It provides an excellent collection of fundamental solutions to various problems in elasticity theory and it describes a wide range of solution procedures. (D.A. Hills, University of Oxford, Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science)
Présentation de l'éditeur
This mechanical engineering monograph describes various methods for solving deformation problems of particulate solids. It is the first to describe linear elasticity problems in the language of fluid mechanics, and provide a coherent explanation of solutions from analytical methods to the latest advances in computational methods. Providing the groundwork for simulations on high performance parallel computers, and with numerous examples to complement the theory, the book is a sound basis for further research investigations.
