As structural elements, anisotropic elastic plates find wide applications in modern technology. The plates here are considered to be subjected to not only inplane load but also transverse load. In other words, both plane and plate bending problems as well as the stretching-bending coupling problems are all explained in this book.

In addition to the introduction of the theory of anisotropic elasticity, several important subjects have are discussed in this book such as interfaces, cracks, holes, inclusions, contact problems, piezoelectric materials, thermoelastic problems and boundary element analysis.

From the reviews:

"This book is devoted to anisotropic elasticity, mechanics of composite materials and fracture mechanics, and connects theoretical treatment and numerical analysis. ... the book by Hwu is appropriate to be a university textbook for the course of anisotropic elasticity. ... a good reference book for the courses of plates and shells, elasticity, fracture mechanics, mechanics of composite materials. This well-written book is also a reader-friendly and good-organised handbook for engineers, textbook for students, and simultaneously is a research monograph in the field of anisotropic elasticity."--- (Igor Andrianov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1196, 2010)

"Structures, particularly those composed of composite materials, are often modeled as being composed of anisotropic elastic plates; this book is written for beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate students as well as for researchers interested in understanding such plates." (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 30, December, 2010)
