Mechanics of Laminated Composite Plates and Shells: Theory by J. N. Reddy

By J. N. Reddy

I actually get pleasure from solid engineering books, and this can be the best i have learn. The ebook covers all points of laminiated composite plates, from easy tensor math and anisotropic elasticity, to nonlinear and finite aspect research. the fabric is gifted in an entire and intensely readible method that makes the topic look much less daunting than different texts i've got used.

The textual content assumes that the reader has a prevalent engineering-math history: differential equations, vector calculus and a few linear algebra. past this easy history, math that's indroduced within the ebook is definitely defined, and derivations very whole and simple to stick with. I really beloved the succinct creation to variational equipment utilized in mechanics. numerous laminated plate theories are provided. additionally, rather a lot past uncomplicated tension are pointed out (hygrothermal, electro (piezo), thermal, etc.)

I stumbled on this e-book to be even more approachable than books like, say, Timoshenko's concept of Plates and Shells.
