An Introduction to Modern Anistropic Elasticity

K. F. Chernykh
St. Petersburg University, St. Petersburg, Russia


The author, a leading Russian authority in the field of elasticity, has obtained some fundamental results in the investigation of a number of general problems in the mechanics of solids, the theory of shells, biomechanics, and the mechanics of elastomers. Fundamental theoretical investigations were combined with the practical applications to real construction problems. This book deals with symmetry, linear anisotropic elasticity, constitutive equations, plane problems, anisotropic and reinforced shells, brittle fracture, Volterra's dislocations, etc.
