- Springer 2013; US$ 179.00
This overview of the development of continuum mechanics throughout the twentieth century is unique and ambitious. Utilizing a historical perspective, it combines an exposition on the technical progress made in the field and a marked interest in the role played by remarkable individuals and scientific schools and institutions on a rapidly evolving social... more...
- Springer 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...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 141.00
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...
- Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 135.95
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... more...
- Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 119.00
Conceptually speaking, common continuum mechanics in the sense of Newton - which gives rise to the notion of spatial (mechanical) forces - considers the response to variations of spatial placements of "physical particles" with respect to the ambient space. This book covers theoretical and numerical developments in the mechanics of material... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 219.00
In their 1909 publication "Theorie des corps deformables", Eugene and Francois 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... more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 159.00
The volume presents recent developments in the theory of defects and the mechanics of material forces. This is a spin-off from the International Journal of Fracture and most of the contributions were presented at the International Symposium on Defect and Material Forces (ISDMM2007), held in Aussois, France, March 25-29, 2007. The mechanics of material... more...
- Springer 2011; US$ 179.00
This collection on auMechanics of Generalized Continua - from Micromechanical Basics to Engineering Applications" brings together leading scientists in this field from France, Russian Federation, and Germany. The attention in this publication is be focussed on the most recent research items, i.e., - new models, - application of well-known models... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 178.00
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...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 175.00
This book shows the advanced methods of numerical simulation of waves and fronts propagation in inhomogeneous solids and introduces related important ideas associated with the application of numerical methods for these problems. Great care has been taken throughout the book to seek a balance between the thermomechanical analysis and numerical techniques.... more...
