Description

This is a comprehensive, reader-friendly treatment of the theory behind modern elastic composite materials. The treatment includes recently developed results and methods drawn from research papers published in Eastern Europe that until now were unavailable in many western countries. Among the book's many notable features is the inclusion of more than 400 problems, many of which are solved at the end of the book. Mechanics of Elastic Composites is an outstanding textbook for graduate-level course work and a valuable reference for engineers and researchers. Developed over many years by leading experts in the field, this book will remain an important contribution to the literature for years to come.show more

Review quote

"This is one of the best books on mechanics of solids and composite materials published in the 21st centuryIt is written as a textbook for mechanical engineering students, but its contents and the complexity of topics it covers make it closer to a research monographThis book is the result of more than 20 years work by the authors and, as a result, it contains accurate mathematical derivations and proofs." - Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2005k "I believe this is an excellent book. It can be used as a textbook for some of the topics it covers and in view of its advanced mathematical level, also as a reference book for researchers and institutional librariesthe problem collection is excellentI know of very few books on this classical topic which cover so much material in such a readable and user-friendly way. The aims of the authors were well reached. It will be quite useful for mechanics students and researchers." -Applied Mathematics Review, Vol. 57, No. 5, September 2004show more
