Plasticity and Geomechanics

30 September 2011

**Plasticity and Geomechanics**

0521818303Plasticity and Geomechanics is a concise introduction to the general subject of plasticity with a particular emphasis on applications in geomechanics. Derived from the authors' lecture notes, this book is written with students firmly in mind. Excessive use of mathematical methods is avoided and, where possible, physical interpretations are given for important concepts. The authors present a clear introduction to the complex ideas and concepts of plasticity and demonstrate how this developing subject is of critical importance to geomechanics and geotechnical engineering. ...

Geomechanics Of Failures Advanced Topic

**Geomechanics of Failures. Advanced Topic**

Springer | 2010 | ISBN: 9048135370 | 266 pages | PDF | 20,8 MB

This unconventional approach to geomechanics is the essence of this book. In general, soil mechanics and geotechnical textbooks describe first the concepts and theoretical developments and then apply them to interpret or solve a particular applications. This book follows a different course. The case (a failure) is first described and then an explanation is sought. This requires a set of steps which can be summarized as follows: Identify the nature of the problem, develop a dedicated and specific formulation of the case, based on established basic concepts.

Elasticity: Theory, Applications, and Numerics

12 October 2010

**Elasticity: Theory, Applications, and Numerics**

Although there are several books in print dealing with elasticity, many focus on specialized topics such as mathematical foundations, anisotropic materials, two-dimensional problems, thermoelasticity, non-linear theory, etc. As such they are not appropriate candidates for a general textbook. This book provides a concise and organized presentation and development of general theory of elasticity. Complemented by a Solutions Manual and including MatLab codes and coding, this text is an excellent book teaching guide. ...

An Introduction to Differential Geometry with Applications to Elasticity

14 April 2011

**An Introduction to Differential Geometry with Applications to Elasticity**

This monograph presents the basic theorems of differential geometry in three-dimensional space, including a thorough coverage of surface theory. By means of a series of carefully selected and representative mathematical models this monograph also explains at length how these theorems are used in three-dimensional elasticity and in shell theory. The presentation is essentially selfcontained, with a great emphasis on pedagogy. In particular, no "a priori" knowledge of differential geometry or of elasticity theory is assumed, the only requirements are a reasonable knowledge of basic analysis, functional analysis, and some acquaintance with ordinary and partial differential equations....

Material Inhomogeneities in Elasticity

21 May 2011

**Material Inhomogeneities in Elasticity**

Self contained, this book presents a thorough introduction to the complementary notions of physical forces and material (or configurational) forces. All the required elements of continuum mechanics, deformation theory and differential geometry are also covered. This book will be a great help to many, whilst revealing to others a rather new facet of continuum mechanics in general, and elasticity in particular. An organized exposition of continuum mechanics on the material manifold is given which allows for the consideration of material inhomogeneities in their most appropriate framework. In such a frame the nonlinear elasticity of anisotropic inhomogenous materials appears to be a true field theory. Extensions to the cases of electroelasticity and magnetelasticity are then straightforward. In addition, this original approach provides systematic computational means for the evaluation of characteristic parameters which are useful in various branches of applied mechanics and mathematical physics. This is the case for path-independent integrals and energy-release rates in brittle fracture, the influence of electromagnetic fields on fracture criteria (such as in ceramics), the notion of momentum of electromagnetic fields in matter in optics, and the perturbation of solitons propagating in elastic dispersive systems. ...

Theoretical Elasticity

**Theoretical Elasticity**

457 pages | Aug 31 2010 |ISBN:0486670767 | PDF | 5.5 Mb

This highly regarded hardcover engineering manual is mainly concerned with three important aspects of elasticity theory: finite elastic deformations, complex variable methods for two-dimensional problems for both isotropic and aeolotropic bodies, and shell theory. Also discussed are three-dimensional problems for isotropic and transversely isotropic bodies. Chapter 1, devoted to mathematical preliminaries, includes a summary of tensors for workers unfamiliar with those notations. Subsequent chapters deal with the general theory of elasticity for finite deformations
