INTRODUCTION

Solids and structures are stressed when they
are subjected to

or
forces
.

The
stresses

are, in general, not uniform as
the forces usually vary with coordinates.

strains
, which can be
observed as a
deformation

or
displacement
.

Statics and dynamics

Forces can be static and/or dynamic.

Statics

deals with the mechanics of solids and

Dynamics

deals with the mechanics of solids and

As statics is a special case of dynamics, the
equations for statics can be derived by simply
dropping out the dynamic terms in the dynamic
equations.

Elasticity and
p
lasticity

Elastic
:

the

deformation

in

the

solids

disappears

fully

if

it

is

.

Plastic
:

the

deformation

in

the

solids

cannot

be

fully

recovered

when

it

is

.

Elasticity

deals

with

solids

and

structures

of

elastic

materials
.

Plasticity

deals

with

solids

and

structures

of

plastic

materials
.

Isotropy and
a
nisotropy

Anisotropic
: the material property varies
with direction.

Composite materials: anisotropic, many
material constants.

Isotropic

material: property is not direction
dependent, two independent material
constants.
