- 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...
- Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 325.00
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...

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...
- Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 149.99
This monograph describes various methods for solving deformation problems of particulate solids, taking the reader from analytical to computational methods. A primary function of the book is the presentation of linear elasticity in a mathematical language familiar to mechanical engineers. more...
- Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 179.00
Presents a study of specific problems of nonlinear elasticity, directed toward the scientist, engineer, and mathematician who wish to see treatments of precisely formulated problems. This book places emphasis on the role of nonlinear material response, and gives a presentation of the mathematical tools from nonlinear analysis. more...

The objective of Volume III is to lay down the proper mathematical foundations of the two-dimensional theory of shells. To this end, it provides, without any recourse to any a priori assumptions of a geometrical or mechanical nature, a mathematical justification of two-dimensional nonlinear and linear shell theories, by means of asymptotic methods,... more...

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...
- Springer 2008; US$ 99.00
Offers an introduction to modern non-linear mechanics. This book presents the used mathematical tools, such as tensor algebra and analysis. It particularizes the general theory of mechanical behavior for the broad and important classes of elasticity and plasticity. more...
- Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95
This monograph is based on research undertaken by the authors during the last ten years. The main part of the work deals with homogenization problems in elasticity as well as some mathematical problems related to composite and perforated elastic materials. This study of processes in strongly non-homogeneous media brings forth a large number of purely... more...
