Illustrated text provides a full exposition of fundamentals of solid mechanics and principles of mechanics, statics, and simple statically indeterminate systems, plus strain and stress in three-dimensional solids, more. 1965 edition.
This expanded second edition presents in one text the concepts and processes covered in statics and mechanics of materials curricula following a systematic, topically integrated approach. Building on the novel pedagogy of fusing concepts covered in traditional undergraduate courses in rigid-body statics and deformable body mechanics, rather than simply grafting them together, this new edition develops further the authors’ very original treatment of solid mechanics with additional figures, an elaboration on selected solved problems, and additional text as well as a new subsection on viscoelasticity in response to students’ feedback. Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Approach, Second Edition, offers a holistic treatment of the depth and breadth of solid mechanics and the inter-relationships of its underlying concepts. Proceeding from first principles to applications, the book stands as a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Approach presents for the first time in one text the concepts and processes covered in statics and mechanics of materials curricula following a granular, topically integrated approach. Since the turn of the millennium, it has become common in engineering schools to combine the traditional undergraduate offerings in rigid-body statics (usually called “statics”) and deformable body mechanics (known traditionally as “strength of materials” or, more recently, “mechanics of materials”) into a single, introductory course in solid mechanics. Many textbooks for the new course sequentially meld pieces of existing, discrete books--sometimes, but not always, acknowledging the origin--into two halves covering Statics and Mechanics of Materials. In this volume, Professors Lubliner and Papadopoulos methodically combine the essentials of statics and mechanics of materials, illustrating the relationship of concepts throughout, into one "integrated" text. Introduction to Solid Mechanics: An Integrated Perspective offers a holistic treatment of the depth and breadth of solid mechanics, proceeding from first principles to applications.
This book presents the foundations and applications of statics and mechanics of materials by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics—especially through the use of free body diagrams. It also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format in examples. The authors further include design and computational examples that help integrate these ABET 2000 requirements. Chapter topics include vectors, forces, systems of forces and moments, objects in equilibrium, structures in equilibrium, centroids and centers of mass centroids, moments of inertia, measures of stress and strain, states of stress, states of strain and the stress-strain relations, axially loaded bars, torsion, internal forces and moments in beams, stresses in beams, deflections of beams, buckling of columns, energy methods, and introduction to fracture mechanics. For civil/aeronautical/engineering mechanics.
An explanation of the basic theory of engineering mechanics for mechanical, civil, and materials engineers. The presentation is concise and geared to more mathematically-oriented students and those looking to quickly refresh their understanding of engineering mechanics.

This thesis considers the numerical simulation of a variety of phenomena, particularly rigid bodies, deformable bodies, and incompressible fluids. We consider each of these simulations types in isolation, addressing challenges specific to each. We also address the problem of monolithic two-way coupling of each of these phenomena. First we address the stability of rigid body simulation with large time steps. We develop an energy correction for orientation evolution and another correction for collisions. In practice, we have found these two corrections to be sufficient to produce stable simulations. We also explore a simple scheme for rigid body fracture that is as inexpensive as prescoring rigid bodies but more flexible. Next we develop a method for simulating deformable but incompressible solids. Many constitutive models for deforming solids, such as the neo-Hookean model, break down in the incompressible limit. Simply enforcing incompressibility per tetrahedron leads to locking, where the mesh non-physically resists deformation. We present a method that uses a pressure projection similar to what is commonly used to simulate incompressible solids and apply it to deforming solids. We also address the complications that result from the interaction of this new force with contacts and collisions. Then, we turn to two coupling problems. The first problem is to couple deformable bodies to rigid bodies. We develop a fully-unified time integration scheme, where individual steps like collisions and contact are each fully two-way coupled. The resulting coupling scheme is monolithic with fully coupled linear systems. This leads to a robust and strongly coupled simulation framework. We use state-of-the-art integrators for rigid bodies and deformable bodies as the basis for the coupling scheme and maintain the ability to handle other phenomena, such as articulation and controllers on the rigid bodies and incompressibility on the deformable bodies. We follow this up by developing a scheme for coupling solids to incompressible fluids. The method handles both deformable bodies and rigid bodies. Unlike many existing methods for fluid structure interaction, which often typically lead to indefinite linear systems, the developed scheme results in a symmetric and positive definite (SPD) linear system. In addition to strongly coupling solids and fluids, the method also strongly couples viscosity with fluid pressure. This allows it to accurately treat simulations with high viscosity or where the primary coupling between solid and fluid is through fluid viscosity rather than fluid pressure. The method can be interpreted as a means of converting symmetric indefinite KKT systems with a particular form into SPD systems. Finally, we propose a method for applying implicit Lagrangian forces to an Eulerian Navier-Stokes simulation. We utilize the SPD framework to produce an SPD system with these implicit forces. We use this method to apply implicit surface tension forces. This implicit surface tension treatment reduces the tight time step restriction that normally accompanies explicit treatments of surface tension.
