- Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 231.00
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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 180.00
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...
- Elsevier Science 1988; US$ 72.95
This volume is a thorough introduction to contemporary research in elasticity, and may be used as a working textbook at the graduate level for courses in pure or applied mathematics or in continuum mechanics. It provides a thorough description (with emphasis on the nonlinear aspects) of the two competing mathematical models of three-dimensional elasticity,... 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...

Reflecting new developments in the study of Saint-Venant?s problem, Classical and Generalized Models of Elastic Rods focuses on the deformation of elastic cylinders for three models of continuum: classical elastic continuum, Cosserat elastic body, and porous elastic material. The author presents a method to construct Saint-Venant?s solutions,... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 319.00
This invaluable treatise belongs to the cultural heritage of mechanics. It is an encyclopaedia of the classic and analytic approaches of continuum mechanics and of many domains of natural science. The book is unique also because an impressive number of methods and approaches it displays have been worked out by the author himself. In particular, this... more...
