Philip Gould, senior professor, and Yuan (Aaron) Feng, have published the fourth edition of "Introduction to Linear Elasticity." The updated textbook introduces new computational tools and examples for each chapter and provides a grounding in the tensor-based theory of elasticity for students in mechanical, civil, aeronautical and biomedical engineering, and materials and earth science.
Gould was the Harold D. Jolley Professor of Civil Engineering from 1981-2010. His research activities have centered on shell analysis with applications to finite element modeling, biomedical engineering, earthquake engineering, and the structural design of thin-shell structures. He has written numerous papers and several books and is the founding editor of the prestigious journal, Engineering Structures.
Feng is an associate professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China. He earned a master's and a doctorate in mechanical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
