- Mechanics of Solids by S. S. BhavikattiISBN: 9788122428582
- Models of Mechanics by Anders KlarbringISBN: 9781402048340Publication Date: 2006-08-04This textbook on models and modeling in mechanics introduces a new unifying approach to applied mechanics: through the concept of the open scheme, a step-by-step approach to modeling evolves. The unifying approach enables a very large scope on relatively few pages: the book treats theories of mass points and rigid bodies, continuum models of solids and fluids, as well as traditional engineering mechanics of beams, cables, pipe flow and wave propagation.

Madeo: Fluid shock wave generation at solid-material discontinuity surfaces in porous media.Variational 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 of real physical problems with the aim of finding the best variational formulation suitable to those problems. The second aspect is the study of the well-posedeness of those mathematical problems which need to be solved in order to draw previsions from the formulated models. And the third aspect is related to the direct application of variational analysis to solve real engineering problems.
- Springer Handbook of Experimental Solid Mechanics by William N. Sharpe (Editor)ISBN: 0387308776Publication Date: 2008-10-20As a reference book, the Springer Handbook provides a comprehensive exposition of the techniques and tools of experimental mechanics. An informative introduction to each topic is provided, which advises the reader on suitable techniques for practical applications. New topics include biological materials, MEMS and NEMS, nanoindentation, digital photomechanics, photoacoustic characterization, and atomic force microscopy in experimental solid mechanics. Written and compiled by internationally renowned experts in the field, this book is a timely, updated reference for both practitioners and researchers in science and engineering.
- Foundations of Engineering Mechanics by Leonid I. ManevitchISBN: 3642153720Publication Date: 2011-01-01This book describes significant tractable models used in solid mechanics - classical models used in modern mechanics as well as new ones. The models are selected to illustrate the main ideas which allow scientists to describe complicated effects in a simple manner and to clarify basic notations of solid mechanics. A model is considered to be tractable if it is based on clear physical assumptions which allow the selection of significant effects and relatively simple mathematical formulations.The first part of the book briefly reviews classical tractable models for a simple description of complex effects developed from the 18th to the 20th century and widely used in modern mechanics. The second part describes systematically the new tractable models used today for the treatment of increasingly complex mechanical objects â from systems with two degrees of freedom to three-dimensional continuous objects.
- Mechanics of Natural Solids by D. Kolymbas; Gioacchino ViggianiISBN: 3642035787This book presents the lectures of the Symposium on Mechanics of Natural Solids, hold from 7th to 9th September 2009 in Horto, Greece. It delivers a paradigm for the interconnection of the mechanics of soil, rock, ice and snow and also for the interdisciplinary character of the related research. Therefore, the presented lectures are of fundamental character and address the possible interfaces and the fascinating contents of the several subjects.
- Analytical Mechanics by Antonio Fasano; Stefano MarmiISBN: 9780191513596Publication Date: 2006-04-01Is the solar system stable? Is there a unifying 'economy' principle in mechanics? How can a pointmass be described as a 'wave'? This book offers students an understanding of the most relevant and far reaching results of the theory of Analytical Mechanics, including plenty of examples, exercises, and solved problems. -;Analytical Mechanics is the investigation of motion with the rigorous tools of mathematics. Rooted in the works of Lagrange, Euler, Poincar--eacute--; (to mention just a few), it is a very classical subject with fascinating developments and still rich of open problems. It addresses such fundamental questions as: Is the solar system stable? Is there a unifying 'economy' principle in mechanics? How can a point mass be described as a 'wave'? And has remarkable applications to manybranches of physics (Astronomy, Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics).This book was written to fill a gap between elementary expositions and more advanced (and clearly more stimulating) material. It takes up the challenge to explain the most relevant ideas (generally highly non-trivial) and to show the most important applications using a plain language and 'simple' mathematics, often through an original approach. Basic calculus is enough for the reader to proceed through the book. New mathematical concepts are fully introduced and illustrated in a simple,student-friendly language. More advanced chapters can be omitted while still following the main ideas. Anybody wishing to go deeper in some direction will find at least the flavour of recent developments and many bibliographical references. The theory is always accompanied by examples. Many problems aresuggested and some are completely worked out at the end of each chapter. The book may effectively be used (and has been used at several Italian Universities) for undergraduate as well as for PhD courses in Physics and Mathematics at various levels.
