- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 159.95
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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Springer 2013; US$ 129.00
Substantial effort has been drawn for years onto the development of (possibly high-order) numerical techniques for the scalar homogeneous conservation law, an equation which is strongly dissipative in L1 thanks to shock wave formation. Such a dissipation property is generally lost when considering hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, or simply... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 128.00
This book deals systematically with the mathematical theory of plane elasto-statics by using complex variable methods, together with many results originated by the author. The problems considered are reduced to integral equations, Fredholem or singular, which are rigorously proved to be uniquely solvable. Particular attention is paid to the subjects... more...
