An excellent source for graduate students and researchers in solid mechanics and materials science, Mechanics of Solids and Materials covers a wide range of topics. The book begins with a review of vectors, tensors, basic integral theorems, and Fourier series. In later chapters, it delves into the subjects of nonlinear continuum mechanics, elasticity, plasticity, and biomechanics. The books thorough examination of these topics makes it a definitive resource for those pursuing an advanced study of solid mechanics and materials science.

Robert J. Asaro was awarded his Ph.D. in Materials Science With Distinction from Stanford University in 1972. He was a Professor of Engineering at Brown University from 1975-1989, and at the University of California, San Diego since 1989. Professor Asaro has led programs involved with the design, fabrication, and full-scale structural testing of large composite structures including high performance ships and marine civil structures. His list of publications includes more than 170 research papers in the leading professional journals and conference proceedings. He received the NSF Special Creativity Award for his research in 1983 and 1987. Professor Asaro also received the TMS Champion H. Mathewson Gold Medal in 1991. He has made fundamental contributions to the theory of crystal plasticity and to dislocation theory. He served as a founding member of the Advisory Committee for NSF's Office of Advanced Computing that founded the Supercomputer Program in the U.S. He has also served on the NSF Materials Advisory Committee. He has been an affiliate with Los Alamos National Laboratory for over 20 years and has served as consultant to Sandia National Laboratory. Professor Asaro has been recognized by ISI as a highly cited author in Materials Science. Vlado A. Lubarda received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1980. He was a Professor at the University of Montenegro from 1980-1989, a Fulbright Fellow and Visiting Associate Professor at Brown University from 1989-1991, and at Arizona State University from 1992-1997. Since 1998, he has been an Adjunct Professor of Applied Mechanics at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Lubarda has made significant contributions to phenomenological theories of large deformation elastoplasticity, dislocation theory, damage and micromechanics, and biomechanics. He is the author of more than 100 journal and conference publications and two books: Strength of Materials (1985) and Elastoplasticity Theory (2002). He has served as a research panelist for NSF and as a reviewer for international journals of mechanics, materials science, and applied mathematics. Professor Lubarda was elected in 2000 to the Montenegrin Academy of Sciences and Arts. He is also a recipient of the 2004 Distinguished Teaching Award from the University of California.
