Описание: The book is meant to be an introduction, aimed primarily towards graduate students. Part I of the book (theoretical foundations) and Part III of the book (proving theorems concerning simplified versions of the models that are studied in Part II) are necessarily terse and present the wide range of applications of the ideas, and illustrate their unity. The subject matter in these set of notes has, for the most part, been known for several decades. However, the particular presentation of the material here is particularly suited to the pedagogical goal of communicating the subject area to the wide range of mathematicians, scientists and engineers who are currently engaged in the use of these tools to tackle the enormous range of applications that require them.Extensions and generalizations of the results presented in these notes, as well as references to the literature, are given in the Discussion and Bibliography section, at the end of each chapter. With the exception of Chapter 1, all chapters are supplemented with exercises.
Описание: This book elucidates the correlation of fatigue crack growth data to multiscale cracking, particularly to the understanding of micrographs influenced by mechanical disturbance and thermodynamic variables.
Multiscale Structural Mechanics provides a unified approach for composites modelling based on the representative structure element. After introducing the basic knowledge in vectors and tensors, continuum mechanics, micromechanics and structural mechanics, this concept is introduced and applied to construct micromechanics models and structural mechanics for beams, plates, and shells. This book fills the gap of rigorously bridging micromechanics and structural mechanics. The structural models remain the same as simple engineering models, however with the accuracy comparable to more complex theories. A general-purpose constitutive modelling code also accompanies the book to provide practical tools for engineers to efficiently and accurately model composites.
Описание: Over recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in the multidisciplinary archaeology and anthropology of modern conflict. This volume provides both a welcome overview of the opportunities afforded scholars by the integration of anthropology and history, as well as a specific investigation into how such an approach can reinvigorate our understanding of the First World War.
