Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A systematic presentation of energy principles and variational methods

The increasing use of numerical and computational methods in engineering and applied sciences has shed new light on the importance of energy principles and variational methods. Energy Principles and Variational Methods in Applied Mechanics provides a systematic and practical introduction to the use of energy principles, traditional variational methods, and the finite element method to the solution of engineering problems involving bars, beams, torsion, plane elasticity, and plates.

Beginning with a review of the basic equations of mechanics and the concepts

of work, energy, and topics from variational calculus, this book presents

the virtual work and energy principles, energy methods of solid and structural mechanics, Hamilton’s principle for dynamical systems, and classical variational methods of approximation. A unified approach, more general than that found in most solid mechanics books, is used to introduce the finite element method. Also discussed are applications to beams and plates.

Complete with more than 200 illustrations and tables, Energy Principles and Variational Methods in Applied Mechanics, Second Edition is a valuable book for students of aerospace, civil, mechanical, and applied mechanics; and engineers in design and analysis groups in the aircraft, automobile, and civil engineering structures, as well as shipbuilding industries.

About the Author

J. N. REDDY, PhD, is University Distinguished Professor and inaugural holder of the Oscar S. Wyatt Endowed Chair in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station. He has authored and coauthored several books, including Energy and Variational Methods in Applied Mechanics, Advanced Engineering Analysis (with M. L. Rasmussen), and A Mathematical Theory of Finite Elements (with J. T. Oden), all published by Wiley.

I like this book due to its clear, although it was used.
And no any brofen or page lack appears.
If some body ask me where to buy the book he need, I will talk to him that Amazon is the first choise.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By A. I. Haque on January 29, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I used this as a book for an independent study course that I took in grad school. I can no longer remember why. Probably because I couldn't find anything else. This is a topic which is typically done in a sloppy fashion in many textbooks and courses and this book is no exception. The derivations are confusing and there's no explanation for any consistent techniques that work. Everything seems to be trial and error. Energy methods are rarely used by themselves these days. If your goal is to understand the principles of finite element methods for continuum mechanics and structures, then buy Reddy's finite element book instead.
