Continuum mechanics

  • Mechatronic Systems: Theory and Applicationsby Mohamed Slim Abbes; Jean-Yves Choley; Fakher Chaari; Abdessalem Jarraya; Mohamed Haddar

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 105.97

    The book offers a snapshot of the state-of-art in the field of model-based mechatronic system design. It covers topics including machine design and optimization, predictive systems in manufacturing networks, and the development of software for modeling and simulation of processes, which are supplemented by practical case studies. The book is a collection... more...

  • Computational Biomechanics of the Hip Jointby Mohammed Rafiq Abdul Kadir

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 50.62

    This book presents analyses of the  most commonly reported failure modes of hip stems: loosening and thigh pain; both are attributed to the relative motion and instability at the bone-implant interface due to failure to achieve sufficient primary fixation. The book investigates various factors that could affect primary stability and therefore the long-term... more...

  • Stability Loss and Buckling Delaminationby Surkay Akbarov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 188.40

    This book examines stability loss problems of viscoelastic composite materials and structural members via the the Three-Dimensional Linearized Theory of Stability showing that equations and relations of these problems coincide with corresponding ones in TDLTS. more...

  • Dynamics of Pre-Strained Bi-Material Elastic Systemsby Surkay D. Akbarov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.52

    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...

  • Continuous Media with Microstructure 2by Bettina Albers; Mieczyslaw Kuczma

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 153.07

    This book presents research advancesin the field of Continuous Media with Microstructure and considers the threecomplementary pillars of mechanical sciences: theory, research andcomputational simulation.  It focuses on the followingproblems: thermodynamic and mathematical modeling of materials withextensions of classical constitutive laws,... more...

  • Elastic/Plastic Discs Under Plane Stress Conditionsby Sergey Alexandrov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 50.62

    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...

  • Continuum Mechanicsby Myron B. Allen

    Wiley 2015; US$ 99.95 US$ 89.96

    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...

  • Kontinuumsmechanikby Holm Altenbach

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 36.60

    Ziel des Buchs ist es, auf möglichst einfache Weise in die Grundlagen dieses anspruchsvollen Fachgebiets einzuführen. Gegliedert in Abschnitte zum historischen Abriss und zur Tensorrechnung, zu materialunabhängigen und zu materialabhängigen Gleichungen liegt der Schwerpunkt des Buchs bei festen deformierbaren Körpern. Viele Beispiele mit vollständigen... more...

  • Kontinuumsmechanikby Holm Altenbach

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 34.62

    Das Buch führt in möglichst einfacher Weise in die Grundlagen der Kontinuumsmechanik ein, wobei der Schwerpunkt bei festen deformierbaren Körpern liegt. Es gliedert sich in vier Teile: - Grundbegriffe und mathematische Grundlagen - Materialunabhängige Gleichungen - Materialabhängige Gleichungen - Anfangs-Randwertaufgaben der Kontinuumsmechanik... more...

  • Inelastic Behavior of Materials and Structures Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loadingby Holm Altenbach; Michael Brünig

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 102.44

    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...
