Presents certain key aspects of inelastic solid mechanics centered around viscoelasticity, creep, viscoplasticity, and plasticity. It is divided into three parts consisting of the fundamentals of elasticity, useful constitutive laws, and applications to simple structural members, providing extended treatment of basic problems in static structural mechanics, including elastic and inelastic effects. It contains worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems.
