This ebook Linear and Non-linear Mechanical Behavior of Solid Materials (PDF) offers an essential introduction to the linear and non-linear behavior of solid materials, and to the concepts of displacement, deformation, and stress, within the context of thermodynamics and continuum mechanics. To illustrate the fundamental principles, the ebook starts with an overview of experimental methods, solid mechanics, classes of material behaviors, and the thermodynamic modeling framework. It then explores linear elastic behavior, plasticity, thermoelasticity, fracture mechanics, viscoplasticity, and damage behavior. The last part of the ebook is devoted to conventional and magnetic shape memory alloys, which may be used as sensors or actuators in adaptive structures. Given its range of coverage, the PDF ebook will be especially valuable for students of engineering courses in Mechanics. Further, it includes a wealth of examples and exercises, making it accessible to the widest possible audience.
