Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Approach presents for the first time in one text the concepts and processes covered in statics and mechanics of materials curricula following a granular, topically integrated approach. Since the turn of the millennium, it has become common in engineering schools to combine the traditional undergraduate offerings in rigid-body statics (usually called "statics") and deformable body mechanics (known traditionally as "strength of materials" or, more recently, "mechanics of materials") into a single, introductory course in solid mechanics. Many textbooks for the new course sequentially meld pieces of existing, discrete books--sometimes, but not always, acknowledging the origin--into two halves covering Statics and Mechanics of Materials. In this volume, Professors Lubliner and Papadopoulos methodically combine the essentials of statics and mechanics of materials, illustrating the relationship of concepts throughout, into one "integrated" text. Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Perspective offers a holistic treatment of the depth and breadth of solid mechanics, proceeding from first principles to applications.
Present concepts of statics and mechanics of materials as an integrated whole
Offers thorough presentation of fundamentals of the mechanics
of deformable solids with concepts developed to their three-dimensional aspect
Features section devoted to "simple stress states," special cases in which stress can be determined by statics alone, and stress-based design is introduced as a consequence
Discusses stress and strain transformations, including the determination of principal axes, from both the geometric and algebraic perspectives
Structured for smooth coverage of the material either as an entire text or with select chapter omissions
Includes exercises and introductory overviews in each chapter
Features over 350 illustrations
