Edition 4 Theory, Applications, and Numerics
By Martin H. Sadd, Ph.D.

Publication Date: 25 Mar 2020

Elasticity: Theory, Applications, and Numerics, Fourth Edition, continues its market-leading tradition of concisely presenting and developing the linear theory of elasticity, moving from solution methodologies, formulations, and strategies into applications of contemporary interest, such as fracture mechanics, anisotropic and composite materials, micromechanics, nonhomogeneous graded materials, and computational methods.

Developed for a one- or two-semester graduate elasticity course, this new edition has been revised with new worked examples and exercises, and new or expanded coverage of areas such as treatment of large deformations, fracture mechanics, strain gradient and surface elasticity theory, and tensor analysis. Using MATLAB software, numerical activities in the text are integrated with analytical problem solutions. Online ancillary support materials for instructors include a solutions manual, image bank, and a set of PowerPoint lecture slides.

Key Features

  • Provides a thorough yet concise introduction to linear elasticity theory and applications
  • Offers detailed solutions to problems of nonhomogeneous/graded materials
  • Features a comparison of elasticity solutions with elementary theory, experimental data, and numerical simulations
  • Includes online solutions manual and downloadable MATLAB code
