- 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 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...
- 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...
- 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 US 2006; US$ 119.00
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...
- Springer New York 2010; US$ 219.00
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...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 124.00
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...
- Springer 2000; US$ 237.00
Contributed by world-renowned specialists on the occasion of Paul Germain's 80th birthday, this text reflects the foundational works and the intellectual influence of this author. It presents the realm of modern thermomechanics with its wealth of applications to the behaviour of materials. more...
- Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 159.00
This volume presents recent developments in the theory of defects and the mechanics of material forces. Most of the contributions were presented at the International Symposium on Defect and Material Forces (ISDMM2007), held in Aussois, France, March 2007. more...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 179.00
Mechanics of Generalized Continua comprises of contributions from leading experts from France, Russian Federation, and Germany. The text focuses on recent research such as the application of well-known models to new problems, micro-macro aspects, and more. more...
