Rational thermodynamics; a course of lectures on selected topics by C Truesdell( Book )

53 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first edition of this book I tried to survey in brief compass the main ideas, methods, and discoveries of rational thermodynamics as it then stood, only five years after Messrs. COLEMAN & NOLL, while in Baltimore, had written the fundamental memoir that provided for the new science the one root theretofore wanting. A survey in the same style today would require an almost wholly new book, three or four times as long. As it was in 1968, again in 1983 a consecutive treatise restricted to the foundations would be premature, for at this moment they are under earnest discussion, probing analysis, and powerful attack by several students and from several directions. Because, although in the first edition I expressed some opinions I no longer hold and made some statements I should now recast or even re tract, it seems even yet to offer a simple introduction to some aspects of the field that remain current, I have chosen to reprint it unaltered except for emendation of slips and bettering of the English here and there

Essays in the history of mechanics by C Truesdell( Book )

21 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and German and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects my shorter articles on the history of mechanics, some already published in various places, some revised from earlier papers, and some never published before. All of them began as lectures, and here they are printed as such, little changed from the last times I read them out to an audience. While the several articles concern different aspects of mechanics, overlap and even some repetition could not be avoided, since mechanics is one great science, and the same original oftentimes served more than one end in its growth. My three major historical treatises, which were published in Volumes (II) 11, 2 12, and 13 of L. Euleri Opera Omnia, are not included. To simplify the printing I have also mostly omitted detailed reference to sources discussed more fully in those treatises, but of course I have added to the texts of the lectures citations of other sources, some notes in answer to questions a reader might ask, and biblio graphical notes at the end of each. I am grateful to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this work through a grant to The Johns Hopkins University
The tragicomical history of thermodynamics, 1822-1854 by C Truesdell( Book )

The elements of continuum mechanics by C Truesdell( Book )

35 editions published between 1965 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lectures here reported were first delivered in August and September, 1965, for the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engi neering at syracuse University, New York under the sponsorship of the New York State Science and Technology Foundation. Lectures 1-6 and 22-23 are revised from a version prepared by Professor Kin N. Tong on the basis of a transcription of the lectures, kindly provided by Professor S. Eskinazi. The remainder of th~ text has been written out afresh from my own notes. Much of the same ground was covered in my lectures to the Austra lian Mathematical Society's Summer Research Institute at Melbourne in January and February, 1966, and for the parts affected the text conforms to this latter presentation. I am grateful to Professors C.-C. Wang and K.N. Tong for criticism of the manuscript. These lectures constitute a course, not a treatise. Names are attached to theorems justly, to the best of my knowledge, but are not intended to replace a history of the subject or references to the sources
The concepts and logic of classical thermodynamics as a theory of heat engines, rigorously constructed upon the foundation laid by S. Carnot and F. Reech by C Truesdell( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in English and German and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The consequences of the existence of a thermal equation of state, the eighteenth century doctrine of latent and specific heats, and Carnot's general axiom are developed here completely and rigorously. The book has conceptual, historical, and pedagogical aims: for those already expert in thermodynamics, it is shown how the traditional theory can be developed, using simple mathematics alone, from natural assumptions about heat engines. The features common to the thermodynamics of Carnot and to Clausius are revealed, and the irreconcilable differences discerned. A clean elementary thermodynamics suitable for beginners is presented: anyone proficient in calculus and with a fair grasp of high-school physics of heat will be able to understand the book fully
Fundamentals of Maxwell's kinetic theory of a simple monatomic gas : treated as a branch of rational mechanics by C Truesdell( Book )

Six lectures on modern natural philosophy by C Truesdell( Book )

