This book begins with the fundamentals of the mathematical theory of plasticity. The discussion then turns to the theory of plastic stress and its applications to structural analysis. It concludes with a wide range of topics in dynamic plasticity including wave propagation, armor penetration, and structural impact in the plastic range. In view of the rapidly growing interest in computational methods, an appendix presents the fundamentals of a finite-element analysis of metal-forming problems.

Back cover copy

Applied Plasticity, Second Edition, covers advanced topics in plasticity comprehensively and in detail. This new edition has been updated throughout and includes a large set of homework problems for each chapter, making it ideal for classroom use.

All relevant topics are covered, including the mathematical theory of plasticity, the theory of plane plastic stress, the axially symmetrical plastic state, the plastic behavior of plates and shells, the plasticity of metal forming processes, the theory of buckling in the plastic range, topics in dynamic plasticity, and the finite element method.

Features of the new edition include:

A full chapter on the Finite Element Method, previously published as an appendix;

A new section on yield line theory for plate bending, including the estimation of upper bounds on the limit load;

Updated chapters throughout to reflect recent advances and new developments in the field;

Homework problems for chapters one through eight;

A solutions manual available to professors;

Fully updated references.

Applied Plasticity, Second Edition, is appropriate for use by graduate students studying mechanical, civil, and structural engineering, as well as applied mechanics, and will also serve as a useful reference for engineers working in these fields.
