As structural elements, anisotropic elastic plates find wide applications in modern technology. The plates here are considered to be subjected to not only inplane load but also transverse load. In other words, both plane and plate bending problems as well as the stretching-bending coupling problems are all explained in this book.
In addition to the introduction of the theory of anisotropic elasticity, several important subjects have are discussed in this book such as interfaces, cracks, holes, inclusions, contact problems, piezoelectric materials, thermoelastic problems and boundary element analysis.
Connects topics in a systematic approach, such as anisotropic elasticity, mechanics of composite materials and boundary element analysis, unlike previous books on this subject
Provides a collection of problem solutions for engineers and scientists to understand derivation details
