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...

  • Mechanics of Anisotropic Materialsby Jacek J. Skrzypek; Artur W Ganczarski

    Springer International Publishing 2015; Not Available

    The book is focused on constitutive description of mechanical behaviour of engineering materials: both conventional (polycrystalline homogeneous isotropic or anisotropic metallic materials) and non-conventional (heterogeneous multicomponent anisotropic composite materials). Effective material properties at the macro-level depend on both the material... more...

  • Elastic/Plastic Discs Under Plane Stress Conditionsby Sergey Alexandrov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This Volume presents a unified approach to calculate the plane stress distribution of stress and strain in thin elastic/plastic discs subject to various loading conditions. There is a vast amount of literature on analytical and semi-analytical solutions for such discs obeying Tresca?s yield criterion and its associated flow rule. On the other hand,... more...

  • Experimental Stress Analysis for Materials and Structuresby Alessandro Freddi; Giorgio Olmi; Luca Cristofolini

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book summarizes the main methods of experimental stress analysis and examines their application to various states of stress of major technical interest, highlighting aspects not always covered in the classic literature. It is explained how experimental stress analysis assists in the verification and completion of analytical and numerical models,... 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...
