Elasticity: Theory, Applications and Numerics 2e provides a concise and organized presentation and development of the theory of elasticity, moving from solution methodologies, formulations and strategies into applications of contemporary interest, including fracture mechanics, anisotropic/composite materials, micromechanics and computational methods. Developed as a text for a one or two-semester graduate elasticity course, this new edition is the only elasticity text to provide coverage in the new area of non-homogenous, or graded, materal behavior. Extensive end-of-chapter exercises throughout the book are fully incorporated with the use of MATLAB software.
* Provides a thorough yet concise introduction to general elastic theory and behavior with numerous applications in areas of contemporary interest including fracture mechanics, anisotropic/composite and graded materials, micromechanics, and computational methods
* The only current elasticity text to incorporate MATLAB into its extensive end-of-chapter exercises
* First elasticity text to provide coverage on non-homogenous, or graded, material behavior
* 355 end of chapter exercises – 30% NEW to this edition
