Nonlinear Solid Mechanics a Continuum Approach for Engineering Gerhard A. Holzapfel Graz University of Technology, Austria With a modern, comprehensive approach directed towards computational mechanics, this book covers a unique combination of subjects at present unavailable in any other text. It includes vital information on 'variational principles' constituting the cornerstone of the finite element method. In fact this is the only method by which Nonlinear Solid Mechanics is utilized in engineering practice. The book opens with a fundamental chapter on vectors and tensors. The following chapters are based on nonlinear continuum mechanics - an inevitable prerequisite for computational mechanicians. In addition, continuum field theory (applied to a representative sample of hyperelastic materials currently used in nonlinear computations such as incompressible and compressible materials) is presented, as are transversely isotropic materials, composite materials, viscoelastic materials and hyperelastic materials with isotropic damage. Another central chapter is devoted to the thermodynamics of materials, covering both finite thermoelasticity and finite thermoviscoelasticity. Also included are: * an up-to-date list of almost 300 references and a comprehensive index * useful examples and exercises for the student * selected topics of statistical and continuum thermodynamics. Furthermore, the principle of virtual work (in both the material and spatial descriptions) is compared with two and three-field variational principles particularly designed to capture kinematic constraints such as incompressibility. All of the features combined result in an essential text for final year undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering and applied maths and physics.

This book presents an introduction to the classical theories of continuum mechanics; in particular, to the theories of ideal, compressible, and viscous fluids, and to the linear and nonlinear theories of elasticity. These theories are important, not only because they are applicable to a majority of the problems in continuum mechanics arising in practice, but because they form a solid base upon which one can readily construct more complex theories of material behavior. Further, although attention is limited to the classical theories, the treatment is modern with a major emphasis on foundations and structure

This self-contained graduate-level text introduces classical continuum models within a modern framework. Its numerous exercises illustrate the governing principles, linearizations, and other approximations that constitute classical continuum models. Starting with an overview of one-dimensional continuum mechanics, the text advances to examinations of the kinematics of motion, the governing equations of balance, and the entropy inequality for a continuum. The main portion of the book involves models of material behavior and presents complete formulations of various general continuum models. The final chapter contains an introductory discussion of materials with internal state variables. Two substantial appendixes cover all of the mathematical background necessary to understand the text as well as results of representation theorems. Suitable for independent study, this volume features 280 exercises and 170 references.

A classic in the field, this book meets the demands of courses that establish groundwork in hydrodynamics, gas dynamics, plasticity and elasticity, and it provides typical continua problems for nonspecialists. The author addresses the major aspects of continuum studies: geometrical foundations, state of stress, instantaneous motion, fundamental laws, perfect fluids, viscous fluids, visco-plastic and perfectly plastic materials, hypoelastic materials, finite strain, and elastic and hyperelastic materials. The text’s broad converge and numerous applications include more than 160 problems and examples, and the only prerequisites are first- and second-year college calculus. 1961 ed.

Geared toward postgraduate students, theoretical physicists, and researchers, this advanced text explores the role of modern group-theoretical methods in quantum theory. The authors based their text on a physics course they taught at a prominent Soviet university. Readers will find it a lucid guide to group theory and matrix representations that develops concepts to the level required for applications. The text's main focus rests upon point and space groups, with applications to electronic and vibrational states. Additional topics include continuous rotation groups, permutation groups, and Lorentz groups. A number of problems involve studies of the symmetry properties of the Schroedinger wave function, as well as the explanation of "additional" degeneracy in the Coulomb field and certain subjects in solid-state physics. The text concludes with an instructive account of problems related to the conditions for relativistic invariance in quantum theory.
