- CRC Press 2010; US$ 144.95
Exploring recent developments in continuum mechanics, Configurational Forces: Thermomechanics, Physics, Mathematics, and Numerics presents the general framework for configurational forces. It also covers a range of applications in engineering and condensed matter physics. The author presents the fundamentals of accepted standard continuum mechanics,... more...
- Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00
Conceived as a series of more or less autonomous essays, the present book critically exposes the initial developments of continuum thermo-mechanics in a post Newtonian period extending from the creative works of the Bernoullis to the First World war, i.e., roughly during first the ?Age of reason? and next the ?Birth of the modern world?. The emphasis... more...
- Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 179.00
This ambitious book offers an overview of the development of continuum mechanics throughout the last century, combining a review of technical progress with an examination of the role played by remarkable individuals and scientific schools and institutions. more...
- Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00
Mixing scientific, historic and socio-economic vision, thisunique book complements two previously published volumes on the history ofcontinuum mechanics from this distinguished author. In this volume, Gérard A.Maugin looks at the period from the renaissance to the twentieth century and heincludes an appraisal of the ever enduring competition between... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 81.00
In this invaluable book, macroscopic irreversible thermodynamics is presented in its realm and its splendor by appealing to the notion of internal variables of state. This applies to both fluids and solids with or without microstructures of mechanical or electromagnetic origin. This unmatched richness of essentially nonlinear behaviors is the result... more...
- Springer Vienna 2014; US$ 149.00
These lecture notes cover numerous elements of configurational mechanics, including mathematical foundations, linear and nonlinear elasticity and continuum mechanics, coupled fields, fracture mechanics, as well as strength of materials. more...

In their 1909 publication Théorie des corps déformables , Eugène and François Cosserat made a historic contribution to materials science by establishing the fundamental principles of the mechanics of generalized continua. The chapters collected in this volume showcase the many areas of continuum mechanics that grew out of the foundational work of... more...
- Springer US 2006; US$ 139.00
The notion dealt with in this volume of proceedings is often traced back to the late 19th-century writings of a rather obscure scientist, C. V. Burton. A probable reason for this is that the painstaking de ciphering of this author's paper in the Philosophical Magazine (Vol. 33, pp. 191-204, 1891) seems to reveal a notion that was introduced in math... more...

This unique volume presents an original approach to physical acoustics with additional emphasis on the most useful surface acoustic waves on solids. The study is based on foundational work of Léon Brillouin, and application of the celebrated invariance theorem of Emmy Noether to an element of volume that is representative of the wave motion.... more...

The interaction of acoustic fields with submerged elastic structures, both by propagation and scattering, is being investigated at various institutions and laboratories world-wide with ever-increasing sophistication of experiments and analysis. This book offers a collection of contributions from these research centers that represent the present state-of-the-art... more...
