Nonlinear Problems of Elasticity (Applied Mathematical Sciences) by Stuart Antman
Springer; 2nd edition | May 11, 2005 | English | ISBN: 0387208801 | 844 pages | PDF | 13 MB
Enlarged, updated, and extensively revised, this second edition illuminates specific problems of nonlinear elasticity, emphasizing the role of nonlinear material response. Opening chapters discuss strings, rods, and shells, and applications of bifurcation theory and the calculus of variations to problems for these bodies. Subsequent chapters cover tensors, three-dimensional continuum mechanics, three-dimensional elasticity , general theories of rods and shells, and dynamical problems. Each chapter includes interesting, challenging, and tractable exercises.
