of Materials and Structures
This short textbook
develops a synthesis of the basic concepts needed for the analysis of the Mechanical Behaviour of Materials and Structures. After
the introduction of mathematical basics (Chapter 1), the usual tools for the analysis of the Mechanical Behaviour of Materials and Structures are considered: stresses (Chapter 2); strains (Chapter 3); the
elastic behaviour of materials (Chapter 4); the mechanics of deformable structures (Chapter 5).
