about

The book opens with a derivation of kinematically nonlinear 3-D continuum mechanics for solids.

Then the principle of virtual work is utilized to derive the simpler, kinematically linear 3-D theory and to provide the foundation for developing consistent theories of kinematic nonlinearity and linearity for specialized continua, such as beams and plates, and finite element methods for these structures.

A formulation in terms of the versatile Budiansky-Hutchinson notation is used as basis for the theories for these structures and structural elements, as well as for an in-depth treatment of structural instability.

The author's distinctive, personal style of writingcombines rigorous scientific methods and preciseresults with a relaxed pedagogical approach thatis very much a feature and an added benefit ofthis work.Curriculum Vitae for Esben Byskov March 11, 2013 1 Personal Data Born July 14, 1941 in Copenhagen.Languages: Danish and American Engl...
