A comprehensive guide to elasticity and stress concentration
Theory of Elasticity and Stress Concentration comprehensively covers elasticity and stress concentration and demonstrates how to apply the theory to practical engineering problems. The book presents a new approach to the topic without the need for complicated mathematics, and the principles and meaning of stress concentration are covered without reliance on numerical analysis.
The book consists of two parts: Part I - Theory of Elasticity and Part II - Stress Concentration. Part I treats the theory of elasticity from the viewpoint of helping the reader to comprehend the essence of it. Part II treats the principle and meaning of stress concentration and guides the reader to a better understanding of it. Throughout the book, many useful and interesting applications of the basic new way of thinking are presented and explained.
Unique approach to the topics.
Encourages the readers to acquire the new way of thinking and engineering judgement.
Includes examples, problems and solutions.
This book provides essential reading for researchers and practitioners in the structural and mechanical engineering industries.
About the Author
Since July 2006, under the auspices of the "Fundamental Research Project on Advanced Hydrogen Science", a 7-year-long project adopted by NEDO, Professor Murakami has managed and pursued research on hydrogen and material property as the project leader in collaboration with National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and is tirelessly working toward the realization of a hydrogen society. His research interests are: strength of materials; metal fatigue; fracture mechanics; hydrogen embrittlement; stress analysis; and tribology. He has published 13 books and over 400 papers. He has been a Director of the Research Center for Hydrogen Industrial Use and Storage (HYDROGENIUS), National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology since July 2006. He is currently the Special advisor to Director of International institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research (I2CNER), Kyushu University. He has lectured Strength of materials, theory of Elasticity for undergraduate courses and Fatigue and fracture for post graduate. He has supervised more than 35 PhD students.
