Ezgi Günay graduated from the Engineering Sciences Department at the Middle East Technical University (METU, Ankara, Turkey) in 1985. She completed her Master of Science degree in 1989 at the same department. The title of her thesis was “Development of a Preprocessor and Modification of a Finite Element Procedure for the Analysis of Metal Forming Processes” (December 1989, METU). She received her PhD from the Mechanical Engineering Department at Gazi University in 1996. The title of the thesis was “A Nonlocking Finite Element Model for Nonlinear Analysis of Thin and Thick Composite Plates.” She worked as an assistant professor between 1999 and 2009 and studied academically by giving basic courses as an associate professor between 2010 and 2020 at the same department. During these years, she gave courses on the following subjects: technical drawing, FORTRAN-computer programming languages, applied mathematics for mechanical engineers, differential equations, statics, dynamics, strength of materials, introduction to numerical analysis, introduction to composite materials, introduction to finite element analysis, finite element method, plate and shell theories, and elasticity. She has authored about 40 papers published both in national and international proceedings and journals. She has written two books and has had three chapters published in international books.

In the science of physics, elasticity is the ability of a deformable body (e.g., steel, aluminum, rubber, wood, crystals, etc.) to resist a distorting effect and to return to its original size and shape when that influence or force is removed. Solid bodies will deform when satisfying forces are applied to them. Elasticity solution of materials will be grouped in forms of linear and nonlinear elasticity formulations. The main subject of this book is engineering elasticity and consists of five chapters in two main sections. These two main sections are "General Theorems in Elasticity" and "Engineering Applications in Theory of Elasticity." The first chapter of the first section belongs to the editor and is entitled "Analytical and Numerical Approaches in Engineering Elasticity." The second chapter in the first section is entitled "A General Overview of Stress-Strain Analysis for the Elasticity Equations" by P. Kumar, M. Mahanty, and A. Chattopadhyay. The first chapter of the second section is entitled "FEA and Experimental Determination of Applied Elasticity Problems for Fabricating Aspheric Surfaces" by Dr. D.N. Nguyen. The second chapter is entitled "Concept of Phase Transition Based on Elastic Systematics" by Dr. P.S. Nnamchi and Dr. C.S. Obayi. The third chapter is entitled "Repair Inspection Technique Based on Elastic-Wave Tomography Applied for Deteriorated Concrete Structures" by Dr. K. Hashimoto, Dr. T. Shiotani, Dr. T. Nishida, and Dr. N. Okude. Finally, this book includes the basic principles of elasticity and related engineering applications about theory and design.
