#### Principles of Hyperplasticity

Springer 2007; US$ 239.00The approach to plasticity theory developed here is firmly rooted in thermodynamics. This book emphasises on the use of potentials and the derivation of incremental response, necessary for numerical analysis. It shows the derivation of constitutive models for irreversible behaviour from two scalar potentials. more...

#### Internal Friction of Materials

Cambridge International Science Publishing 2001; US$ 130.00The author presents important new results for the relationship between internal friction and the defect of the elasticity modulus with many principal processes such as plastic deformation, effect of temperature of plastic deformation, effects on the structural stability of alloys and composites up to cyclic microplasticity. The existence of critical... more...

#### Generalized Plasticity

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 239.00Dealing with the plasticity of materials and structures, this book is an expansion of the "Unified Strength Theory to Plasticity Theory", leading to a unified treatment of metal plasticity and plasticity of geomaterials. It includes the metal plasticity for Tresca materials, Huber-von-Mises materials and twin-shear materials. more...

#### Variational Models and Methods in Solid and Fluid Mechanics

Springer 2012; US$ 209.00Variational methods give an efficient and elegant way to formulate and solve mathematical problems that are of interest to scientists and engineers. In this book three fundamental aspects of the variational formulation of mechanics will be presented: physical, mathematical and applicative ones. The first aspect concerns the investigation of the nature... more...

#### Centrifugal Pumps and Allied Machinery

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 93.95This book will be of vital interest to all engineers and designers concerned with centrifugal pumps and turbines. Including statistical information derived from 20000 pumps and 700 turbines with capacities of 5gpm to 5000000gpm, this book offers the widest range and scope of information currently available. Statistical analyses suggest practical... more...

#### Three-Dimensional Problems of Elasticity and Thermoelasticity

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95North-Holland Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Volume 25: Three-Dimensional Problems of the Mathematical Theory of Elasticity and Thermoelasticity focuses on the theory of three-dimensional problems, including oscillation theory, boundary value problems, and integral equations. The publication first tackles basic concepts and axiomatization... more...

#### Amplification of Nonlinear Strain Waves in Solids

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 172.00This book treats two problems simultaneously: sequential analytical consideration of nonlinear strain wave amplification and selection in wave guides and in a medium; demonstration of the use of even particular analytical solutions to nonintegrable equations in a design of numerical simulation of unsteady nonlinear wave processes. The text includes... more...
