Item description for Plasticity for Structural Engineers (J. Ross Publishing Classics) by Wai-Fah Chen & Di-jian Han...
This comprehensive text addresses the elastic and plastic behavior of general structural elements under combined stress. It sets out to examine the stress strain behaviors of materials under simple test conditions and proceeds to show how these behaviors can be generalized under combined stress. An unabridged J. Ross Publishing republication of the edition published by Springer-Verlag, New York, 1988, 606pp.Key Features: -Outlines the finite element implementation of the generalized stress-strain relations for the solution of practical steel and concrete structural problems Fully-worked examples, end-of-chapter problems, answers to selected problems, and clear illustrations and tables are provided -Important constitutive equations for structural materials and applications to steel and concrete structures -Examples of the most useful constitutive models and analytical methods

Reviews - What do customers think about Plasticity for Structural Engineers (J. Ross Publishing Classics)?
Good book at an affordable price! Mar 8, 2007
This book provides a comprehensive treatment for the plasticity and inelastic behaviors of structural members under combined stresses. It covers all aspects of plasticity for both steel and reinforced concrete structures. While structural engineers will find this book a useful reference for elastic and plastic analysis and design of framed structures, university professors will find it a good textbook for courses on plasticity and limit analysis. I am delighted to know the book is now available at an affordable price for university adoption.
Wonderful book for plasticity Mar 17, 2004
This is one of the wonderful books in plasticity. Especially the language in the book is self explanatory. Worked out examples provided in this book gives the reader a clear picture of concepts. As the title suggests, this is mainly focussed on plasticity in structures. If you are interested in plasticity in metal forming, rolling, contact etc, refer to mathematical theory of plasticity by Hill.
concepts in plasticity Jan 28, 2004
I found this book extremely helpful in getting an intutive feel to all the math used in plasticity. Specially the worked out example very nicely enforce the concepts learnt in each section before moving on to the next.
Plasticity Jun 27, 2001
For those who want to study hard the beyond-elastic-limit behavior of the materials, this book is a good choice. After an introduction to tensorial mathematics and Einstein's indicial notation, the plastic models are presented to the reader. On its first part, it is presented a general theory of plasticity for any kind of materials as metals, rocks, soils and concretes. Several examples of practical applications are given. On the second part, the study is concerned on metal plasticity and a numerical finite element approach is presented. The theory presented in this book is very complete and deeply explained, but the language in many parts is bit confuse, which makes the study more difficult. If you are looking for an introductory reading, it could be a good idea to try "Continuum Theory of Plasticity", by Akhtar S. Khan. This other one has a simpler language and more usual mathematical notation.
a fine plasticity book Nov 25, 1999
This book is one of the best plasticity books that I have read. It is pretty clear and has a lot of illuminating illustrations. It also has a good number of worked out examples to the point.
