Continuum mechanics

Most popular at the top

  • 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... 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...

  • Generalized Continua - from the Theory to Engineering Applicationsby Holm Altenbach; Victor A. Eremeyev

    Springer 2012; US$ 249.00

    On the roots of continuum mechanics in differential geometry -- a review.- Cosserat media.- Cosserat-type shells.- Cosserat-type rods.- Micromorphic media.- Electromagnetism and generalized continua.- Computational methods for generalized continua.The need of generalized continua models is coming from practice. Complex material behavior sometimes cannot... more...

  • Introduction to Continuum Mechanicsby David Rubin; Erhard Krempl; W Michael Lai

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Continuum mechanics studies the response of materials to different loading conditions. The concept of tensors is introduced through the idea of linear transformation in a self-contained chapter, and the interrelation of direct notation, indicial notation and matrix operations is clearly presented. A wide range of idealized materials are considered... more...

  • Non-Classical Continuum Mechanicsby R. J. Knops; A. A. Lacey

    Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 112.00

    This volume contains a selection of the invited papers presented at a LMS Durham Symposium on modern developments in non-classical continuum mechanics. more...

  • Analysis and Simulation of Multifield Problemsby Wolfgang L. Wendland; Messoud Efendiev

    Springer 2012; US$ 219.00

    The analysis and simulation of multifield problems have recently become one of the most actual and vivid areas of research. Although the individual subproblems of complex technical and physical phenomena often are understood separately, their interaction and coupling create not only new difficulties but also a complete new level and quality of interacting... more...

  • Advanced Mechanicsby S. G. Rajeev

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 43.99

    Classical Mechanics is the oldest and best understood part of physics. This does not mean that it is cast in marble yet, a museum piece to be admired from a distance. Instead, mechanics continues to be an active area of research by physicists and mathematicians. Every few years, we need to re-evaluate the purpose of learning mechanics and look at old... more...

  • Contemporary Evolution Strategiesby Thomas Bäck; Christophe Foussette; Peter Krause

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Evolution strategies have more than 50 years of history in the field of evolutionary computation. Since the early 1990s, many algorithmic variations of evolution strategies have been developed, characterized by the fact that they use the so-called derandomization concept for strategy parameter adaptation. Most importantly, the covariance matrix adaptation... more...
