This account of the theory and applications of plasticity for engineering undergraduates describes the classical "perfectly plastic material" as a modulus of irreversible mechanical behaviour. The book uses this perfect plastic property to analyse a range of continuum structural problems and metal-forming processes relevant to professional civil and mechanical engineering practice. Dr. Calladine transmits his expertise on the use of the powerful theorems of plastic theory in analysis and design, conveying his practical experience of considering the circumstances where plastic theory is appropriate. The lucid and concise text avoids complexity and is accompanied by diagrams throughout. The author has put much thought into this presentation of all the relevant topics in a most straight-forward manner.
