Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"One could characterize the style of the book as 'robust'. It has obvious pedagogical appeal. In the introduction the author expresses his hope that the book will find its place both on the student's shelf and in the professional scientist's office. The reviewer strongly recommends that." Miroslav Silhavy, Mathematical Reviews
