Plasticity of Materials Series
Aim & Scope
The Plasticity of Materials book series summarizes foundational knowledge and outlines recent developments in the field of materials plasticity. Featuring investigations at all scales, including experimental, constitutive modeling, and numerical approaches for governing equations, each volume in the series aims to provide vision, insight, and solutions to fundamental and applied problems as well as unifying multi-scale approaches. It covers a broad range of content in mechanics, material sciences, manufacturing, mechanical, automotive, civil, environmental, mining, and petroleum engineering for an array of audiences including students, researchers, and professional engineers.
Academic researchers in materials science and mechanical engineering (postgraduate and beyond) seeking an authoritative and comprehensive review of relevant research in their field. R&D engineers in industry, dealing with plasticity in design and manufacturing, or aiming to expand usability in new challenging applications or harsh environments. Secondary markets include ancillary fields such as environmental science (plasticity of rocks, soils, and granular materials).
