Introduction to Solid Mechanics

An Integrated Approach

Authors: Lubliner, Jacob, Papadopoulos, Panayiotis

  • Present concepts of statics and mechanics of materials as an integrated whole
  • Offers thorough presentation of fundamentals of the mechanics
  • of deformable solids with concepts developed to their three-dimensional aspect
  • Features section devoted to “simple stress states,” special cases in which stress can be determined by statics alone, and stress-based design is introduced as a consequence
  • Discusses stress and strain transformations, including the determination of principal axes, from both the geometric and algebraic perspectives
  • Structured for smooth coverage of the material either as an entire text or with select chapter omissions
  • Includes exercises and introductory overviews in each chapter
  • Features over 350 illustrations

About this Textbook

Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Approach presents for the first time in one text the concepts and processes covered in statics and mechanics of materials curricula following a granular, topically integrated approach. Since the turn of the millennium, it has become common in engineering schools to combine the traditional undergraduate offerings in rigid-body statics (usually called “statics”) and deformable body mechanics (known traditionally as “strength of materials” or, more recently, “mechanics of materials”) into a single, introductory course in solid mechanics. Many textbooks for the new course sequentially meld pieces of existing, discrete books--sometimes, but not always, acknowledging the origin--into two halves covering Statics and Mechanics of Materials. In this volume, Professors Lubliner and Papadopoulos methodically combine the essentials of statics and mechanics of materials, illustrating the relationship of concepts throughout, into one "integrated" text. Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Perspective offers a holistic treatment of the depth and breadth of solid mechanics, proceeding from first principles to applications.

About the authors

Jacob Lubliner is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. Panos Papadopoulos is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book with its systematic and topically integrated approach from first principles to applications combines expertly the essentials of ‘statics’ and ‘strength of materials’ into a single valuable text, and could be recommended to engineering and science students and to teachers.” (M. Cengiz Dökmeci, zbMATH, Vol. 1288, 2014)
