The non-linear field theories of mechanics by C Truesdell( Book )

39 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and German and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a second, corrected edition of The Non-Linear Field Theories of Mechanics, which first appeared as Volume IIII3 of the Encyclopaedia of Physics, 1965. Its principal aims were to replace the conceptural, terminological, and notational chaos that existed in the literature of the field by at least a modicum of order and coherence, and second, to describe, or at least to summarize, everything that was both known and worth knowing in the field at the time. Inspecting the literature that has appeared since then, we conclude that the first aim was achieved to some degree. Many of the concepts, terms, and notations we introduced have become more or less standard, and thus communication among researchers in the field has been eased. On the other hand, some ill-chosen terms are still current. Examples are the use of "configuration" and "deformation" for what we should have called, and now call, "placement" and "transplacement", respectively. (To classify translations and rotations as deformations clashes too severely with the dictionary meaning of the latter.) We believe that the second aim was largely achieved also. We have found little published before 1965 that should have been included in the treatise but was not. However, a large amount of relevant literature has appeared since 1965, some of it important. As a result, were the treatise to be written today, it should be very different

German scholars, against odds now not only forgotten but also hard to imagine, were striving to revivify the life of the mind which the mental and physical barbarity preached and practised by the -isms and -acies of 1933-1946 had all but eradicated. Thinking that among the disciples of these elders, restorers rather than progressives, I might find a student or two who would wish to master new mathematics but grasp it and use it with the wholeness of earlier times, in 1952 I wrote to Mr. HAMEL, one of the few then remaining mathematicians from the classical mould, to ask him to name some young men fit to study for the doc torate in The Graduate Institute for Applied Mathematics at Indiana University, flourishing at that time though soon to be destroyed by the jealous ambition of the local, stereotyped pure. Having just retired from the Technische Universitat in Charlottenburg, he passed my inquiry on to Mr. SZABO, in whose institute there NOLL was then an assistant. Although Mr
Continuum theory of inhomogeneities in simple bodies; a reprint of six memoirs by W Noll( Book )

6 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term "dislocation" is used in several different senses in the literature of mechanics. In the elassic work of VOLTERRA, WEINGARTEN, and SOMIGLIANA, it refers to particular solutions of the equations of linear elasticity, in which a con tinuous field of strain does not correspond, globally, to a continuous field of dis placement. The configuration of the body so obtained, even when that body is free of all load, is subject to interior stress that does not vanish, and in general no deformation of the body as a wh oIe can bring it into a stress-free configuration. Nevertheless, if any sufficiently sm all part of the body is considered by itself, a configuration for it in which the stress is everywhere zero may be found at once. In this work constitutiL"e assumptions provide the basic data. These consist in prescribed stress-free configurations for each material point and in prescribed elastic moduli governing the response to deformation from the stress-free configuration at each material point. Everything follows from these data, ineluding the dislocations present, if any. In particular, the common boundary-value problems of linear elasticity may be set and solved for the dislocated body

A. Audience. This treatise (consisting of the present VoU and of VoUI, to be published) is primarily intended to be a textbook for a core course in mathematics at the advanced undergraduate or the beginning graduate level. The treatise should also be useful as a textbook for selected stu dents in honors programs at the sophomore and junior level. Finally, it should be of use to theoretically inclined scientists and engineers who wish to gain a better understanding of those parts of mathemat ics that are most likely to help them gain insight into the conceptual foundations of the scientific discipline of their interest. B. Prerequisites. Before studying this treatise, a student should be familiar with the material summarized in Chapters 0 and 1 of Vol. 1. Three one-semester courses in serious mathematics should be sufficient to gain such fa miliarity. The first should be an introduction to contemporary math ematics and should cover sets, families, mappings, relations, number systems, and basic algebraic structures. The second should be an in troduction to rigorous real analysis, dealing with real numbers and real sequences, and with limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration of real functions of one real variable. The third should be an intro duction to linear algebra, with emphasis on concepts rather than on computational procedures. C. Organization

Etude d'une équation différentielle fonctionnelle non linéaire régissant les mouvements instationnaires de fluides simples by Michel Lucius( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le problème est envisagé selon deux points de vue : d'une part en le considérant sous l'aspect mathématique et d'autre part en regardant son origine mécanique. L'utilisation combinée des équations fondamentales de la dynamique et de la loi de comportement des fluides simples conduit à l'écriture d'une équation différentielle fonctionnelle non linéaire qui régit le mouvement considéré. Le problème mathématique étudié consiste à établir un ensemble de conditions suffisantes portant sur la fonctionnelle tangentielle de réponse du milieu pour assurer l'existence et l'unicité de la solution de cette équation qui satisfait à des conditions initiales et aux limites données. A ce propos est développée une méthode originale de résolution que l'on peut considérer comme une généralisation des méthodes d'approximations successives à des problèmes bi-dimensionnels (espace, temps). Cette méthode est exposée au début du chapitre II. L'application de ce procédé et l'utilisation de certains résultats d'analyse fonctionnelle conduit à l'existence de solutions liées à des problèmes linéaires "héréditaires" c'est-à-dire pour lesquels le passé tout entier influence sensiblement le comportement présent. Une étude générale de ces équations est développée dans la seconde moitié du chapitre II. Dans cette partie apparaissent de façon naturelle des considérations sur l'énergie dissipée par frottement interne au sein du milieu en mouvement ; à ce propos, nous avons été amené à démontrer certaines inégalités originales. Nous les retrouverons aussi dans cette seconde partie du chapitre II. Le chapitre III porte essentiellement sur l'existence et l'unicité de la solution du problème envisagé. Un ensemble d'estimations à priori permet de situer la solution dans un espace fonctionnel de type Sobolev d'ordre un. Enfin, la recherche du comportement assymptotique de la solution permet de rejoindre des résultats déjà connus pour des écoulements viscométriques stationnaires. La seconde partie de cette étude (chapitre IV) apparait comme une application de la partie théorique et porte sur la possibilité de détermination expérimentale de certaines fonctions matérielles caractéristiques du milieu considéré. Envisagé ici sous l'aspect mécanique, le problème apparait en quelque sorte comme l'inverse du problème mathématique, En effet pour ce dernier, toutes les fonctions ou fonctionnelles qui figurent dans les équations sont supposées connues. En pratique il n'en est pas ainsi, et nous avons voulu montrer comment la théorie précédemment exposée permettait de réaliser une telle détermination. Afin de montrer que la méthode de résolution du chapitre II n'était nullement liée au type de mouvement choisi nous l'avons appliqué à d'autres modes d'écoulement (plan-cône, cisaillement simple)."
