Stress waves in anelastic solids; symposium held at Brown University, Providence, R.I., April 3-5, 1963 by Herbert Kolsky( Book )

9 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the subject of wave propagation in solids has a long history, the classical theory of elastic waves having been developed in the nine teenth century by STOKES, POISSON, RAYLEIGH and KELVIN, the last two decades have seen a remarkable revival of interest in this subject among both theoreticians and experimenters. There' are a number of reasons for this; first, experimental methods for the generation and detection of high frequency mechanical waves have become available only with the advent of electronic techniques and of high speed photo graphic recording apparatus. Secondly, the appearan

Rheology and soil mechanics. Symposium Grenoble, April 1-8, 1964. Rhéologie et mécanique des sols; Symposium Grenoble, Ier-8 avril 1964 by J Kravtchenko( Book )

22 editions published in 1966 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long period Soil Mechanics has remained at the semi-empirica stage, and only a few decades ago it has shown a tendency to become a fundamental science. However, this evolution is taking place slowly; in spite of the efforts of numerous research scientists, the very complex rheological laws of soils are still not well known. Even if these laws were elucidated, it would take a long time still to deduce simple rules from them for reliable and convenient use in current practical engineer ing. In the pursuit of these distant aims - and of others more imme diate - fundamental research and applied research are very active, both in Rheology and Soil Mechanics. The complexity of the problems to be solved should incite the laboratory researchers and the engineers to a continuous collaboration. Everyone acknowledges the advantage of these connections although aware of the difficulty of realizing this wish. However, contacts are being made little by little between the repre sentatives of the different branches of Rheology and Soil Mechanics, to the great benefit of science. The bureau of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM), aware of the importance of these two associat ed fields of mechanics, considered it possible to accelerate the natural and necessary processus of their interpenetration by organizing in Grenoble, from 1st to 8th April 1964 an International Symposium on Rheology and Soil Mechanics
IUTAM Symposium on Transformation Problems in Composite and Active Materials : proceedings of the IUTAM symposium held in Cairo, Egypt, 9-12 March 1997 by Y. A Bahei-El-Din( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains papers contributed to the IUTAM Symposium on Transformation Problems in Composite and Active Materials which was held in Cairo, Egypt in March 1997. The chapters address uncoupled and coupled transformation problems in composite and smart materials and their structures. The book is organized into six sections covering the following subjects: inelastic behaviour of composite materials, shape memory effects, functionally graded materials, transformation problems in composite structures, adaptive structures, and elasticity issues. Although the field of composite materials has seen substantial development in the past two decades, new composite systems are continually being developed for various applications. Among such systems are metal, intermetallic, and superalloy matrix composites, carbon-carbon composites, and polymer matrix composites. The field of smart materials, on the other hand, is relatively new, but has also seen important developments recently. These two seemingly different fields have often been addressed in separate books, journals, and technical meetings. The present book realizes and addresses the similarities of the uncoupled and coupled transformation fields involved in both composite and smart materials. Outstanding researchers from the different groups active in mechanics of composite and smart materials have contributed papers which explore the common aspects of these materials and new directions in micromechanics research in both areas. Researchers active in the areas of mechanics of composite and smart materials will find this book very useful in addressing recent developments in these areas

IUTAM symposium on physicochemical and electromechanical interactions in porous media( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last decades, new experimental and numerical techniques have taken many advanced features of porous media mechanics down to practical engineering applications. This happened in areas that sometimes were not even suspected to be open to engineering ideas at all. The challenge that often faces engineers in the field of geomechanics, biomechanics, rheology and materials science is the translation of ideas existing in one field to solutions in the other. The purpose of the IUTAM symposium from which this proceedings volume has been compiled was to dive deep into the mechanics of those porous media that involve mechanics and chemistry, mechanics and electromagnetism, mechanics and thermal fluctuations of mechanics and biology. The different sections have purposely not been formed according to field interest, but on the basis of the physics involved
IUTAM Symposium on Topological Design Optimization of Structures, Machines and Materials : status and perspectives by Martin P Bendsøe( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the refereed and edited versions of papers presented at the IUTAM Symposium on Topological Design Optimization of Structures, - chines and Materials: Status and Perspectives, held at Rungstedgaard, near Copenhagen, Denmark, October 26{u2013}29, 2005. The symposium was attended by 74 scientists from 19 countries, and the programme was intensive and - cluded also two evenings for presentations and discussions. It is now more than 15 years ago that the so-called homogenization method was proposed as a basis for computational means to optimize the topology and shape of continuum structures. From initially being capable mainly of treating minimum compliance design we now see the basic material distribution idea of the methodology applied to a wide range of structural and mechanical pr- lems as well as to problems that couple structural response to other physical responses. Also, the method has provided insight for micro-mechanical st- ies, meaning that the method has given feedback to the area which provided impetus to the ?eld of topological design optimization in its creation. Finally, topological design is now an integral part of most FEM software systems and it has become a standard industrial tool in some ?elds. The IUTAM Symposium provided a forum for the exchange of ideas for - ture developments in the area of topological design optimization. This enc- passed the application to ?uid-solid interaction problems, acoustics problems, and to problems in biomechanics, as well as to other multiphysics problems

