Mechanics and electrodynamics of magneto-and electro-elastic materials by R. W Ogden( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a state-of-the-art overview of the continuum theory of both electro- and magneto-sensitive elastomers and polymers, which includes mathematical and computational apsects of the modelling of these materials from the point of view of material properties and, in particular, the "smart-material" control of their mechanical properties
Finite Elasticity Theory. by David J Steigmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A graduate-level text on Finite Elasticity, suitable for graduate students, post-doctoral associates and researchers. Introduces the reader to the basic elements of this central topic, which serves as a template for a host of theories in Solid Mechanics
Review of aircraft crash structural response research by Emmett A Witmer( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of aircraft crash structural response research has been carried out by studying the literature, discussions with researchers working in that area, and visits to facilitates/personnel involved in conducting and/or monitoring aircraft crash structural response investigations. Aircraft structures consisting of conventional built-up metallic construction and those consisting of advanced composite materials were of interest. The latter type of material and construction is of particular interest since their use is expanding rapidly, and crashworthiness of such structures is of increasing importance. Some recent theoretical and experimental studies of the behavior of composite-material structures subjected to severe static, dyanmic, and/or impact conditions are noted. Such topics as crashworthiness testing of composite fuselage structures, the impact resistance of graphite and hybrid configurations, and the effects of elastomeric additives on the mechanical properties of epoxy resin and composite systems are reviewed. A reivew is made of some current and planned research to investigate experimentally the mechanical failure, postfailure, and energy-absorbing behavior of a sequence of composite-material structural elements and structural assemblages subjected to static loads or to simulated crash-impact loads
The Role of Mechanics in the Study of Lipid Bilayers( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is the first collection of lipid-membrane research conducted by leading mechanicians and experts in continuum mechanics. It brings the overall intellectual framework afforded by modern continuum mechanics to bear on a host of challenging problems in lipid membrane physics. These include unique and authoritative treatments of differential geometry, shape elasticity, surface flow and diffusion, interleaf membrane friction, phase transitions, electroelasticity and flexoelectricity, and computational modelling
Advances in mechanics of solids : in memory of Prof. E.M. Haseganu : Series on stability, vibration and control of systems by A Guran( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mathematical modelling in solid mechanics( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book presents new research results in multidisciplinary fields of mathematical and numerical modelling in mechanics. The chapters treat the topics: mathematical modelling in solid, fluid and contact mechanics nonconvex variational analysis with emphasis to nonlinear solid and structural mechanics numerical modelling of problems with non-smooth constitutive laws, approximation of variational and hemivariational inequalities, numerical analysis of discrete schemes, numerical methods and the corresponding algorithms, applications to mechanical engineering numerical aspects of non-smooth mechanics, with emphasis on developing accurate and reliable computational tools mechanics of fibre-reinforced materials behaviour of elasto-plastic materials accounting for the microstructural defects definition of structural defects based on the differential geometry concepts or on the atomistic basis interaction between phase transformation and dislocations at nano-scale energetic arguments bifurcation and post-buckling analysis of elasto-plastic structures engineering optimization and design, global optimization and related algorithms The book presents selected papers presented at ETAMM 2016. It includes new and original results written by internationally recognized specialists
Advanced Reliability Modeling : Reliability Testing and Improvement: Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop (AIWARM 2006), No. 2( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2006 Asian International Workshop on Advanced Reliability Modeling (AIWARM) is the second symposium in a series of biennial workshops for the dissemination of state-of-art research and the presentation of practice in reliability and maintenance engineering in Asia. It brings together researchers and engineers from not only Asian countries but also all over world to discuss the state of research and practice in dealing with both reliability issues at the system design phase and maintenance issues at the system operation phase. The theme of AIWARM 2006 is "reliability testing and improvement". The contributions in this volume cover all the main topics in reliability and maintenance engineering, providing an in-depth presentation of theory and practice
