The proposed is an updated edition of a book that presents a classic approach to engineering elasticity. Lead author Art Boresi is considered one of the best authors in engineering mechanics alive today and has a number of well respected books to his credit. The classic approach taken will be enhanced in this revision based on both the authors plans and their acceptance of reviewer comments asking for more coverage of "modern" subjects and applications such as nano- and biomechanical elsaticity. Co-author Ken Chong at the NSF has proposed adding a third author, Wing K. Liu, from Northwestern University to help in this effort. They will also work to add more engineering applications and examples to supplement their more theoretical coverage. As with the second edition as solutions manual will be available on the instructor's companion site.
