  • Questions About Elastic Wavesby Jüri Engelbrecht

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99

    This book addresses the modelling of mechanical waves by asking the right questions about them and trying to find suitable answers. The questions follow the analytical sequence from elementary understandings to complicated cases, following a step-by-step path towards increased knowledge. The focus is on waves in elastic solids, although some examples... more...

  • Evaluierung der linearen und nichtlinearen Stabstatik in Theorie und Softwareby Gü Lumpe; nter; Volker Gensichen

    Wiley 2014; US$ 47.95

    Der Entwurf eines Tragwerks ist heute ohne den Einsatz moderner Software nicht mehr vorstellbar. Umfangreiche Überprüfungen von Stabtheorie und Berechnungsergebnissen durch die Verfasser belegen, dass der EDV-gestützte Entwurf eines Tragwerks grob fehlerhaft sein kann. Das vorliegende Buch klärt die Frage, wie wirklichkeitsnah... more...

  • Symmetric Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for 1-D Wavesby Aurora Marica; Enrique Zuazua

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 54.99

    This work describes the propagation properties of the so-called symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (SIPG) approximations of the 1-d wave equation. This is done by means of linear approximations on uniform meshes. First, a careful Fourier analysis is constructed, highlighting the coexistence of two Fourier spectral branches or spectral... more...

  • Wave Propagation in Elastic Solidsby J. D. Achenbach; H. A. Lauwerier; W. T. Koiter

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Wave Propagation in Elastic Solids focuses on linearized theory and perfectly elastic media. This book discusses the one-dimensional motion of an elastic continuum; linearized theory of elasticity; elastodynamic theory; and elastic waves in an unbounded medium. The plane harmonic waves in elastic half-spaces; harmonic waves in waveguides; and forced... more...

  • Free Vibrations of Circular Cylindrical Shellsby Anthony E. Armenàkas; Denos C. Gazis; George Herrmann

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Free Vibrations of Circular Cylindrical Shells deals with thin-walled structures that undergo dynamic loads application, thereby resulting in some vibrations. Part I discusses the treatment of problems associated with the propagation of plane harmonic waves in a hollow circular cylinder. In such search for solutions, the text employs the framework... more...

  • Elastic Wave Propagationby F. McCarthy; M. Hayes

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    This volume contains a timely collection of research papers on the latest developments in the ever-increasing use of elastic waves in a variety of contexts. There are reports on wave-propagation in various types of media: in both isotropic and anisotropic bodies; in homogeneous and inhomogeneous media; in media with cracks or inclusions in random media;... more...

  • Vibration in Continuous Mediaby Jean-Louis Guyader

    Wiley 2013; US$ 268.00

    Three aspects are developed in this book: modeling, a description of the phenomena and computation methods. A particular effort has been made to provide a clear understanding of the limits associated with each modeling approach. Examples of applications are used throughout the book to provide a better understanding of the material presented. more...

  • Oscillations and Wavesby Richard Fitzpatrick

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 71.95

    Bridging lower-division physics survey courses with upper-division physics courses, Oscillations and Waves: An Introduction develops a unified mathematical theory of oscillations and waves in physical systems. Emphasizing physics over mathematics, the author includes many examples from discrete mechanical, optical, and quantum mechanical systems;... more...

  • Wave Propagation in Elastic Solidsby Jan Achenbach

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    The propagation of mechanical disturbances in solids is of interest in many branches of the physical scienses and engineering. This book aims to present an account of the theory of wave propagation in elastic solids. The material is arranged to present an exposition of the basic concepts of mechanical wave propagation within a one-dimensional setting... more...

  • The Theory of Elastic Waves and Waveguidesby J. Miklowitz

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    The primary objective of this book is to give the reader a basic understanding of waves and their propagation in a linear elastic continuum. The studies of elastodynamic theory and its application to fundamental value problems should prepare the reader to tackle many physical problems of general interest in engineering and geophysics, and of particular... more...
