This book is designed for use as a supplement to the textbook qPlasticity for Structural Engineersq by W.F. Chen and D.J. Han (Springer-Verlag, 1988) or other plasticity texts. The purpose is to help students and structural engineers learn and practice how to solve typical engineering plasticity problems in general and, more importantly, how to use computers to solve plasticity problems in structural engineering in particular. To this end, specific numerical algorithms in the computer software implementation of the theory together with actual code development are given. A number of solved and supplementary problems are provided, as well as two computer-aided-education (CAE) programs, to enhance the students' understanding of these subjects.This book is designed for use as a supplement to the textbook aquot;Plasticity for Structural Engineersaquot; by W.F. Chen and D.J. Han (Springer-Verlag, 1988) or other plasticity texts.
