In this book, the author has collected existing information on the analysis of elastic-plastic structures subjected to variable repeated loads and to variable temperature fields. He presents the foundations of the theory and its applications to the shakedown analysis of structures of various types and to computational algorithms.

The book provides useful and interesting material for students of civil and mechanical engineering, practising engineers with a good mathematical background and also scientists concerned with the analysis of inelastic structures.
