This is one of the best concise reference for a wide variety of topics in soild mechanics. The authour
covers the most fundamental and important topics and this can be a helpful reference to anyone
right from a begineer to advanced level researchers. The Maple and Matlab FEM codes
accompanying the chapters are wonderful and illustrate the concepts in a very good way thus
encouraging budding researchers to understand those topics by practicing them using an FEM
code. A very well written text.
I had Prof. Bower as my primary instructor for a freshman engineering course in dynamics and
vibrations, and his clarity in lectures most certainly comes through in this textbook. It covers an
absurd range of topics (I've taken graduate level courses in continuum, elasticity, and plasticity since
then, and they each cover about as much material as one or two chapters of this book) in great
detail as well. Though this book may not be for college students just starting in engineering, I can
most certainly recommend it for mechanical engineers at the advanced undergraduate and graduate
levels. If you are doing any coursework into the theory of mechanics, don't hesitate to get this; it has
been one amazing reference work. After all, there is a reason why engineering professors at some
of the top programs in the nation use this text with their courses.
I am using this book to teach a solid mechanics course. The book style is as if someone has put his
powerpoint lectures together and made a book. Many important subjects which need to be
discussed in detail have been just mentioned in multiple bullets with very short statements. For
example, the author does not prove the strain compatibility equations and just mentions them
without even discussing intuitively or mathematically why we need those equations. Another
example is Von Mises criterion which is not only not proved from shear strain energy point of view
but also not well explained and compared to other models such as Tresca's criterion. There are
many many other examples as such in this book which I think makes it improper to use as a
textbook. The only good thing about the book is the fact that it contains a lot of material and it is very
likely that you can find a formula which you do not remember in it. However, if you do not remember
a topic you better look it up in other books.

i'm a graduate major in engineering mechanics, i've studied elastic and plastic mechanics. while i
don't think that i have a good understanding of this discipline and maybe "this great "book will help
me a lot. and this is my email adress:mvpsion@sjtu.edu.cn, could you sent me a copy? thank u
very much!
I confess that the title is mostly a shameless attempt at visibility... All the obvious titles in solid
mechanics are taken  a Google search for `applied mechanics of solids' turned up nothing,
however. And of course it is always good to have a title start with A (although Advanced Mechanics
of Solids will still come out on top...). Perhaps I should have gone with Abysmal solid mechanics?
I have been reading the text EN 175 and other course notes by prof. Bower for some time.
According to above comments and my opinion, the text is not only "Basic" but also many "practice
problems", moreover the text is "encyclopedic textbook", the name of book would be: "Solid
Mechanics: Comprehensive Theory and Applications" or inverse order " Comprehensive Theory and
Applications of Solid Mechanics", start with "C" is also good !!
Another thing. Personally, I would have loved to have these notes/book in the TeX format. I do not
necessarily mean for free. I mean, you could sell a CD or an Internet subscription or so (say, like a
shareware or through PayPal), but with a TeX formatted textthat would have made it easier for the
user to import the equations. It would have provided a real convenience...
I am sorry about your difficulties with printing. I am aware of this problem, and have tried various
things to fix it, but web authoring tools do not have an easy way to control how a page looks when it
is printed. You are right that there are some reasons why making the site easy to print has not been
a high priority.
pdf or prn is very easy for people to copy and edit. I have run into cases where people have
downloaded something from one of our web sites, gone to the trouble of stripping off all references
to Brown, and circulated it to students as their own work. Perhaps I am more upset by this kind of
thing than I should be, but if there is anything I can do to make it more difficult, I will do so.
I hope to perhaps help people who really hate reading electronic pages by arranging to print copies
of the text. These can be properly formatted, with an index, etc. Preliminary searches suggest that a
printondemand publisher can make a B&W copy available for less than $30 (color is more
difficult/expensive but I am still looking). If anyone has experience with this kind of thing or
recommendations for a print service I would be interested to hear from them. I would also be
interested to know if people would really want a printed & bound version, and if so, whether they
care about colorvB&W, as this will help to decide whether it is worth doing.
Your suggestion of a TeX version is interesting  it never occurred to me that anyone would want
tex versions of the equations. Perhaps we should just do a CD containing `famous equations in
solid mechanics' that people could copy... Unfortunately there is no easy way to convert my files to
Tex  although the equations can be saved in TeX format, every one would have to be individually
opened and saved  so it is unlikely that I will be the one to make this CD but it is an interesting
thought.
personally, I would love to get a pdf file(s) and read it offline or print it. It's not that people hate
reading from the screen  some commute by train and have time to read there (like myself), some
just can't read from screen without getting a headache and others may still have a slow or an
expensive internet connection especially in non western countries. There could be many other
reasons.
The book will surely evolve to a lasting institution by itself. Allen is young and passionate about
telling a great story of a worthy subject. The words "applied", "solid" and even "textbook" may all
prove to be too restrictive. What is significant is that Allen Bower is teaching Mechanics. We will
watch a great project unfold in coming decades.
Dear Zhigang and Yanfei  It is an honor to be considered for imechanica immortality 
but maybe something like `free solid mechanics textbook' would be more helpful for a new
imechanica reader? I dont think Allan Bower is very interesting to anyone except Allan Bower  but
perhaps students joining imechanica might be interested in a free, if somewhat
errorprone, textbook. And mechanics is best named after people like Newton, Lagrange and
Hamilton...
I am so gald that people all over the world are reading Allan´s extraordinary book. I had the privilege
and pleasure of being his graduate student for 3 years. I think readers will find the book extremely
useful, especially it´s search capabilities. I seriously encourage everyone interested in solid
mechanics to familiarize themselves with this wonderful resourse and to explore the different fem
codes he kindly made available. Allan has made an invaluable contribution to this fascinating field
without seeking monetary rewards and we should all be greatful for that.
Allan Bower is a professor of engineering at Brown University, where he teaches in the
undergraduate mechanical engineering program and the graduate program in mechanics of solids.
He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Cambridge and spent a
short period on the faculty at Cambridge before joining Brown in 1992. His research involves
developing and using computer simulations to model deformation and failure in materials.
Applications of interest include modeling wear, plasticity, and contact fatigue between contacting
surfaces; fracture in composites and ceramics; and mechanical failure processes in microelectronic
circuits.
Because engineering students should understand the fundamental principles on which
finiteelement software simulation programs for stress analysis are based, this text summarizes the
physical and mathematical laws of classical solid mechanics, and gives background on solving
problems using computer simulations. The text is geared toward helping students set up properly
posed boundary and initial value problems, and avoiding physically meaningless predictions when
using computer simulations. Chapters and subchapters are designed as selfcontained modules.
Examples offer stepbystep explanations of problem solving methods. About 60 pages of reference
appendices are included. A companion web site provides 400 practice problems and demonstrations
of finite element codes in MAPLE and MATLAB. The text can be used in a senior undergraduate
course in solid mechanics for mechanical and civil engineers, and a twosemester sequence of
graduate courses on continuum mechanics and applied solid mechanics. It can also be used to
teach plasticity, fracture mechanics, linear elasticity, and finite element programming. Bower
teaches mechanical engineering at Brown University. Annotation Â©2010 Book News, Inc.,
