This book focuses on the plastic property of materials, and the way in which structures made of such material behave under load. It is intended for civil, mechanical, electromechanical, marine, and aeronautical engineers for undergraduate or postgraduate courses or research, and professionals in industry. Professor Calladine, from long experience in teaching, research and industry, here delivers a readable and authoritative account of theory and applications. He presents the classical "perfect plasticity material" as a model of irreversible mechanical behavior, using this perfect plasticity property to analyze a range of continuum structural problems and metalforming processes relevant to engineering practice.
Contents: Introduction; Specification of an ideal plastic material; Features of elastic plastic structures; Theorems of plastic theory; Rotating discs; Torsion; Indentation problems; Introduction to slipline fields; Circular plates under transverse loading; Metalforming processes: Wire drawing and extrusion; Effects of changes in geometry; Wider scope of plastic theory and design
Appendices: The Mohr circle of stress; Virtual work; Corresponding loads and deflections; Proportional loading; Notation for 3D stress; Symbols, units and conversion factors; Answers to the problems

This book delivers a fundamental coverage for senior undergraduates and postgraduates reading structural engineering, and researchers in industrial and academia. Reinforced with many examples of a practical nature, it discusses methods for structural analysis based on basic static, kinematics and energy methods.
The chapter addressing calculation of deformations provides a thorough understanding of structural behaviour. Considerable attention is given to engineering applications derived from theoretical analyses, reinforced by worked examples which include the design of a simple bridge by methods from the book.
The finite element as an extension of the displacement method is covered, but only to explain computer methods presented by use of the structural analysis package OCEAN. An innovative approach enables influence lines calculations in a far simpler manner than by any previously know method. Basic algebra given in the appendices provides the necessary mathematical tools to understand the text.
Both authors have drawn on their considerable teaching and industrial experience in the treatment of the subject, which will convey the reality of problems engineers will face throughout their working life.
