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

Industry Reviews

"One of the best books on the elastic and plastic behavior of structural elements under complex stress conditions." -M. Grujicic, Clemson University; "Professors Chen and Han are to be congratulated for their quite unique contribution... a treasure on the bookshelf of those who seriously commit themselves in the study of structural plasticity" -Applied Mechanics Reviews
