Continuum mechanics

  • Continuum Mechanicsby Myron B. Allen

    Wiley 2015; US$ 99.95

    Presents a self-contained introduction to continuum mechanics that illustrates how many of the important partial differential equations of applied mathematics arise from continuum modeling principles Written as an accessible introduction, Continuum Mechanics: The Birthplace of Mathematical Models provides a comprehensive foundation for mathematical... more...

  • Dynamics of Pre-Strained Bi-Material Elastic Systemsby Surkay Akbarov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book deals with dynamics of pre-stressed or pre-strained bi-material elastic systems consisting of stack of pre-stressed layers, stack of pre-stressed layers and pre-stressed half space (or half plane), stack of pre-stressed layers as well as absolute rigid foundation, pre-stressed compound solid and hollow cylinders and pre-stressed sandwich... more...

  • Numerical Simulation of Mechatronic Sensors and Actuatorsby Manfred Kaltenbacher

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 139.00

    The third edition of this book combines physical modeling of mechatronic systems with precise numerical simulation using the Finite Element method. Includes enhanced discussion of principles and methods, and new chapters on acoustic fields and flow fields. more...

  • Mathematical Models of Viscous Frictionby Paolo Buttà; Guido Cavallaro; Carlo Marchioro

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99

    In this monograph we present a review of a number of recent results on the motion of a classical body immersed in an infinitely extended medium and subjected to the action of an external force. We investigate this topic in the framework of mathematical physics by focusing mainly on the class of purely Hamiltonian systems, for which very few results... more...

  • 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...

  • Advanced Mechanics of Continuaby Karan S. Surana

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 139.95

    Explore the Computational Methods and Mathematical Models That Are Possible through Continuum Mechanics Formulations Mathematically demanding, but also rigorous, precise, and written using very clear language, Advanced Mechanics of Continua provides a thorough understanding of continuum mechanics. This book explores the foundation of... 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...
