Elasticity: Theory, Applications, and NumericsAlthough there are several books in print dealing with elasticity, many focus on specialized topics such as mathematical foundations, anisotropic materials, twodimensional problems, thermoelasticity, nonlinear theory, etc. As such they are not appropriate candidates for a general textbook. This book provides a concise and organized presentation and development of general theory of elasticity. This text is an excellent book teaching guide.
