Solid Mechanics for Engineers introduces the basics of solid mechanics to engineers from a practical point of view. The aim is to impart understanding from both a physical and a mathematical point of view; physical mechanisms of material properties, the theory of solid mechanics, solution methodology and direct engineering applications are therefore presented as an organic whole. The book introduces the fundamental skills of mechanics modelling, so that students and engineers who have mastered the mathematics know how to apply it to solve real engineering problems. The book also demonstrates the central role of practical modelling and analytical solution in solving problems correctly and efficiently using a numerical method such as the finite element method. The materials in the book have been organised according to an approach in which engineering examples are often discussed before introducing a new concept or a new method of solution. It is expected that this way the reader may understand more directly why the theories are needed and hence become more interested in achieving a more in-depth understanding.
