This systematic exploration of real-world stress analysis has been completely updated to reflect state-of-the-art methods and applications now used in aeronautical, civil, and mechanical engineering, and engineering mechanics. Distinguished by its exceptional visual interpretations of solutions, Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity offers in-depth coverage for both students and engineers. The authors carefully balance comprehensive treatments of solid mechanics, elasticity, and computer-oriented numerical methods—preparing readers for both advanced study and professional practice in design and analysis.


This major revision contains many new, fully reworked, illustrative examples and an updated problem set—including many problems taken directly from modern practice. It offers extensive content improvements throughout, beginning with an all-new introductory chapter on the fundamentals of materials mechanics and elasticity.


Readers will find new and updated coverage of plastic behavior, three-dimensional Mohr’s circles, energy and variational methods, materials, beams, failure criteria, fracture mechanics, compound cylinders, shrink fits, buckling of stepped columns, common shell types, and many other topics. The authors present significantly expanded and updated coverage of stress concentration factors and contact stress developments. Finally, they fully introduce computer-oriented approaches in a comprehensive new chapter on the finite element method.
