A E Love -Treatise on the Mathematical Theory of Elasticity

Cai Shengqiang's picture

I recommend this classic book to persons, who want to learn something more about elasticity that cannot be found in traditional books. It's a pretty valuable and inspiring book in elasticity today, although it was written by Love more than 100 years ago. It included many  impressive topics such as equilibirum of anistropic elastic solid bodies, the equilibrium of a elastic sphere, plates and shells. As far as I know, this book is frequently quoted in recent artilces. However, it will be very tough to read this book, even though you have some basic knowledge about elasticity.  I have only scanned some chapters.  Everyone should have a try.

you are here,my boy,Cai

Is there "The Experimental Foundations of Solid Mechanics"by James Bell  on WWW? I cannot find this book in Beijing, what a pity.

how can i get the  book?

Hi, E Dan, I have joined this side recently. It's in deed a fantastic web site, and I love it deeply.
