About the book

Divided into two parts, this book deals with the theory of elasticity and computational solution of its problems. Part A named Theoretical Elasticity describes the mathematical theory and the analytical techniques of problem solving. Part B entitled Computational Elasticity, is devoted to the description of two of the most popular computational methods the finite element and the boundary element methods.

Key Features

Simple and easy to comprehend descriptions of concepts
Examples in most chapters drive important points home. Problems along with answers or hints at the end of many of the chapters
Detailed derivations including intermediate steps presented for most of the equations and solutions
Chapter on cartesian tensors and index notation
A number of easy-to-understand computer codes in C++ in Part B of the book for finite element and boundary element methods. Descriptions of the working of various parts of the codes are also provided
