  • Internal Friction of Materialsby A. Puskar

    Cambridge International Science Publishing 2001; US$ 130.00

    The 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...

  • Variational Models and Methods in Solid and Fluid Mechanicsby Francesco dell'Isola; Sergey Gavrilyuk

    Springer Vienna 2012; US$ 148.82

    This book presents three fundamental aspects of the variational formulation of mechanics: physical, mathematical and applicative ones. Advises on choosing the most suitable formulation, and applies variational analysis directly to real engineering problems. more...

  • The Mechanical and Thermodynamical Theory of Plasticityby Mehrdad Negahban

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 57.95

    Born out of 15 years of courses and lectures on continuum mechanics, nonlinear mechanics, continuum thermodynamics, viscoelasticity, plasticity, crystal plasticity, and thermodynamic plasticity, The Mechanical and Thermodynamical Theory of Plasticity represents one of the most extensive and in-depth treatises on the mechanical and thermodynamical... more...

  • Three-Dimensional Problems of Elasticity and Thermoelasticityby V. D. Kupradze

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    North-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 Solidsby Alexey V. Porubov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 53.00 US$ 48.23

    This 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...

  • Principles of Hyperplasticityby Guy T. Houlsby; Alexander M. Puzrin

    Springer London 2007; US$ 183.16

    Principles of Hyperplasticity is concerned with the theoretical modelling of the behaviour of solids which undergo nonlinear and irreversible deformation. The approach to plasticity theory developed here is firmly rooted in thermodynamics, so that the models developed are guaranteed to obey the First and Second Laws. Major emphasis is placed on... more...

  • Generalized Plasticityby Mao-Hong Yu; Guo-Wei Ma; Hong-Fu Qiang; Yong-Qiang Zhang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 183.16

    Generalized Plasticity deals with the plasticity of materials and structures. It is an expansion of the "Unified Strength Theory to Plasticity Theory", leading to a unified treatment of metal plasticity and plasticity of geomaterials, generally. It includes the metal plasticity for Tresca materials, Huber-von-Mises materials and twin-shear materials... more...

  • Centrifugal Pumps and Allied Machineryby H. H. Anderson

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 93.95

    This 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...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 125.92

    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...
