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.
