Continuum Mechanics and Plasticity is the first book to provide a systematic discussion of the endochronic theory of plasticity through the use of curvilinear coordinates. It covers the mathematical theory behind the field of plasticity and prepares the reader to pursue research related to the mechanical behavior of materials or to do developmental work in engineering analysis and design. With applications in both continuum mechanics and plasticity with a continuum approach, this book emphasizes methods of experimentation and analysis to help build realistic mathematical models. It also includes an important discussion on anisotropy and its applications in manufacturing processes.
