Non-Linear Elastic Deformations


Non-Linear Elastic Deformations Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic offers a meticulous account of the theory of finite elasticity. It covers the application of the theory to the solution of boundary-value 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.
