  • Computational Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 129.00

    Contact mechanics has its application in many engineering problems. No one can walk without frictional contact, and no car would move for the same r- son. Hence contact mechanics has, from an engineering point of view, a long history, beginning in ancient Egypt with the movement of large stone blocks, over ?rst experimental contributions from leading... more...

  • Nichtlineare Finite-Element-Methodenby Peter Wriggers

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 59.95

    Die Anwendung der Finite-Element-Methode auf nichtlineare technische Probleme hat in den letzten Jahren - auch wegen der stark angestiegenen Rechnerleistung - erheblich zugenommen. Bei nichtlinearen numerischen Simulationen sind verschiedene Aspekte zu berücksichtigen, die das Wissen und Verstehen der theoretischen Grundlagen, der zugehörigen Elementformulierungen... more...

  • Analysis and Simulation of Contact Problemsby Peter Wriggers; Udo Nackenhorst

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00

    Contact mechanics was and is an important branch in mechanics which covers a broad field of theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations. In this carefully edited book, the reader will obtain a state-of-the-art overview on formulation, mathematical analysis and numerical solution procedures of contact problems. The contributions collected... more...

  • Introduction to Computational Micromechanicsby Peter Wriggers; T.I. Zohdi

    Springer 2008; US$ 109.00

    The recent dramatic increase in computational power available for mathematical modeling and simulation promotes the significant role of modern numerical methods in the analysis of heterogeneous microstructures. This monograph presents a comprehensive introduction to computational micromechanics, including basic homogenization theory, microstructural... more...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Computational Methods in Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers; Udo Nackenhorst

    Springer 2007; US$ 159.00

    There is still room for research in computational contact mechanics, hence engineering analysis includes unilateral constraints when a detailed modelling of a problem is needed. Contact modelling within real structures includes e.g. rolling wheels, metal forming processes and car crash analysis, and is outcome of the increasing power of modern computers.... more...

  • Computational Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers; Tod A. Laursen

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Topics of this book span the range from spatial and temporal discretization techniques for contact and impact problems with small and finite deformations over investigations on the reliability of micromechanical contact models over emerging techniques for rolling contact mechanics to homogenization methods and multi-scale approaches in contact problems.... more...

  • The Aerodynamics of Heavy Vehicles IIby Peter Wriggers; Fred Browand

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    This volume present the proceedings for The Aerodynamics of Heavy Vehicles II: Trucks, Buses and Trains International Conference held in Lake Tahoe, California, August 26-31, 2007 by Engineering Conferences International (ECI). more...

  • Trends in Computational Contact Mechanicsby Giorgio Zavarise; Peter Wriggers

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    The subject of Computational Contact Mechanics has many facets. Its main impact lies in the transfer of knowledge from theoretical research to applied sciences, and from there to industry. The application fields are literally countless, ranging from classical engineering to biomechanics and nano-sciences. The remarkable increase of computer power in... more...

    This book includes different contributions that cover interdisciplinary research in the areas of: error controlled numerical methods, efficient algorithms and software development; elastic and in elastic deformation processes: and, models with multiscales and multi-physics. 'High Performance' adaptive numerical methods using finite elements... more...

  • Biomedical Technologyby Thomas Lenarz; Peter Wriggers

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    During the last years computational methods lead to new approaches that can be applied within medical practice. Based on the tremendous advances in medical imaging and high-performance computing, virtual testing is able to help in medical decision processes or implant designs. Current challenges in medicine and engineering are related to the application... more...
