Über dieses Buch

This book illustrates the deep roots of the geometrically nonlinear kinematics of

generalized continuum mechanics in differential geometry. Besides applications to first-

order elasticity and elasto-plasticity an appreciation thereof is particularly illuminating

for generalized models of continuum mechanics such as second-order (gradient-type)

elasticity and elasto-plasticity.

After a motivation that arises from considering geometrically linear first- and second-

order crystal plasticity in Part I several concepts from differential geometry, relevant

for what follows, such as connection, parallel transport, torsion, curvature, and metric

for holonomic and anholonomic coordinate transformations are reiterated in Part II.

Then, in Part III, the kinematics of geometrically nonlinear continuum mechanics

are considered. There various concepts of differential geometry, in particular aspects

related to compatibility, are generically applied to the kinematics of first- and second-

order geometrically nonlinear continuum mechanics. Together with the discussion on

the integrability conditions for the distortions and double-distortions, the concepts

of dislocation, disclination and point-defect density tensors are introduced. For

concreteness, after touching on nonlinear fir

st- and second-order elasticity, a detailed

discussion of the kinematics of (multiplicative) first- and second-order elasto-plasticity

is given. The discussion naturally culminates in a comprehensive set of different types

of dislocation, disclination and point-defect density tensors. It is argued, that these

can potentially be used to model densities of geometrically necessary defects and the

accompanying hardening in crystalline materials. Eventually Part IV summarizes the

above findings on integrability whereby distinction is made between the straightforward

conditions for the distortion and the double-distortion being integrable and the more

involved conditions for the strain (metric) and the double-strain (connection) being

integrable.

The book addresses readers with an interest in continuum modelling of solids from

engineering and the sciences alike, whereby a sound knowledge of tensor calculus and

continuum mechanics is required as a prerequisite.

Künstliche Intelligenz und die Potenziale des maschinellen Lernens für die Industrie

Maschinelles Lernen ist die Schlüsseltechnologie für intelligente Systeme. Besonders erfolgreich ist in den letzten Jahren das Lernen tiefer Modelle aus großen Datenmengen – „Deep Learning“. Mit dem Internet der Dinge rollt die nächste, noch größere Datenwelle auf uns zu. Hier bietet die Künstliche Intelligenz besondere Chancen für die deutsche Industrie, wenn sie schnell genug in die Digitalisierung einsteigt.
