Item description for Classical and Computational Solid Mechanics (Advanced Series in Engineering Science) by Y. C. Fung & Pin Tong...
Written for engineers and engineering scientists, this book gives first priority to the formulation of problems, presenting the classical results as the gold standard, and the numerical approach as a tool for obtaining solutions. The classical part is a revision of the text "Foundations of Solid Mechanics", with a much-expanded discussion on the theories of plasticity and large elastic deformation with finite strains. The computational part is all new and aims to solve major linear and nonlinear boundary-value problems.

The authors are very keen on this area. The book is suite for the researcher.
Fung's Solid Mechanics Jan 22, 2007
I was an acquaintance of Professor Y.C. "Burt" Fung when he wrote his classic Solid Mechanics book - "Foundations of Solid Mechanics." He had just left Cal Tech to work in the field of Biomechanics at UC San Diego. This book contains much of the same material, updated to the present time, with very nice historical writings about the founders of Solid Mechanics. This is an excellent reference for anyone that considers themself a solid mechaniker.
Elasticity reference Jan 4, 2007
I found it to be an excellent reference for Elasticity and Inelasticity material. It is a good addition to my library.
Bible for solid mechanics Dec 16, 2002
A great bible in solid mechanics created by 2 excellent masters from China, which have fundamantal contributions to contemperary mechanics and FEM. In first part, you will read the complete methodology in classic solid mech. While in second part, the outline of FEM has been demonstrated clearly.
