Introduction to Solid Mechanics

An Integrated Approach

Authors: Lubliner, Jacob, Papadopoulos, Panayiotis

  • Introduces a new subsection on viscoelasticity
  • Elaborates on selected solved problems
  • Reinforces readers’ understanding with introductory overviews and updated exercises in each chapter
  • 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
  • Discusses inelasticity and material failure, including descriptions of testing methods and comparisons of failure criteria, as well as structural collapse

About this Textbook

This expanded second edition presents in one text the concepts and processes covered in statics and mechanics of materials curricula following a systematic, topically integrated approach. Building on the novel pedagogy of fusing concepts covered in traditional undergraduate courses in rigid-body statics and deformable body mechanics, rather than simply grafting them together, this new edition develops further the authors’ very original treatment of solid mechanics with additional figures, an elaboration on selected solved problems, and additional text as well as a new subsection on viscoelasticity in response to students’ feedback. Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Approach, Second Edition, offers a holistic treatment of the depth and breadth of solid mechanics and the inter-relationships of its underlying concepts. Proceeding from first principles to applications, the book stands as a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
