Mechanics, Analytic

  • Approximating Perfectionby Leonid P. Lebedev; Michael J. Cloud

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    This is a book for those who enjoy thinking about how and why Nature can be described using mathematical tools. Approximating Perfection considers the background behind mechanics as well as the mathematical ideas that play key roles in mechanical applications. Concentrating on the models of applied mechanics, the book engages the reader... more...

  • Continuum Mechanicsby Myron B. Allen

    Wiley 2015; US$ 99.95

    Presents a self-contained introduction to continuum mechanics that illustrates how many of the important partial differential equations of applied mathematics arise from continuum modeling principles Written as an accessible introduction, Continuum Mechanics: The Birthplace of Mathematical Models provides a comprehensive foundation for mathematical... more...

  • Dynamics of Pre-Strained Bi-Material Elastic Systemsby Surkay Akbarov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book deals with dynamics of pre-stressed or pre-strained bi-material elastic systems consisting of stack of pre-stressed layers, stack of pre-stressed layers and pre-stressed half space (or half plane), stack of pre-stressed layers as well as absolute rigid foundation, pre-stressed compound solid and hollow cylinders and pre-stressed sandwich... more...

  • Mathematical Models of Viscous Frictionby Paolo Buttà; Guido Cavallaro; Carlo Marchioro

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99

    In this monograph we present a review of a number of recent results on the motion of a classical body immersed in an infinitely extended medium and subjected to the action of an external force. We investigate this topic in the framework of mathematical physics by focusing mainly on the class of purely Hamiltonian systems, for which very few results... more...

  • Inelastic Behavior of Materials and Structures Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loadingby Holm Altenbach; Michael Brünig

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book presents studies on the inelastic behavior of materials and structures under monotonic and cyclic loads. It focuses on the description of new effects like purely thermal cycles or cases of non-trivial damages. The various models are based on different approaches and methods and scaling aspects are taken into account. In addition to purely... more...

  • Fluid Mechanics of Viscoplasticityby Raja R Huilgol

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this book, we shall consider the kinematics and dynamics of the flows of fluids exhibiting a yield stress. To highlight the principal characteristics of such fluids, the first chapter emphasizes the role played by the yield stress. Next, a careful description of the continuum mechanics behind the constitutive equations for incompressible and compressible... more...

  • Auxetic Materials and Structuresby Teik-Cheng Lim

    Springer Singapore 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book lays down the foundation on the mechanics and design of auxetic solids and structures, solids that possess negative Poisson?s ratio. It will benefit two groups of readers: (a) industry practitioners, such as product and structural designers, who need to control mechanical stress distributions using auxetic materials, and (b) academic researchers... more...

  • Advanced Mechanics of Continuaby Karan S. Surana

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 139.95

    Explore the Computational Methods and Mathematical Models That Are Possible through Continuum Mechanics Formulations Mathematically demanding, but also rigorous, precise, and written using very clear language, Advanced Mechanics of Continua provides a thorough understanding of continuum mechanics. This book explores the foundation of... more...

  • Discrete Mechanicsby Jean-Paul Caltagirone

    Wiley 2014; US$ 130.00

    This book presents the fundamental principles of mechanics to re-establish the equations of Discrete Mechanics. It introduces physics and thermodynamics associated to the physical modeling.  The development and the complementarity of sciences lead to review today the old concepts that were the basis for the development of continuum mechanics.... more...

  • Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft Fibrous Materialsby Luis Dorfmann; Raymond W. Ogden

    Springer Vienna 2014; US$ 169.00

    The book presents a state-of-the-art overview of the fundamental theories, established models and ongoing research related to the modeling of these materials. Two approaches are conventionally used to develop constitutive relations for highly deformable fibrous materials. According to the phenomenological approach, a strain energy density function... more...
