About this book

There have been many excellent books written on the subject of plastic deformation in solids, but rarely can one find a textbook on this subject. “Plasticity Modeling & Computation” is a textbook written specifically for students who want to learn the theoretical, mathematical, and computational aspects of inelastic deformation in solids. It adopts a simple narrative style that is not mathematically overbearing, and has been written to emulate a professor giving a lecture on this subject inside a classroom. Each section is written to provide a balance between the relevant equations and the explanations behind them. Where relevant, sections end with one or more exercises designed to reinforce the understanding of the “lecture.” Color figures enhance the presentation and make the book very pleasant to read. For professors planning to use this textbook for their classes, the contents are sufficient for Parts A and B that can be taught in sequence over a period of two semesters or quarters.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book under review gives an introduction to plasticity equations, covering a wide range of models and applications. … The book can certainly be used to accompany a lecture in mechanical engineering, but it can also be valuable for a mathematician to learn about the many variations of the standard models.” (Ben W. Schweizer, Mathematical Reviews, March, 2015)

“The book gives an interesting and up-to-date overview of applied numerical methods for the computations of plastic materials of different kinds. … it does give a good overview to researchers, enriched by an appropriate number of references for further reading. So, we can recommend it to advanced students and professionals in this rapidly evolving branch of mechanics.” (Albrecht Bertram, zbMATH, Vol. 1279, 2014)
