  • Inelastic Behavior of Materials and Structures Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loadingby Holm Altenbach; Michael Brünig

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book presents studies on the inelastic behavior of materials and structures under monotonic and cyclic loads. It focuses on the description of new effects like purely thermal cycles or cases of non-trivial damages. The various models are based on different approaches and methods and scaling aspects are taken into account. In addition to purely... more...

  • Failure and Damage Analysis of Advanced Materialsby Holm Altenbach; Tomasz Sadowski

    Springer Vienna 2014; US$ 169.00

    The papers in this volume present basic concepts and new developments in failure and damage analysis with focus on advanced materials such as composites, laminates, sandwiches and foams, and also new metallic materials. Starting from some mathematical foundations (limit surfaces, symmetry considerations, invariants) new experimental results and their... more...

  • Strength of Materials and Theory of Elasticity in 19th Century Italyby Danilo Capecchi; Giuseppe Ruta

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book examines the theoretical foundations underpinning the field of strength of materials/theory of elasticity, beginning from the origins of the modern theory of elasticity. While the focus is on the advances made within Italy during the nineteenth century, these achievements are framed within the overall European context. The vital contributions... more...

  • Deformation and Flow of Polymeric Materialsby Helmut Münstedt; Friedrich Rudolf Schwarzl

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book describes the properties of single polymer molecules and polymeric materials and the methods how to characterize them. Molar masses, molar mass distributions and branching structure are discussed in detail. These properties are decisive for a deeper understanding of structure/properties relationships of polymeric materials. This book therefore... more...

  • Deformation and Fracture of Solid-State Materialsby Sanichiro Yoshida

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 129.00

    This volume introduces a comprehensive theory of deformation and fracture to engineers and applied scientists. Here ?comprehensive? means that the theory can describe all stages of deformation from elastic to plastic and plastic to fracturing stage on the same basis (equations). The comprehensive approach is possible because the theory is based on... more...

  • Dynamik verteilter Mehrfeldsystemeby Jörg Wauer

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 4.99

    Anhand von ausführlich durchgerechneten Anwendungsbeispielen stellt Jörg Wauer Forschungsergebnisse zum Thema Mehrfeldsysteme mit Oberflächen- und Volumenkopplung prägnant dar und liefert so einen Einblick auf interdisziplinäre dynamische Systeme der Physik mit verteilten Parametern. Damit zeigt der Autor erstmalig eine wissenschaftlich exakte Behandlung... more...

  • Developments in the Flow of Complex Fluids in Tubesby Dennis A. Siginer

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 99.99

    This book is dedicated to the tube flow of viscoelastic fluids and Newtonian single and multi-phase particle-laden fluids. This succinct volume collects the most recent analytical developments and experimental findings, in particular in predicting the secondary field, highlighting the historical developments which led to the progress made. This book... more...

  • Mathematical and Computational Analyses of Cracking Formationby Yoichi Sumi

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book is about the pattern formation and the evolution of crack propagation in engineering materials and structures, bridging mathematical analyses of cracks based on singular integral equations, to computational simulation of engineering design. The first two parts of this book focus on elasticity and fracture and provide the basis for discussions... 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...

  • Durability of Reinforced Concrete from Composition to Protectionby Carmen Andrade; Joost Gulikers; Rob Polder

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book presents key advances in the modeling of reinforcement corrosion and concrete durability. It also examines various further aspects of reinforcement corrosion and concrete durability, striking a balance between modeling and testing. Particular attention is paid to innovative treatments for avoiding deterioration, and to methods for modeling... more...
