The Thermomechanics of Plasticity and Fractureby Gerard A. Maugin
Pub. Date: 05/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This volume concentrates on the mathematical theory of plasticity and fracture, and presents it in a thermomechanical framework. Many examples of plasticity and fracture are presented, and each chapter concludes with problems for students.
