Index.

  • Considers most types of materials; metals, ceramics, fibered composites, concrete, biological tissue, rubber, polymers and wood.
  • Focuses on relationships between material properties of a deformable body and the forces and displacements applied to its boundary.
  • Provides reader with the ability to develop an appreciation for the approximations made in producing the mathematical models intended to predict mechanical response.
  • Historical background indicates why definitions were made and that real people invented the models for practical purposes.
