Allan F. Bower This electronic text summarizes the physical laws, mathematical methods, and computer algorithms that are used to predict the response of materials and structures to mechanical or thermal loading. Topics include: the mathematical descriptions of deformation and forces in solids; constitutive laws; analytical techniques and solutions to linear elastic and elastic-plastic boundary value problems; the use and theory of finite element analysis; fracture mechanics; and the theory of deformable rods, plates and shells. The text is intended for advanced undergraduate or graduate students, as well as practicing engineers and scientists. It will be particularly useful to readers who wish to learn enough about solid mechanics to impress their teachers, colleagues, research advisors, or managers, but who would prefer not to study the subject in depth. A printed copy of the text has published by Taylor and Francis and is available from site.

Theory of FEA 8. It covers an absurd range of topics I've taken graduate level courses in continuum, elasticity, and plasticity since then, and they each cover about as much material as one or two chapters of this book in great detail as well.
Though this book may not be for college students just starting in engineering, I can most certainly recommend it for mechanical engineers at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels. If you are doing any coursework into the theory of mechanics, don't hesitate to get this; it has been one amazing reference work. After all, there is a reason why engineering professors at some of the top programs in the nation use this text with their courses. I am using this book to teach a solid mechanics course.
The book style is as if someone has put his powerpoint lectures together and made a book. Many important subjects which need to be discussed in detail have been just mentioned in multiple bullets with very short statements.
For example, the author does not prove the strain compatibility equations and just mentions them without even discussing intuitively or mathematically why we need those equations.
Another example is Von Mises criterion which is not only not proved from shear strain energy point of view but also not well explained and compared to other models such as Tresca's criterion.
There are many many other examples as such in this book which I think makes it improper to use as a textbook. The only good thing about the book is the fact that it contains a lot of material and it is very likely that you can find a formula which you do not remember in it. However, if you do not remember a topic you better look it up in other books.
Features include: The following information applies: And of course it is always good to have a title start with A although Advanced Mechanics of Solids will still come out on top Perhaps I should have gone with Abysmal solid mechanics?
I have been reading the text EN and other course notes by prof. Bower for some time. Another thing. I do not necessarily mean for free. I mean, you could sell a CD or an Internet subscription or so say, like a shareware or through PayPal , but with a TeX formatted textthat would have made it easier for the user to import the equations. It would have provided a real convenience I am aware of this problem, and have tried various things to fix it, but web authoring tools do not have an easy way to control how a page looks when it is printed.
You are right that there are some reasons why making the site easy to print has not been a high priority. These can be properly formatted, with an index, etc. If anyone has experience with this kind of thing or recommendations for a print service I would be interested to hear from them. There could be many other reasons. The book will surely evolve to a lasting institution by itself.
Allen is young and passionate about telling a great story of a worthy subject. The words "applied", "solid" and even "textbook" may all prove to be too restrictive.
What is significant is that Allen Bower is teaching Mechanics. We will watch a great project unfold in coming decades. And mechanics is best named after people like Newton, Lagrange and Hamilton I had the privilege and pleasure of being his graduate student for 3 years.
I seriously encourage everyone interested in solid mechanics to familiarize themselves with this wonderful resourse and to explore the different fem codes he kindly made available. Allan has made an invaluable contribution to this fascinating field without seeking monetary rewards and we should all be greatful for that.
Allan Bower is a professor of engineering at Brown University, where he teaches in the undergraduate mechanical engineering program and the graduate program in mechanics of solids. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Cambridge and spent a short period on the faculty at Cambridge before joining Brown in His research involves developing and using computer simulations to model deformation and failure in materials.
Applications of interest include modeling wear, plasticity, and contact fatigue between contacting surfaces; fracture in composites and ceramics; and mechanical failure processes in microelectronic circuits. Because engineering students should understand the fundamental principles on which finite-element software simulation programs for stress analysis are based, this text summarizes the physical and mathematical laws of classical solid mechanics, and gives background on solving problems using computer simulations.
The text is geared toward helping students set up properly posed boundary and initial value problems, and avoiding physically meaningless predictions when using computer simulations. Chapters and subchapters are designed as self-contained modules. Examples offer step-by-step explanations of problem solving methods.
About 60 pages of reference appendices are included.
The text can be used in a senior undergraduate course in solid mechanics for mechanical and civil engineers, and a two-semester sequence of graduate courses on continuum mechanics and applied solid mechanics. It can also be used to teach plasticity, fracture mechanics, linear elasticity, and finite element programming. It provides a concise complete introduction to the concepts, analytical techniques, and numerical methods used to analyze deformation, stress, and failure in materials or components.
The author also discusses the use of finite element software for stress analysis. Practice problems are included. Concise and broad, this book covers analyzing deformation, stress, and failure in materials or components. The author elucidates the physical and mathematical laws that govern deformation in solids, the modern constitutive equations, important analytical techniques, and solutions to important boundary and initial value problems in solid mechanics.
The book introduces commercial finite element software for stress analysis and discusses the implementation of the finite element method. Bower, CRC Press Thumbnails Document Outline Attachments.
