  • Description
  • Contents

Intended for graduates in mechanical, civil, or structural engineering, or in applied mechanics, this text covers advanced topics that have only been accessible in review articles until now, widely scattered through the literature. Practising engineers will thus also find it a useful reference. The book begins with the fundamentals of the mathematical theory of plasticity, presented in sufficient detail to make the text self-sufficient. The discussion then turns to the theory of plastic stress and its applications to structural analysis and sheet metal forming. This is followed by treatments of axially symmetrical systems and some three-dimensional problems. The generalised tangent-modulus theory of buckling in the plastic range for columns, plates and shells is treated from the point of view of the bifurcation phenomenon. The concluding chapter deals with a wide range of topics in dynamic plasticity including wave propagation, armour penetration, and structural impact in the plastic range. In view of the rapidly growing interest in computational methods, an appendix presents the fundamentals of a finite-element analysis of metal-forming problems.
