Structural Mechanics of Anti-Sandwiches

An Introduction

This book provides an extensive introduction to the mechanics of anti-sandwiches: non-classical composites with multiple homogeneous layers but widely differing parameters concerning their geometry and materials. Therefore, they require special …

Singular Solutions in Plasticity

This book deals with singular solutions that appear in the vicinity of maximum friction surfaces for several rigid plastic models. In particular, it discusses precise asymptotic expansions as a necessary ingredient for the development of efficient …

Experimentation Methodology for Engineers

This book delivers a methodological approach on the experimentation and/or simulation processes from the disclaiming hypothesis on a physical phenomenon to the validation of the results. The main benefit of the book is that it discusses all the …

Recent Developments in Anisotropic Heterogeneous Shell Theory

General Theory and Applications of Classical Theory - Volume 1

This volume focuses on the relevant general theory and presents some first applications, namely those based on classical shell theory. After a brief introduction, during which the history and state-of-the-art are discussed, the first chapter

The State of Deformation in Earthlike Self-Gravitating Objects

This book presents an in-depth continuum mechanics analysis of the deformation due to self-gravitation in terrestrial objects, such as the inner planets, rocky moons and asteroids. Following a brief history of the problem, modern continuum …

Recent Developments in Anisotropic Heterogeneous Shell Theory

Applications of Refined and Three-dimensional Theory—Volume IIA

This brief book presents solutions of stress-strain problems for a wide class of anisotropic inhomogeneous shells obtained by the refined model. Studying these problems results in severe computational difficulties due to partial differential …

Recent Developments in Anisotropic Heterogeneous Shell Theory

Applications of Refined and Three-dimensional Theory—Volume IIB

These two-partition books present essential approaches to numerical-analytical solutions of problems in the mechanics of shells with various structures and shapes based on refined and spatial models. Further, it examines the mechanical behavior of …
