The first and only book on the subject with so many engineering applications in addition to the theory
Covers not only linear problems of Thermal Stresses, as earlier books do, but also non linear problems, e.g., contains the whole chapter on Creep Analysis due to Thermal Stresses, which is wholly unique
Is a textbook on graduate level (although it starts with basic concepts and principles), with many solved problems in the text and many problems at the end of chapters
Covers topics of modern theories (now of substantial interest), like Coupled Thermoelasticity and Generalized Thermoelasticity, and Functionally Graded Structures
Covers Finite Element Methods as applied to Thermal Stresses as well as Boundary Element Method
This book is intended as an advanced modern textbook and reference handbook on the topic of thermal stresses. It should serve a wide range of readers, in particular, graduate and postgraduate students, scientists, researchers in various industrial and government institutes, and engineers working in mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering.
This volume covers diverse areas of applied mathematics, continuum mechanics, stress analysis, and mechanical design. This work treats a number of topics not presented in other books on thermal stresses, for example: theory of coupled and generalized thermoelasticity, finite and boundary element method in generalized thermoelasticity, thermal stresses in functionally graded structures, and thermal expansions of piping systems.
As the field of thermal stresses lies at the crossroads of stress analysis, theory of elasticity, heat conduction, and advanced methods of applied mathematics, all these subjects are dealt with in the book to the extent they are necessary. Thus, the book is self-contained, so that the reader should not need to consult other sources while studying the topic. The book starts from basic concepts and principles, and these are developed to more advanced levels as the text progresses. Nevertheless, some basic knowledge on the part of the reader is expected in classical mechanics, stress analysis, and mathematics, including vector and cartesian tensor analysis.
