Elasticity and plasticity of large deformations. Including gradient materials. 4th edition. (English) Zbl 1462.74001

Cham: Springer (ISBN 978-3-030-72327-9/pbk; 978-3-030-72328-6/ebook). xxiv, 412 p. (2021).
Publisher’s description: This book presents an introduction to material theory and, in particular, to elasticity, plasticity and viscoelasticity, to bring the reader close to the frontiers of today’s knowledge in these particular fields. It starts right from the beginning without assuming much knowledge of the subject. Hence, the book is generally comprehensible to all engineers, physicists, mathematicians, and others. At the beginning of each new section, a brief Comment on the Literature contains recommendations for further reading.
This book includes an updated reference list and over 100 changes throughout the book. It contains the latest knowledge on the subject.
Two new chapters have been added in this new edition. Now finite viscoelasticity is included, and an Essay on gradient materials, which have recently drawn much attention.
