The Finite Element Method for Solid and Structural Mechanics
- Olek Zienkiewicz
- Robert Taylor
This is the key text and reference for engineers, researchers and senior students dealing with the analysis and modelling of structures - from large civil engineering projects such as dams, to aircraft structures, through to small engineered components. Covering small and large deformation behaviour of solids and structures, it is an essential book for engineers and mathematicians. The new edition is a complete solids and structures text and reference in its own right and forms part of the world-renowned Finite Element Method series by Zienkiewicz and Taylor. New material in this edition includes separate coverage of solid continua and structural theories of rods, plates and shells; extended coverage of plasticity (isotropic and anisotropic); node-to-surface and 'mortar' method treatments; problems involving solids and rigid and pseudo-rigid bodies; and multi-scale modelling.
Practicing engineers, senior students, researchers and in mechanical, automotive, aeronautical and civil engineering. Key topic for applied mathematicians and engineering software developers.