IUTAM Symposium on multiscale problems in multibody system contacts : proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held in Stuttgart, Germany, February 20-23, 2006 by Peter Eberhard( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The investigations of multiscale problems in multibody system contacts is a most interesting and timely topic which is the subject of intensive research for more than a decade. Many questions have already been answered and the mechanically sound description and simulation is increasingly being applied to practical engineering problems. The IUTAM Symposium on "Multiscale Problems in Multibody System Contacts" in Stuttgart, Germany which was held February 20-23, 2006 facilitated discussions between researchers active in the?eld and enabled us to review the current state of the subject, and to identify the important topics which require further e?ort. Multiscale problems occur very naturally in contact mechanics. Typically thecontactforcesandstressesareveryhighandthey aretransmittedwithina veryshortperiodoftime. This leadstoquestions, e.g.howtheslowrigidbody motion and the fast motion changes can be considered simultaneously or how interface e?ects couple with wave propagation and the large-scale motion. The purpose of the symposium was to provide a basis for discussion and exchange of new concepts and ideas between scientists from all over Europe and the world. Emphasis was placed also on sharing algorithms and concepts with young researchers who only recently entered the?eld of mechanical c- tacts

IUTAM Symposium on Hamiltonian Dynamics, Vortex Structures, Turbulence : proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held in Moscow, 25-30 August, 2006 by A. V Borisov( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work brings together previously unpublished notes contributed by participants of the IUTAM Symposium on Hamiltonian Dynamics, Vortex Structures, Turbulence (Moscow, 25-30 August 2006). The study of vortex motion is of great interest to fluid and gas dynamics: since all real flows are vortical in nature, applications of the vortex theory are extremely diverse, many of them (e.g. aircraft dynamics, atmospheric and ocean phenomena) being especially important. The last few decades have shown that serious possibilities for progress in the research of real turbulent vortex motions are essentially related to the combined use of mathematical methods, computer simulation and laboratory experiments. These approaches have led to a series of interesting results which allow us to study these processes from new perspectives. Based on this principle, the papers collected in this proceedings volume present new results on theoretical and applied aspects of the processes of formation and evolution of various flows, wave and coherent structures in gas and fluid. Much attention is given to the studies of nonlinear regular and chaotic regimes of vortex interactions, advective and convective motions. The contributors are leading scientists engaged in fundamental and applied aspects of the above mentioned fields

IUTAM Symposium on Nonlinear Dynamics for Advanced Technologies and Engineering Design : proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on Nonlinear Dynamics for Advanced Technologies and Engineering Design, held Aberdeen, UK, 27-30 July 2010 by Marian Wiercigroch( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear dynamics has been enjoying a vast development for nearly four decades resulting in a range of well established theory, with the potential to significantly enhance performance, effectiveness, reliability and safety of physical systems as well as offering novel technologies and designs. By critically appraising the state-of-the-art, it is now time to develop design criteria and technology for new generation products/processes operating on principles of nonlinear interaction and in the nonlinear regime, leading to more effective, sensitive, accurate, and durable methods than what is currently available. This new approach is expected to radically influence the design, control and exploitation paradigms, in a magnitude of contexts. With a strong emphasis on experimentally calibrated and validated models, contributions by top-level international experts will foster future directions for the development of engineering technologies and design using robust nonlinear dynamics modelling and analysis
