1."Elasticity and Plasticity: The Mathematical Theory of Elasticity and The Mathematical Theory of Plasticity (Dover Books on Mathematics)" by J N Goodier
“Elasticity and Plasticity: The Mathematical Theory of Elasticity and The Mathematical Theory of Plasticity (Dover Books on Mathematics)” by J N Goodier Book Review: This textbook is very informative and useful for Undergraduate and Graduate students pursuing Engineering as well as for professional engineers. This volume basically comprises two essays on the mathematical theories of elasticity and plasticity by authorities in this area of engineering science. The book majorly covers Plane stress and plane strain in the isotropic medium, holes and fillets of assignable shapes along with Conformal Mapping, reinforcement of holes, Mixed boundary Value problems. The book also incorporates fundamental problems in two dimensions, eigensolutions for plane and axisymmetric states. Moreover, a brief discussion on minimum principles of plasticity, bending of a circular plate as well as the theory of strain-hardening plastic solids is also covered in the book.

2."Strain Gradient Plasticity-Based Modeling of Damage and Fracture (Springer Theses)" by Emilio Martínez Pañeda
“Strain Gradient Plasticity-Based Modeling of Damage and Fracture (Springer Theses)” by Emilio Martínez Pañeda Book Review: This textbook introduces numerical modeling of size effects in metal plasticity. The main aim of the book is to assess fracture and damage by means of gradient plasticity models. The book further gives an insight into details of Gradient Plasticity, Numerical Implementation. The second part of the book talks about Mechanism based crack tip characterization – On fracture infinite strain gradient plasticity. The book further talks about the role of energetic and dissipative length parameters followed by Hydrogen diffusion towards the fracture process zone – SGP- Based modeling.The book has incorporated research at Various universities like Universities of Cambridge, Oviedo, Luxembourg etc.

3."Applied Plasticity, Second Edition (Mechanical Engineering Series)" by Jagabandhu Chakrabarty
“Applied Plasticity, Second Edition (Mechanical Engineering Series)” Book Review: The book focuses on various aspects of plasticity. It targets students and researchers carrying out studies in the field. Mathematical theory is covered first before diving into further complex topics such as plastic stress and its applications. Emphasis is laid on the applications of plasticity to structural analysis. Computational methods and their extension to finite-element analysis of metal-forming is also discussed. Other topics covered are dynamic plasticity, wave propagation, armour penetration and structural impact.

4."Plasticity for Engineers" by C R Calladine
Book Review: This book stresses on the plastic property of various materials as well as the structures that are made up of those materials under load conditions. This book is useful for civil, mechanical, marine and aeronautical engineers at the under graduate and post graduate courses. The book presents both theory and practical applications pertaining to metal forming analysis. The book also describes plasticity property that is used to analyses many structural problems and metal forming processes that are used in engineering.

5."Plasticity for Engineers" by C R Calladine
Book Review: This book stresses on the plastic property of materials and the methodology in which structures behave under load. This book is very useful for civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineers for courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. The author also provides detailed explanation about theory and applications. The author carries out analysis of a range of structural problems and metal forming processes thereby demonstrating the irreversible mechanical behavior.
