NonLinear Elastic Deformationsby R. W. Ogden
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This classic offers a meticulous account of the theory of finite elasticity. It covers the application of the theory to the solution of boundaryvalue problems, as well as the analysis of the mechanical properties of solid materials capable of large elastic deformations. Setting is purely isothermal. Problems. References. Appendixes. Synopsis:Application of theory of finite elasticity to solution of boundaryvalue problems, analysis of mechanical properties of solid materials capable of large elastic deformations. Problems.
