  • Introduction to Mathematical Elasticityby Leonid P. Lebedev; Michael J. Cloud

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 100.00

    This book provides the general reader with an introduction to mathematical elasticity, by means of general concepts in classic mechanics, and models for elastic springs, strings, rods, beams and membranes. Functional analysis is also used to explore more general boundary value problems for three-dimensional elastic bodies, where the reader is provided,... more...

  • Linear Theoryby A. Cemal Eringen; Erdogan S. Suhubi

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    Elastodynamics, Volume II: Linear Theory is a continuation of Volume I and discusses the dynamical theory of linear isotropic elasticity. The volume deals with the fundamental theorems regarding elastodynamics and the different mathematical methods of solution and their employment in one, two, and three dimensions. The text outlines the fundamentals... more...

  • The Physics of Degradation in Engineered Materials and Devicesby Jonathan Swingler

    Momentum Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Degradation is apparent in all things and is fundamental to both manufactured and natural objects. It is often described by the second law of thermodynamics, where entropy, a measure of disorder, tends to increase with time in a closed system. Things age! This concise reference work brings together experts and key players engaged in the physics of... more...

  • Elasticityby James Richard Barber

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 76.20

    Since the first edition of this book was published, there have been major improve- ? ? ments in symbolic mathematical languages such as Maple and Mathematica and this has opened up the possibility of solving considerably more complex and hence interesting and realistic elasticity problems as classroomexamples. It also enables the student to focus on... more...

  • Elasticity and Plasticity of Large Deformationsby Albrecht Bertram

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 78.27

    This book is based on the lecture notes of courses given by the author over the last decade at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg and the Technical University of Berlin. Since the author is concerned with researching material the­ ory and, in particular, elasto-plasticity, these courses were intended to bring the students close to the frontiers... more...

  • Elastoplasticity Theoryby Vlado A. Lubarda

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 243.00

    Understanding the elastoplastic deformation of metals and geomaterials, including the constitutive description of the materials and analysis of structure undergoing plastic deformation, is an essential part of the background required by mechanical, civil, and geotechnical engineers as well as materials scientists. However, most books address the subject... more...

  • Surface Modification and Mechanismsby George E. Totten; Hong Liang

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 341.00

    Leading readers through an extensive compilation of surface modification reactions and processes for specific tribological results, this reference compiles detailed studies on various residual stresses, reaction processes and mechanisms, heat treatment methods, plasma-based techniques, and more, for a solid understanding of surface structural changes... more...

  • Microstructures in Elastic Mediaby Nhan Phan-Thien; Sangtae Kim

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 169.99 US$ 146.19

    This monograph describes various methods for solving deformation problems of particulate solids, taking the reader from analytical to computational methods. The book is the first to present the topic of linear elasticity in mathematical terms that will be familiar to anyone with a grounding in fluid mechanics. It incorporates the latest advances... more...

  • Elasticity of Transversely Isotropic Materialsby Haojiang Ding; Weiqiu Chen; Ling Zhang

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 206.85

    This book aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to the theory and applications of the mechanics of transversely isotropic elastic materials. There are many reasons why it should be written. First, the theory of transversely isotropic elastic materials is an important branch of applied mathematics and engineering science; but because of the difficulties... more...

  • Mathematical elasticityby Philippe G. Ciarlet

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 230.00

    The objective of Volume II is to show how asymptotic methods, with the thickness as the small parameter, indeed provide a powerful means of justifying two-dimensional plate theories. More specifically, without any recourse to any a priori assumptions of a geometrical or mechanical nature, it is shown that in the linear case, the three-dimensional... more...
