Overview

This key text and reference for engineers, researchers and senior students deals with the analysis and modelling of structures – from large civil engineering projects such as dams and aircraft structures, through to small engineered components. Since the publication of the first edition in 1967, this complete stand-alone volume has evolved to cover the latest developments and methods that are essential for engineers and mathematicians.

• Dedicated coverage of solid and structural mechanics by world-renowned authors
• New material including separate coverage of solid continua and structural theories of rods, plates and shells; extended coverage of small and finite deformation; elastic and inelastic material constitution; contact modelling; problems involving solids, rigid and discrete elements; and multi-scale modelling
• Accompanied by downloadable software

Together with the first and third self-contained volumes, The Finite Element Method Set provides a formidable resource covering the theory and the application of FEM, including the basis of the method, its application to advanced solid and structural mechanics and to computational fluid dynamics.
