Plasticity for Engineers: Theory and Applications, 2nd Edition
English | 328 pages | ISBN-10: 1898563705 | PDF | 23.44 MB
This book focuses on the plastic property of materials, and the way in which structures made of such material behave under load. It is intended for civil, mechanical, electro-mechanical, marine, and aeronautical engineers for under-graduate or post-graduate courses or research, and professionals in industry. Professor Calladine, from long experience in teaching, research and industry, here delivers a readable and authoritative account of theory and applications. He presents the classical "perfect plasticity material" as a model of irreversible mechanical behavior, using this perfect plasticity property to analyze a range of continuum structural problems and metal-forming processes relevant to engineering practice.
