Exploring contemporary advancements in continuum mechanics, Configurational Forces: Thermomechanics, Physics, arithmetic, and Numerics offers the overall framework for configurational forces. It additionally covers more than a few functions in engineering and condensed topic physics.

The writer provides the basics of permitted normal continuum mechanics, sooner than introducing Eshelby fabric tension, box concept, variational formulations, Noether’s theorem, and the ensuing conservation legislation. within the bankruptcy on advanced continua, he compares the classical standpoint of B.D. Coleman and W. Noll with the point of view associated with summary box conception. He then describes the real thought of neighborhood structural rearrangement and its courting to Eshelby tension. After taking a look at the relevance of Eshelby rigidity within the thermodynamic description of singular interfaces, the textual content makes a speciality of fracture difficulties, microstructured media, structures with mass exchanges, and electromagnetic deformable media. The concluding chapters speak about the exploitation of the canonical conservation legislations of momentum in nonlinear wave propagation, the applying of canonical-momentum conservation legislations and fabric strength in numerical schemes, and similarities of fluid mechanics and aerodynamics.

Written through a long-time researcher in mechanical engineering, this e-book offers an in depth remedy of the speculation of configurational forces—one of the most recent and so much fruitful advances in macroscopic box theories. via many purposes, it indicates the intensity and potency of this theory.

The classical, phenomenological idea of plastically anisotropic fabrics has handed some distance: from the paintings of von Mises offered in 1928, and the HilI formula given in 1948, to the most recent papers on huge elastic-plastic deformations of anisotropic steel sheets. A attribute characteristic of this method is a linear stream rule and a quadratic yield criterion.
