This book offers a broad overview of the potential of continuum mechanics to describe a wide range of macroscopic phenomena in real-world problems. Building on the fundamentals presented in the authors’ previous book, Continuum Mechanics using Mathematica®, this new work explores interesting models of continuum mechanics, with an emphasis on exploring the flexibility of their applications in a wide variety of fields.

Recognized authors contributed to this collection of original papers from all fields of research in continuum mechanics. Special emphasis is given to time dependent and independent permanent deformations, damage and fracture. Part of the contributions is dedicated to current efforts in describing material behavior with regard to, e.g., anisotropy, thermal effects, softening, ductile and brittle fracture, porosity and granular structure. Another part deals with numerical aspects arising from the implementation of material laws in the calculations of forming processes, soil mechanics and structural mechanics. Applications of theory and numerical methods belong to the following areas: Comparison with experimental results from material testing, metal forming under thermal and dynamic conditions, failure by damage, fracture and localized deformation modes. The variety of treated topics provides a survery of the actual research in these fields; therefore, the book is addressed to those interested in special problems of continuum mechanics as well as to those interested in a general knowledge.

Modern continuum mechanics is the topic of this book. After its introduction it will be applied to a few typical systems arising in the environmental sciences and in geophysics. In large lake/ocean dynamics peculiar effects of the rotation of the Earth will be analyzed in linear/nonlinear processes of a homogenous and inhomogenous water body. Strong thermomechanical coupling paired with nonlinear rheology affects the flow of large ice sheets (such as Antarctica and Greenland) and ice shelves. Its response to the climatic forcing in an environmental of greenhouse warming may significantly affect the life of future generations. The mechanical behavior of granular materials under quasistatic loadings requires non-classical mixture concepts and encounters generally complicated elastic-plastic-type constitutive behavior. Creeping flow of soils, consolidation processes and ground water flow are described by such theories. Rapid shearing flow of granular materials lead to constitutive relations for the stresses which incorporate rate independent behavior of Mohr-Coulomb type together with dispersive stress contributions due to particle collisions. Rockfalls, sturzstroms, snow and ice avalanches, but also debris flow and sea ice drifting can be described with such formulations.

This updated version covers the considerable work on research and development to determine elastic properties of materials undertaken since the first edition of 1987. It emphasises 3-dimensional elasticity, concisely covering this important subject studied in most universities by filling the gap between a mathematical and the engineering approach. Based on the author's extensive research experience, it reflects the need for more sophisticated methods of elastic analysis than is usually taught at undergraduate level. The subject is presented at the level of sophistication for engineers with mathematical knowledge and those familiar with matrices. Readers wary of tensor notation will find help in the opening chapter. As his text progresses, the author uses Cartesian tensors to develop the theory of thermoelasticity, the theory of generalised plane stress, and complex variable analysis. Relatively inaccessible material with important applications receives special attention, e.g. Russian work on anisotropic materials, the technique of thermal imaging of strain, and an analysis of the San Andreas fault. Tensor equations are given in straightforward notation to provide a physical grounding and assist comprehension, and there are useful tables for the solution of problems.
