Mechanics

  • Plasticity of Pressure-Sensitive Materialsby Holm Altenbach; Andreas Öchsner

    Springer 2014;

    Classical plasticity theory of metals is independent of the hydrostatic pressure. However if the metal contains voids or pores or if the structure is composed of cells, this classical assumption is no more valid and the influence of the hydrostatic pressure must be incorporated in the constitutive description. Looking at the microlevel, metal plasticity... more...

  • Flow in Porous Rocksby Andrew W. Woods

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 88.00

    Provides simplified models explaining flows in heterogeneous rocks, their physics and energy-production processes, for researchers, energy-industry professionals and graduate students. more...

  • Aeroelastic vibrations and stability of plates and shellsby Sergey D. Algazin; Igor A. Kijko

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 238.00

    Back-action of wind onto wings causes vibrations, endangering the whole structure. By careful choices of geometry, materials and damping, hazardous effects on wind engines, planes, turbines and cars can be avoided. This book gives an overview of aerodynamics and mechanics behind these problems and describes a range of mechanical effects. Numerical... more...

  • Physical Components of Tensorsby Wolf Altman; Antonio Marmo De Oliveira

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 139.95

    Illustrating the important aspects of tensor calculus, and highlighting its most practical features, Physical Components of Tensors presents an authoritative and complete explanation of tensor calculus that is based on transformations of bases of vector spaces rather than on transformations of coordinates. Written with graduate students, professors,... more...

  • Engineering Materialsby K.M. Gupta

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 149.95

      Introduces Emerging Engineering Materials Mechanical, materials, and production engineering students can greatly benefit from Engineering Materials: Research, Applications and Advances . This text focuses heavily on research, and fills a need for current information on the science, processes, and applications in the field. Beginning... more...

  • Mathematical and Computational Analyses of Cracking Formationby Yoichi Sumi

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book is about the pattern formation and the evolution of crack propagation in engineering materials and structures, bridging mathematical analyses of cracks based on singular integral equations, to computational simulation of engineering design. The first two parts of this book focus on elasticity and fracture and provide the basis for discussions... more...

  • Essentials of Mechanical Stress Analysisby Amir Javidinejad

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 139.95

    Developed with stress analysts handling multidisciplinary subjects in mind, and written to provide the theories needed for problem solving and stress analysis on structural systems, Essentials of Mechanical Stress Analysis presents a variety of relevant topics?normally offered as individual course topics?that are crucial for carrying out the analysis... more...

  • Tribology of Interface Layersby Hooshang Heshmat

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 159.95

    To this point, the field of lubrication has been conceptualized using several noncontiguous modes of operation ? boundary, fluid-film, and dry and solid lubrication. Engineers and analysts have long had to deal with old evidence that many tribological devices, such as flat surface and centrally pivoted sliders, can act as viable bearings ? contradicting... more...

  • Mechanics of Structuresby Walter Wunderlich; Walter D. Pilkey

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 220.00

    Resoundingly popular in its first edition, the second edition of Mechanics of Structures: Variational and Computational Methods promises to be even more so, with broader coverage, expanded discussions, and a streamlined presentation. The authors begin by describing the behavior of deformable solids through the differential equations for the strength... more...
