Solid Mechanics Theory and Finite Element Analysis Using ANSYS Software enables students to learn the theory adequately to determine the displacement fields, states of stress and strain in an elastic solid body when subjected to applied loads. The book is designed to teach the fundamentals of solid mechanics to undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil, mechanical, aeronautical and automobile engineering disciplines. Equal attention is given to impart in-depth knowledge and to acquire skills to solve practical problems.
- Simple and cogent style of presentation
- Text is divided into two parts, containing nine chapters for effective presentation
- Every aspect of solid mechanics is supplemented with detailed illustrations
- Special emphasis has been given on finite element analysis which offers a unified approach to numerical analysis of problems in solid mechanics
- Modeling and simulation of engineering problems using ANSYS Software
- Analytical problems for practice.
