Editorial Reviews


From the reviews of the third edition:


“The present textbook is an introductory course in the theory of linear elasticity. … It is pleasantly readable not only for students specialized in engineering, but also for students specializing in other fields, especially in mathematics, who are interested in mathematical and technical theories of elasticity. It can also serve as a reference book. … The chapters are endowed with computational examples and exercises, which make the textbook transparent and easy to understand.” (Georg V. Jaiani, zbMATH, Vol. 1280, 2014)

From the Back Cover

Introduction to Linear Elasticity, 3rd Edition, provides an applications-oriented grounding in the tensor-based theory of elasticity for students in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, and biomedical engineering, as well as materials and earth science. The book is distinct from the traditional text aimed at graduate students in solid mechanics by introducing the subject at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. The author's presentation allows students to apply the basic notions of stress analysis and move on to advanced work in continuum mechanics, plasticity, plate and shell theory, composite materials, viscoelasticity and finite method analysis.

This book also:

  •  Emphasizes tensor-based approach while still distilling down to explicit notation
  • Provides introduction to theory of plates, theory of shells, wave propagation, viscoelasticity and plasticity accessible to advanced undergraduate students
  • Appropriate for courses following emerging trend of teaching solid mechanics within undergraduate engineering curricula
  • Presents meaningful examples with detailed steps and results
  • Includes instructors' solutions manual
