2."Plastic Analysis of Structures" by P G Hodge
3."Plastic Design of Steel Structures" by A Mrazik and M Tochacek
4."Stochastic Meshfree Method: For elasto-plastic Damage Analysis" by B N Rao and S M Srinivasan
“Stochastic Meshfree Method: For elasto-plastic Damage Analysis” Book Review: The book is an updated and revised piece of writing presenting the valid solution techniques for the statistics of state variables. The chapters of this book present first and second order perturbation methods, shape function method, Galerkin method, and Karhunen-Loève expansion method in order to predict mean and covariance properties of stochastic responses and random field discretization. For better understanding of the readers the solution of numerical examples are presented. The book also highlights a scaled transformation method used for essential boundary and material discontinuity treatment in EFGM.

5."Plastic Analysis of Structures" by Kumar
“Thermal Elastic-Plastic Stress Analysis of Composite Plates” Book Review: The book features the development of an analytical solution for the thermal elastic-plastic stress analysis of laminated composite plates. It presents the relation between thermal elastic- plastic stress-strain relations and boundary conditions for small plastic deformations. The chapters of this book describe the properties of elastic-perfectly plastic (ideal plastic) and linear hardening material. The book also features Tsai-Hill theory, thermoplastic laminated plates, thermal loads and residual stresses.

7."Elasto-plastic and Damage Analysis of Plates and Shells" by George Z Voyiadjis
“Elasto-plastic and Damage Analysis of Plates and Shells” Book Review: The book highlights a computational model for finite element, elasto-plastic, and damage analysis of thin and thick shells. The book begins with a vast theory of thick spherical shells and then presents shell constitutive equations. The topics like geometrically nonlinear finite element analysis, elasto-plastic geometrically nonlinear finite element analysis, nonlinear post buckling finite element analysis, transverse shear stresses, delamination are described in detail. A chapter featuring several numerical methods and computer algorithms of analysis of plates and shells is included in this text. The content of this book is illustrated with the help of pictures and diagrams.

8."Plastic Cooling During Injection Molding: Simulation, Analysis and Optimization" by Hamdy Hassan
“Plastic Cooling During Injection Molding: Simulation, Analysis and Optimization” Book Review: This book focuses on study and optimization of the cooling process during the injection molding in order to obtain optimum product quality at low cost and high production rate. The initial section of this book describes the effect of the cooling system on the heat transfer. Injection molding process, cooling and solidification of the polymer, shrinkage rate of the polymer material, and the temperature distribution through the mold and the polymer are covered in this text. The book features the effect of different process parameters on the cooling and solidification of the polymer material. The final section of the book presents improvement techniques that are used to enhance many processes during injection molding.

9."Plastic Design and Second-Order Analysis of Steel Frames" by Chen I Sohal
“Plastic Design and Second-Order Analysis of Steel Frames” Book Review: The book is an updated and revised piece of text featuring current status and future direction of computer-based analyses of inelastic strength and stability for direct frame design. The chapters of this book majorly cover topics like plastic hinge, tools used in plastic analysis and design, equilibrium method, work method, and estimate of deflections. The book consists of two clearly explained computer programs for the first-order analyses and the second-order plastic hinge analysis of planar frame design respectively. Each chapter ends with a summary and a lot of problems. The content of this book is supported by examples, illustrative figures, diagrams, tables, and graphs.
