Explore the Computational Methods and Mathematical Models That Are Possible through Continuum Mechanics Formulations Mathematically demanding, but also rigorous, precise, and written using very clear language, Advanced Mechanics of Continua provides a thorough understanding of continuum mechanics. This book explores the foundation of continuum mechanics and constitutive theories of materials using understandable notations. It does not stick to one specific form, but instead provides a mix of notations that while in many instances are different than those used in current practice, are a natural choice for the information that they represent. The book places special emphasis on both matrix and vector notations, and presents material using these notations whenever possible. The author explores the development of mathematical descriptions and constitutive theories for deforming solids, fluids, and polymeric fluids—both compressible and incompressible with clear distinction between Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions as well as co- and contravariant bases. He also establishes the tensorial nature of strain measures and influence of rotation of frames on various measures, illustrates the physical meaning of the components of strains, presents the polar decomposition of deformation, and provides the definitions and measures of stress. Comprised of 16 chapters, this text covers: Einstein’s notation Index notations Matrix and vector notations Basic definitions and concepts Mathematical preliminaries Tensor calculus and transformations using co- and contra-variant bases Differential calculus of tensors Development of mathematical descriptions and constitutive theories Advanced Mechanics of Continua prepares graduate students for fundamental and basic research work in engineering and sciences, provides detailed and consistent derivations with clarity, and can be used for self-study.

Innovative technische Projekte mit komplexen Aufgabenstellungen erfordern oft solide Kenntnisse in der Kontinuumsmechanik. Denn häufig handelt es sich um Mehrfeldprobleme, die sich im Rahmen klassischer Konzepte der Technischen Mechanik nicht lösen lassen. Das Buch führt leicht verständlich in das anspruchsvolle Gebiet der Kontinuumsmechanik ein. Der Schwerpunkt liegt bei festen deformierbaren Körpern, wobei sich die vorgestellten Konzepte problemlos auch auf Fluide übertragen lassen. Das Lehrbuch gliedert sich in vier Abschnitte: Grundbegriffe und mathematische Grundlagen, Materialunabhängige Gleichungen, Materialabhängige Gleichungen. Nach einer kurzen Einführung in Aufgaben, Betrachtungsweisen und Modelle der Kontinuumsmechanik werden zunächst die Grundzüge der Tensorrechnung vorgestellt. Die folgenden Kapitel behandeln systematisch die materialunabhängigen Aussagen der Kontinuumsmechanik, das heißt die Kinematik, die Kinetik und die Bilanzen. In den abschließenden Kapiteln zeigt der Autor anhand der für technische Anwendungen besonders wichtigen Teilgebiete (z.B. die lineare Theorie der Elastizität und der Thermoelastizität) wie die materialunabhängigen und die materialabhängigen Gleichungen zusammengefasst werden können. Zahlreiche Beispiele mit vollständigen Lösungen illustrieren den theoretischen Teil und erleichtern so das Verständnis. In der 4. Auflage wurden zahlreiche Abschnitte überarbeitet und präzisiert, wobei auch die unterschiedlichen Konzepte der Kontinuumsmechanik noch deutlicher gemacht werden. Zahlreiche Fehler wurden beseitigt. Gleichzeitig wurde die Referenzliteratur erweitert sowie die Liste der weiterführenden Literatur ergänzt und aktualisiert. Diese Einführung in die Kontinuumsmechanik richtet sich an Studierende an Universitäten und Fachhochschulen im Bereich Maschinenbau und Bauingenieurwesen, Physik und Technomathematik sowie an Wissenschaftler und Praktiker in der Industrie. Vorausgesetzt werden Kenntnisse der Höheren Mathematik, der Physik, der Technischen Mechanik, der Thermodynamik, der Strömungslehre und der Werkstoffkunde, wie sie zu Beginn der Ausbildung vermittelt werden.

This book takes readers through all the steps necessary for solving hard problems in continuum mechanics with smooth particle methods. Pedagogical problems clarify the generation of initial conditions, the treatment of boundary conditions, the integration of the equations of motion, and the analysis of the results. Particular attention is paid to the parallel computing necessary for large problems and to the graphic displays, including debugging software, required for the efficient completion of computational projects. The book is self-contained, with summaries of classical particle mechanics and continuum mechanics for both fluids and solids, computer languages, the stability of numerical methods, Lyapunov spectra, and message-passing parallel computing. The main difficulties faced by meshless particle methods are discussed and the means of overcoming them are illustrated with worked examples.
