About the Authors
  • During the seventeenth century, several useful theories of elastic structures emerged, with applications to civil and mechanical engineering problems. Recent and improved mathematical tools have extended applications into new areas such as mathematical physics, geomechanics, and biomechanics. This book offers a critically filtered collection of the most significant theories dealing with elastic slender bodies. It includes mathematical models involving elastic structures that are used to solve practical problems with particular emphasis on nonlinear problems.

    • Presents a collection of interesting and important elasticity problems not readily available in a single source
    • Applies elasticity theory to the solution of practical engineering problems
    • Provides historical context for many problems
