The theory of plasticity is a branch of solid mechanics that investigates the relationship between permanent deformation and load, and the distribution of stress and strains of materials and structures beyond their elastic limit. Engineering plasticity underpins the safety of many modern systems and structures. Realizing the full potential of materials as well as designing precise metal processing and energy absorption structures requires mastery of engineering plasticity. Introduction to Engineering Plasticity: Fundamentals with Applications in Metal Forming, Limit Analysis and Energy Absorption presents both fundamental theory on plasticity and emphasizes the latest engineering applications. The title combines theory and engineering applications of plasticity, elaborating on problem solving in real-world engineering tasks such as in metal forming, limit analysis of structures, and understanding the energy absorption of structures and materials. The five main parts of the book cover: Plastic properties of materials and their characterization; Fundamental theory in plasticity; Elastic-plastic problems and typical solutions; and Rigid-plastic problems under plane-stress conditions. This title provides students and engineers alike with the fundamentals and advanced tools needed in engineering plasticity.
