Applied Elasticity and Plasticity is a comprehensive work that introduces graduate students and professionals in civil, mechanical, aeronautical and metallurgical engineering to the basic theories of elasticity, plasticity and their practical applications. Based on experimental data of static tension tests of material, several elastic and plastic stress-strain relations are derived, and commonly-used yield criteria and strain hardening rules are discussed as well.

Analysis of conventional, deviatoric and mathematical stress and strain in two and three dimensions is presented. Analytical applications include torsion and bending of structural components subjected to various loadings, thick-walled cylindrical and spherical vessels subjected to internal and external pressures, stress-concentrations around holes, stress-intensity factors in structural components containing circular, elliptical and many more concepts important for professionals and students alike.

About the Author

Mumtaz Kassir has had a long career based around his experience and expertise in structural engineering and engineering mechanics. He received his BSc degree from the University of Manchester (UK), his MS degree in Structural Engineering from Stanford University, and his PhD in Applied Mechanics from Lehigh University. Dr. Kassir worked as a civil engineer in Baghdad, Iraq, and was also an instructor at the University of Baghdad. He joined the faculty CCNY- CUNY (City University of New York), becoming a full professor in 1976, and serving as Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Executive Officer of the PhD program in Engineering until his retirement in 2014. He is the author, with Dr. G. Sih, of the book THREE-DIMENSIONAL CRACK PROBLEMS. He has written over fifty journal publications, and numerous technical reports, and international conference presentations. He has also been the Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator for several major grant projects.
