Continuum mechanics

Most popular at the top

  • Continuum Mechanicsby Antonio Romano; Addolorata Marasco

    Springer 2010; US$ 149.00

    This book offers a broad overview of the potential of continuum mechanics to describe a wide range of macroscopic phenomena in real-world problems. Building on the fundamentals presented in the authors' previous book, Continuum Mechanics using Mathematica(R), this new work explores interesting models of continuum mechanics, with an emphasis on... more...

  • Mechanics of Generalized Continuaby Gerard A. Maugin; Andrei V. Metrikine

    Springer 2010; US$ 189.00

    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...

  • Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics and Large Inelastic Deformationsby Yuriy I. Dimitrienko

    Springer 2010; US$ 229.00

    This book provides a rigorous axiomatic approach to continuum mechanics under large deformation. In addition to the classical nonlinear continuum mechanics - kinematics, fundamental laws, the theory of functions having jump discontinuities across singular surfaces, etc. - the book presents the theory of co-rotational derivatives, dynamic deformation... more...

  • Mechanics and Electrodynamics of Magneto- and Electro-elastic Materialsby Raymond W. Ogden; David J. Steigmann

    Springer 2011; US$ 169.00

    This volume presents a state-of-the-art overview of the continuum theory of both electro- and magneto-sensitive elastomers and polymers, which includes mathematical and computational aspects of the modelling of these materials from the point of view of material properties and, in particular, the 'smart-material' control of their mechanical... more...

  • Non-linear Continuum Theoriesby Giuseppe Grioli; C. Truesdell

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    This title includes: B. Coleman, M.E. Gurtin: Thermodynamics and wave propagation in Elastic and Viscoelastic media; L. De Vito: Sui fondamenti della meccanica di sistemi continui (II); G. Fichera: Problemi elastostatici con ambigue condizioni al contorno; G. Grioli: Sistemi a trasformazioni reversibili; W. Noll: the foundations of mechanics; R.A.... more...

  • Computational Mechanics of Discontinuaby Antonio A. Munjiza; Earl E. Knight; Esteban Rougier

    Wiley 2011; US$ 140.00

    Mechanics of Discontinua is the first book to comprehensively tackle both the theory ofthis rapidly developing topic and the applications that span a broad field of scientific and engineering disciplines, from traditional engineering to physics of particulates, nano-technology and micro-flows. Authored by a leading researcher who has been at the cutting... more...

  • Numerical Continuum Mechanicsby Vladimir N. Kukudzhanov; Alexei Zhurov

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 210.00

    This work focuses on computational methods in continuum thermomechanics. The text is based on the author's lectures, which ensures a didactical and coherent buildup.The main emphasis is put on the presentation of ideas and qualitative considerations, illustrated by specific examples and applications. Conditions and explanations that are essential for... more...

  • Classical Mechanics with Mathematica®by Antonio Romano

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    This textbook takes a broad yet thorough approach to mechanics, aimed at bridging the gap between classical analytic and modern differential geometric approaches to the subject.ai Developed by the author from 35 years of teaching experience, the presentation is designed to give students an overview of the many different models used through the history... more...

  • MECHANICS OF CONTINUOUS MEDIA (IN 2 VOLS)by L.I. Sedov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 290.00

    This volume is written by Academician Sedov who is considered by many as the leading scientist in mechanics in the USSR. This latest fourth edition helps the reader in a relatively short time to master and acquire fully the essence of many geometrical and mechanical theories. more...

  • Special Functions of Mathematical (Geo-)Physicsby Willi Freeden; Martin Gutting

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Special functions enable us to formulate a scientific problem by reduction such that a new, more concrete problem can be attacked within a well-structured framework, usually in the context of differential equations. A good understanding of special functions provides the capacity to recognize the causality between the abstractness of the mathematical... more...
