Lallit Anand, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Dept of Mechanical Engineering, MIT, and Sanjay Govindjee, Professor in Engineering, Depf of Civil Engineering, University of California at Berkeley

Lallit Anand is the Warren and Towneley Rohsenow Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His research focuses on solid mechanics, and he is widely known for his contributions to the development of large deformation plasticity theory for engineering technology. He has received numerous honors, including the Eric Reissner Medal, 1992; ASME Fellow, 2003; International Plasticity Medal, 2007; IIT Kharagpur Distinguished Alumnus Award, 2011; ASME Drucker Medal, 2014; MIT Den Hartog Distinguished Educator Award, 2017; Brown University Engineering Alumni Medal, 2018; and the Society of Engineering Science Prager Medal, 2018. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2018.

Sanjay Govindjee is the Horace, Dorothy and Katherine Johnson Professor in Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. He is known as the leading figure in modelling and computation of finitely deformable polymeric materials. He authored Engineering Mechanics of Deformable Solids (OUP, 2013), among other books. Govindjee serves as a consultant to several governmental agencies and private corporations. He is an active member in major societies such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the US Association for Computational Mechanics. He is also a registered Professional Mechanical Engineer in the state of California. Noteworthy honors include a National Science Foundation Career Award, the inaugural 1998 Zienkiewicz Prize and Medal, an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship 1999, a Berkeley Chancellor's Professorship 2006-2011. In 2018 he received a Humboldt-Forschungspreis (Humboldt Research Award).

Reviews

"Both authors have made seminal contributions to the subject, and are scholars of great depth and breadth. The field is well established, broadly useful, and commonly taught. In recent years, new extensions, refinements, and applications are discovered, in fields like polymers, gels, and batteries. A textbook with attention to practical pedagogy, as written by these two distinguished scholars, is exceptionally timely." - Zhigang Suo, Harvard University

"This book will find a broad audience as a textbook for first year graduate level courses in solid mechanics all over the world." - Prashant Purohit, University of Pennsylvania

"The presentation is excellent... it is an appropriate time for such a book, particularly for the inclusion of thermoelasticity, viscoelasticity and chemoelasticity which are of increasing importance." - Alan Needleman, Texas A&M University