20 editions published in 1966 in 3 languages and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These lectures were first given during my tenure of a Walker Ames Visiting Professorship in the Department of Astronautics and Aeronautics at the University of Washington, November 2-12, 1964. I am grateful for the interest shown there and for the tranquil hospitality of Dr. JOHN BOLLARD and Dr. ELLIS DILL, which allowed me the leisure sufficient to write the first manuscript. I thank Dean ROBERT Roy and Dr. GEORGE BENTON for the unusual honor of an invitation to deliver a series of public lectures at my own university. Apart from the footnotes on pp. 49, 50, and 85, which have been added so as to answer questions allowed by the slower pace of silence, and the obviously necessary note on p. 106, the lectures of this second series are here printed as read, February 9-25, 1965. Thus I may call these, in imitation of a famous example, " Bal timore Lectures". Acknowledgment The first lecture is based largely upon my Bingham Medal Address of 1963, part of which it reproduces verbatim. The filth lecture may be regarded as a partial summary of my course on ergodic theory at the International School of Physics, Varenna, 1960. Much of the last lecture runs parallel to my article "The Modern Spirit in Applied Mathematics", ICSU Review of World Science, Volume 6, pp. 195-205 (1964), and some paragraphs are taken from my address to the Fourth U.S. National Congress of Applied Mechanics (1961)
An idiot's fugitive essays on science : methods, criticism, training, circumstances by C Truesdell( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When, after the agreeable fatigues of solicitation, Mrs Millamant set out a long bill of conditions subject to which she might by degrees dwindle into a wife, Mirabell offered in return the condition that he might not thereby be beyond measure enlarged into a husband. With age and experience in research come the twin dangers of dwindling into a philosopher of science while being enlarged into a dotard. The philosophy of science, I believe, should not be the preserve of senile scientists and of teachers of philosophy who have themselves never so much as understood the contents of a textbook of theoretical physics, let alone done a bit of mathematical research or even enjoyed the confidence of a creating scientist. On the latter count I run no risk: Any reader will see that I am untrained (though not altogether unread) in classroom philosophy. Of no ignorance of mine do I boast, indeed I regret it, but neither do I find this one ignorance fatal here, for few indeed of the great philosophers to explicate whose works hodiernal professors of phil osophy destroy forests of pulp were themselves so broadly and specially trained as are their scholiasts. In attempt to palliate the former count I have chosen to collect works written over the past thirty years, some of them not published before, and I include only a few very recent essays

The non-linear field theories of mechanics by C Truesdell( Book )

27 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a second, corrected edition of The Non-Linear Field Theories of Mechanics, which first appeared as Volume IIII3 of the Encyclopaedia of Physics, 1965. Its principal aims were to replace the conceptural, terminological, and notational chaos that existed in the literature of the field by at least a modicum of order and coherence, and second, to describe, or at least to summarize, everything that was both known and worth knowing in the field at the time. Inspecting the literature that has appeared since then, we conclude that the first aim was achieved to some degree. Many of the concepts, terms, and notations we introduced have become more or less standard, and thus communication among researchers in the field has been eased. On the other hand, some ill-chosen terms are still current. Examples are the use of "configuration" and "deformation" for what we should have called, and now call, "placement" and "transplacement", respectively. (To classify translations and rotations as deformations clashes too severely with the dictionary meaning of the latter.) We believe that the second aim was largely achieved also. We have found little published before 1965 that should have been included in the treatise but was not. However, a large amount of relevant literature has appeared since 1965, some of it important. As a result, were the treatise to be written today, it should be very different

The rational spirit in modern continuum mechanics : essays and papers dedicated to the memory of Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III by Chi-Sing Man( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his voluminous and influential writings, editorial activities, organizational leadership, intellectual acumen, and strong sense of history, Clifford A. Truesdell (1919-2000) was the main architect for the renaissance of rational continuum mechanics since the middle of the 20th century. This collection of 42 essays and research papers pays tribute to this man of mathematics, science, and natural philosophy as well as to his legacy. There are essays of personal reminiscences (including contributions from J. Serrin, W. Noll, and B.D. Coleman among others), as are papers at the forefronts
