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

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 269.00

    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 elasticity, 3by Philippe G. Ciarlet

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 185.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Mathematical elasticityby Philippe G. Ciarlet

    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...

  • Mathematical Problems in Elasticity and Homogenizationby O.A. Oleinik; A.S. Shamaev; G.A. Yosifian

    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...

  • Classical and Generalized Models of Elastic Rodsby D. Iesan

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 167.95

    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...

  • Theory of Elasticityby A.I. Lurie; Alexander Belyaev

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 319.00

    The classical theory of elasticity maintains a place of honour in the science ofthe behaviour ofsolids. Its basic definitions are general for all branches of this science, whilst the methods forstating and solving these problems serve as examples of its application. The theories of plasticity, creep, viscoelas­ ticity, and failure of solids do not... more...

  • Integrodifferential Relations in Linear Elasticityby Georgy V. Kostin; Vasily V. Saurin

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00

    This work treats the elasticity of deformed bodies, including the resulting interior stresses and displacements.It also takes into account that some of constitutive relations can be considered in a weak form. To discuss this problem properly, the method of integrodifferential relations is used, and an advanced numerical technique for stress-strain... more...


    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 134.00

    This book provides a systematic and self-consistent introduction to the nonlinear continuum mechanics of solids, from the main axioms to comprehensive aspects of the theory. The objective is to expose the most intriguing aspects of elasticity and viscoelasticity with finite strains in such a way as to ensure mathematical correctness, on the one hand,... more...

  • Plasticityby Weimin Han; Daya Reddy

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 129.00

    In its revised and expanded second edition, this book examines the theoretical aspects of small strain theory of elastoplasticity with hardening assumptions, offering a comprehensive and unified treatment of mathematical theory and numerical analysis. more...
