"The book succeeds at a variety of levels, and will be a useful resource " SIAM Review "This beautiful volume, printed with the usual high standards of Cambridge University Press in the Lecture Notes Series of the London Mathematical Society, is a happy addition to the available roster of books on nonlinear continuum mechanics.4/4(1).   Nonlinear Elasticity presents a description of research and result on various nonlinear problems arising in elasticity. This book covers a variety of topics, including shallow elastic membranes, nonlinear elasticity, finite deformations of elastic solids, and nonlinear thermoelasticity. Organized into 11 chapters, this book begins with an Book Edition: 1. The pioneering and wide-ranging research of A. E. Green--one of the outstanding British researchers in theoretical and applied mechanics--is the subject of this important new volume. Featuring sixteen up-to-date research papers written by his eminent colleagues and friends, the book covers a variety of topics from thermodynamics to problems associated with crystals; linear, nonlinear and fibre. This book, written by a group of leading researchers invited especially for the purpose, provides an up-to-date and concise account of the fundamentals of the theory of nonlinear elasticity and a comprehensive review of several major current research directions in this important field.

For many years, a standard treatise on elasticity has been the book by Love (). Another standard text on linear elasticity has been prepared by Timoshenko and Goodier (), which first appeared in Among other books on nonlinear elasticity, we mention those Cited by:   Nonlinear elasticity is concerned with nonlinear effects associated with deformations of elastic bodies subjected to external forces or temperature variations. It has important applications in many areas, including the aerospace and rubber industries, and biomechanics. This book, written by a group of leading researchers invited especially for the purpose, provides an up-to-date and concise. Deformation in continuum mechanics is the transformation of a body from a reference configuration to a current configuration. A configuration is a set containing the positions of all particles of the body. A deformation may be caused by external loads, body forces (such as gravity or electromagnetic forces), or changes in temperature, moisture content, or chemical reactions, etc. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xxi, pages: illustrations ; 25 cm: Contents: Publications of A.E. Green --Quasistatic cycles in dynamic linear thermoelasticity / W.A. Day --The second-order deformation of an incompressible isotropic slab under torsion / K.A. Lindsay --Reversible and non-dissipative processes / J.L. Ericksen --Convexity considerations.

The book continues with chapters on tensors, three-dimensional continuum mechanics, three-dimensional elasticity, large-strain plasticity, general theories of rods and shells, and dynamical problems. Each chapter contains a wealth of interesting, challenging, and tractable exercises.   System Upgrade on Feb 12th During this period, E-commerce and registration of new users may not be available for up to 12 hours.

In their prior Dover book, Theoretical Mechanics of Particles and Continua, the authors provided a self-contained account of classical supplement and update offers a bridge to contemporary mechanics. The original book's focus on continuum mechanics forms the basis for this discussion of nonlinear continuous systems. edition/5(7). Modeling the mechanical behavior of rubber like materials within the framework of nonlinear elasticity theory was the subject of a lot of studies, which could be found in the review articles.
