Inelasticity of Materials: An Engineering Approach and a Practical Guide

December 3, 2009

The field of materials science is unique as it encompasses areas of physics, chemistry, maths and several engineering disciplines. Although this book deals with certain special properties of materials, the mathematical content is highly substantial; thus anyone who is not from a mechanical engineering or pure maths background will find the content of this book most intimidating. The book gives a comprehensive account of the inelastic behaviour of materials; indeed, it covers all you need to know about this specialist area. The text is very chatty in its approach and is immaculately complemented by numerous worked examples and illustrations.

Who is it for? Undergraduates and postgraduates from a mechanical engineering background.

Presentation: Offers an impressive balance between text and illustrations.

Would you recommend it? Yes, but only for mechanical engineers.
