American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Contents may have variations from the printed book or be incomplete or contain other coding. After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.
We can notify you when this item is back in stock. A serious attempt has been made to convey concepts through numerous example problems. Continuum Mechanics, the application of concepts of time, space, forces, energy, and motion to understand the response of matter to external stimuli by assuming the matter to be infinitely or continuously divisible in space, has played a vital role in our understanding of the behavior of aerospace vehicles during flight.
Special thanks go to Mrs.
This book provides an up to date, practical explanation of continuum mechanics that will appeal to students and practising engineers alike. The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a university setting, instructional materials for continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent study.
I thank my family and especially my wife, Manju, and two daughters, Monica and Meenakshi, for bearing with me during this endeavor.
He earned his B.
Table of contents for Elements of continuum mechanics
Chapter 5 Constitutive Relations. Elements of continuum mechanics. As the ever-growing capabilities of numerical tools are being used to simulate how fluids and solids respond to high temperatures and severe loads, a fundamental understanding of the theory of large coupled thermo-mechanical deformations will play an ever-increasing role. It features applications using numerical calculation tools for example in electronics, materials science and surgerywith mathematical coverage geared towards engineering students.
Chapter 7 Fluid Flow. It is written in a clear and easy-to-read style and provides a thorough overview of non-linear continuum mechanics. Chapter one is very brief and is quite elementary; it does not require any class time. Special emphasis is placed on constitutive relations. Chapter 2 Mathematical Preliminaries. After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.
