, a Stress-and-Strain Approach, Walter D. Pilkey and Pin Yu Chang, 1978, which gives lots of worked examples. But this is not required to use most of the ready-made stress/strain formulations
on the engineering stress-strain curve (as opposed to true stress-strain curve) beyond which the material begins deformation that cannot be reversed upon removal of the loading. Ultimate strength refers to the point

The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because it is not a stand alone text. Aside from stress/strain theories and general planar analysis (Mohr's circle relations
