This postgraduate textbook and reference for practising engineers and scientists covers subjects relevant to civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering, as well as materials science. Topics discussed include modern stability problems of fracture and damage, as well as thermodynamic principles of the stability of irreversible systems. Reflecting recent research results in catastrophe theory, the book also includes material on non-elastic stability.
