Presents certain key aspects of inelastic solid mechanics centered
around viscoelasticity, creep, viscoplasticity, and plasticity. It
is divided into three parts consisting of the fundamentals of
elasticity, useful constitutive laws, and applications to simple
structural members, providing extended treatment of basic problems
in static structural mechanics, including elastic and inelastic
effects. It contains worked-out examples and end-of-chapter... more...
