  • Analysis and Simulation of Multifield Problemsby Wolfgang L. Wendland; Messoud Efendiev

    Springer 2012; US$ 219.00

    The analysis and simulation of multifield problems have recently become one of the most actual and vivid areas of research. Although the individual subproblems of complex technical and physical phenomena often are understood separately, their interaction and coupling create not only new difficulties but also a complete new level and quality of interacting... more...

  • The Inverse Variational Problem in Classical Mechanicsby J. Lopuszanski

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 154.00

    This book provides a concise description of the current status of a fascinating scientific problem — the inverse variational problem in classical mechanics. The essence of this problem is as follows: one is given a set of equations of motion describing a certain classical mechanical system, and the question to be answered is: Do these equations... more...

  • Advanced Mechanicsby S. G. Rajeev

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 43.99

    Classical Mechanics is the oldest and best understood part of physics. This does not mean that it is cast in marble yet, a museum piece to be admired from a distance. Instead, mechanics continues to be an active area of research by physicists and mathematicians. Every few years, we need to re-evaluate the purpose of learning mechanics and look at old... more...

  • The Finite Element Method for Mechanics of Solids with ANSYS Applicationsby Ellis H. Dill

    CRC Press 2011; US$ 115.95

    Chapter 1: Finite Element Concepts 1.1 Introduction 1.2 Direct Stiffness Method 1.2.1 Merging the Element Stiffness Matrices 1.2.2 Augmenting the Element Stiffness Matrix 1.2.3 Stiffness Matrix Is Banded 1.3 The Energy Method 1.4 Truss Example 1.5 Axially Loaded Rod Example 1.5.1 Augmented Matrices for the Rod 1.5.2 Merge of Element Matrices for... more...

  • Contemporary Evolution Strategiesby Thomas Bäck; Christophe Foussette; Peter Krause

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Evolution strategies have more than 50 years of history in the field of evolutionary computation. Since the early 1990s, many algorithmic variations of evolution strategies have been developed, characterized by the fact that they use the so-called derandomization concept for strategy parameter adaptation. Most importantly, the covariance matrix adaptation... more...

  • Injection Technologies for the Repair of Damaged Concrete Structuresby Volodymyr Panasyuk; Valeriy Marukha; Victor Sylovanyuk

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book analyzes the most important achievements in science and engineering practice concerning operational factors that cause damage to concrete and reinforced concrete structures. It includes methods for assessing their strength and service life, especially those that are based on modern concepts of the fracture mechanics of materials. It also... more...

  • Mechanics and Electrodynamicsby L D Landau; E.M. Lifshitz

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Largely a condensed amalgamation of two previous books by the same authors - Mechanics and The Classical Theory of Fields - omitting the rather more advanced topics such as general relativity. more...

  • Body Tensor Fields in Continuum Mechanicsby Arthur S. Lodge

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Body Tensor Fields in Continuum Mechanics: With Applications to Polymer Rheology aims to define body tensor fields and to show how they can be used to advantage in continuum mechanics, which has hitherto been treated with space tensor fields. General tensor analysis is developed from first principles, using a novel approach that also lays the foundations... more...

  • An Expedition to Continuum Theoryby Wolfgang H. Müller

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book introduces field theory as required in solid and fluid mechanics as well as in electromagnetism. It includes the necessary applied mathematical framework of tensor algebra and tensor calculus, using an inductive approach particularly suited to beginners. It is geared toward undergraduate classes in continuum theory for engineers in general,... more...

  • Nonsmooth Mechanics of Solidsby Jaroslav Haslinger; Georgios E. Stavroulakis

    Springer 2007; US$ 179.00

    Mechanics have played an important role in mathematics, from infinitesimal calculus, calculus of variations, partial differential equations and numerical methods (finite elements). Originally, mechanics treated smooth objects. Technological progress has evoked the necessity to model and solve more complicated problems, like unilateral contact and friction,... more...
