INTRODUCTION
Solids and structures are stressed when they
are subjected to
loads
or
forces
.
The
stresses
are, in general, not uniform as
the forces usually vary with coordinates.
The stresses lead to
strains
, which can be
observed as a
deformation
or
displacement
.
Solid mechanics
and
structural
mechanics

Statics and dynamics
Forces can be static and/or dynamic.
Statics
deals with the mechanics of solids and
structures subject to static loads.
Dynamics
deals with the mechanics of solids and
structures subject to dynamic loads.
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
unloaded
.
Plastic
:
the
deformation
in
the
solids
cannot
be
fully
recovered
when
it
is
unloaded
.
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.
