  • Computational Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 139.00

    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$ 69.99

    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...
