The aim of Plasticity Theory is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary state of knowledge in basic plasticity theory and to its applications. It treats several areas not commonly found between the covers of a single book: The necessary mathematics and basic mechanics and thermodynamics are covered in an introductory chapter, making the book a self-contained text suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as a reference for practitioners of solid mechanics.

I agree with John Mills review: Often a textbook provides details that are missing from lectures. Textbooks may ttheory more explanation about derivation or history of a theory so the student can improve their understanding or fill in the gaps necessarily left after a time-limited lecture. This textbook does not do this. That is disappointing and frustrating. No doubt plasticity is a difficult subject matter for many of us and this book does not add much beyond what you would get in a lecture.

Explanations of physical meaning of terms are not provided. Equations are not derived; they are simply provided. Very few example problems are worked plastidity the text. No solutions to the exercises are available so students can judge if they are able to apply the material. There is no list of symbols nor a glossary and the index is sorely lacking in comprehensiveness so defining terms or finding information is very difficult.


An example of texts that do all of this more effectively are the plasticity books written by W. Trying to visualize a yield surface? This book is of little help. As John Mills pointed out, the figures are lacking. Again, Chen does a much better job helping the novice student visualize this three-dimensional surface.

Wanting to understand limit analysis and how to apply the principles of plasgicity in this context? If you’re like me, you’ll be confused with Lubliner’s pladticity and simplified treatment of the subject and find it hard to apply to other problems.

I found Chen’s book on the subject to be more enlightening and useful. Granted, Chen’s books are not as general as Lubliner’s plasticitu I found them much more accessible, explanatory, and useful.

As a definitive text, I was very dissapointed in this book. I found it of luliner use as I struggled through a course in plasticity theory and fortunately found Chen’s books in our university library so I was able to better understand the material and visualize.

Plsaticity, I didn’t know of Chen’s books earlier in the semester. If your course requires this text I do not advise purchasing it. Professor Lubliner provides it available free on-line in pdf if you want to suffer through it [ I recommend using Chen’s books as your references for a course in plasticity theory.

Perhaps later in my career my opinion of this book will change but as a student it was very frustrating. I am most of the way through a plasticity course using this book It seems for every PAGE in lubliner, I have to research plasticify a few other books and sources to get an understanding of what he has generalized. The notation is recycled and mutilated to a point of utter confusion: As a side note: One person found this helpful. Having this book available for the price of thelry Dover book is fantastic.

This book is a must-read for anyone dealing with continuum solid mechanics. Jacob Lubliner is a very didactic writer, with no sacrifice of rigorousness.

Plus, the errata are periodically updated, and available in his website. Can’t understand anything at all.

Many have commented on the review below. I have heard men of repute say, this is a very good book. Then, there is a recurring concern — a 5-star book on the theory of plasticity is yet to be written. I believe the book has the potential for becoming the best book in plasticity ever written. What is missing in the book? Plasticity is a vast subject and my knowledge is limited. But as far as I can see, the book needs a base of the endochronic theory. Let me give you an example. The book has Prandtl-Reuss relations.


But if you take these relations and fit them with a monotonic uniaxial test, do you end up with a set of correct stress-strain relations of the theory of plasticity?

What you have is some workable curve-fit equations. Endochronic theory shows us the way. Endochronic theory is an American dream — a quest for excellence. The scope is limited, but whatever it can accomplish, that thheory the best. And, America’s students deserve the best. When the book was written, the theory was hardly there; Lubliner barely touches upon the concepts.

In s, plasficity came a young professor at Brown University. His name was D. He had a vision of plasticity. The book covers what he accomplished. I believe, the endochronic hardening rule when combined with the incremental theory of plasticity, along with a proper methods of material parameter determination, completes a portion of Drucker’s vision. A second edition of the book would be greatly appreciated by the plasticity community.

This may well be the best book on the subject in market today. In Plasticity Theory, Lubliner comes across as a teacher, a writer, and a spectator–one who has seen the field of plasticity grow. Each page of the book reflects his deep understanding of the subject.
