Recent Advances in Structural Joints and Repairs for Composite Materials
ISBN: 9781402013812 / Angielski / Twarda / 254 str. Joints in components or structures incur a weight penalty, are a source of failure, cause manufacturing problems, and are unfortunately unavoidable in most structures ranging from aircraft, and spacecraft to ships and offshore platforms, to automobiles, bridges and buildings. An important requirement for the complete design of practical structures is the development of attachment methods and joint designs. Recent Advances in Structural Joints and Repairs for Composite Materials provides an uptodate account of adhesively bonded and mechanically fastened joints and repairs....

Mathematics and Mechanics of Granular Materials
ISBN: 9781402037818 / Angielski / Twarda / 320 str. Granular or particulate materials arise in almost every aspect of our lives, including many familiar materials such as tea, coffee, sugar, sand, cement and powders. At some stage almost every industrial process involves a particulate material, and it is usually the cause of the disruption to the smooth running of the process. In the natural environment, understanding the behaviour of particulate materials is vital in many geophysical processes such as earthquakes, landslides and avalanches. This book is a collection of current research from some of the major contributors in the topic of...

Multifield Problems: State of the Art
ISBN: 9783540675112 / Angielski / Twarda / 278 str. The simulation of complex engineering problems often involves an interaction or coupling of individual phenomena, which are traditionally related by themselves to separate fields of applied mechanics. Typical examples of these so called multifield problems are the thermomechanical analysis of solids with coupling between mechanical stress analysis and thermal heat transfer processes, the simulation of coupled deformation and fluid transport mechanisms in porous media, the prediction of mass transport and phase transition phenomena of mixtures, the analysis of sedimentation proces ses based...

Topology Optimization in Structural and Continuum Mechanics
ISBN: 9783709116425 / Angielski / Twarda / 471 str. The book covers new developments in structural topology optimization. Basic features and limitations of Michell s truss theory, its extension to a broader class of support conditions, generalizations of truss topology optimization, and Michell continua are reviewed. For elastic bodies, the layout problems in linear elasticity are discussed and the method of relaxation by homogenization is outlined. The classical problem of free material design is shown to be reducible to a locking material problem, even in the multiload case. For structures subjected to dynamic loads, it is explained how they...

Nardinocchi and M. Vianello for valuable remarks prompted by their reading of one or another of the many previous drafts, from 1988 to date. Since it has taken me so long to bring this writing to its present form, many other colleagues and students have episodically offered useful comments and caught mistakes: a list would risk to be incomplete, but I am heartily grateful to them all. Finally, I thank V. Nicotra for skillfully transforming my hand...

Plasticity and Textures
ISBN: 9789048159123 / Angielski / Miękka / 240 str. The classical, phenomenological theory of plastically anisotropic materials has passed a long way: from the work of von Mises presented in 1928, and the HilI formulation given in 1948, to the latest papers on large elasticplastic deformations of anisotropic metal sheets. A characteristic feature of this approach is a linear flow rule and a quadratic yield criterion. Mathematical simplicity of the theory is a reason of its numerous applications to the analysis of engineering structures during the onset of plastic deformations. However, such an approach is not sufficient for description of the...

Fracture and Fatigue Emanating from Stress Concentrators
ISBN: 9789048164172 / Angielski / Miękka / 233 str. A vast majority of failures emanate from stress concentrators such as geometrical discontinuities. The role of stress concentration was first highlighted by Inglis (1912) who gives a stress concentration factor for an elliptical defect, and later by Neuber (1936). With the progress in computing, it is now possible to compute the real stress distribution at a notch tip. This distribution is not simple, but looks like pseudosingularity as in principle the power dependence with distance remains. This distribution is governed by the notch stress intensity factor which is the basis of Notch...
