Variational methods in theoretical mechanics by
J. Tinsley Oden(
Book
)
38 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a textbook written for use in a graduatelevel course for students of mechanics and engineering science. It is designed to cover the essential features of modern variational methods and to demonstrate how a number of basic mathematical concepts can be used to produce a unified theory of variational mechanics. As prerequisite to using this text, we assume that the student is equipped with an introductory course in functional analysis at a level roughly equal to that covered, for example, in Kolmogorov and Fomin (Functional Analysis, Vol. I, Graylock, Rochester, 1957) and possibly a graduatelevel course in continuum mechanics. Numerous references to supplementary material are listed throughout the book. We are indebted to Professor Jim Douglas of the University of Chicago, who read an earlier version of the manuscript and whose detailed suggestions were extremely helpful in preparing the final draft. We also gratefully acknowedge that much of our own research work on va ri at i ona 1 theory was supported by the U.S. Ai r Force Offi ce of Scientific Research. We are indebted to Mr. MingGoei Sheu for help in proofreading. Finally, we wish to express thanks to Mrs. Marilyn Gude for her excellent and painstaking job of typing the manuscript. This revised edition contains only minor revisions of the first. Some misprints and errors have been corrected, and some sections were deleted, which were felt to be out of date

An introduction to mathematical modeling : a course in mechanics by
J. Tinsley Oden(
)
17 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An important resource, this book provides a shortcourse in nonlinear continuum mechanics, contains a brief account of electromagnetic wave theory and Maxwell's equations as well as an introductory account of quantum mechanics, and presents a brief introduction to statistical mechanics of systems in thermodynamic equilibrium. Also included is information on continuum mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics. The author approaches mechanics as the branch of physics and mathematical science concerned with describing the motion of bodies, including their deformation and temperature changes, under the action of forces, and if the study of the propagation of waves and the transformation of energy in physical systems are added, then the term mechanics does indeed apply to everything that is covered within the book.

J. Tinsley Oden(
Book
)
45 editions published between 1974 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document is the final technical report for the project, Computational Methods in Nonlinear Mechanics. The Report summarizes results obtained on this project for the period June 30, 1980 through September 30, 1982. All objectives of the original statement of work have been accomplished. These have included advances in mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, approximation theory, development of computer codes, and the study of related issues connected with the following nonlinear structural problems: contact problems in elasticity, reduced integration and penalty methods for finite element approximations of constrained problems in elasticity and fluid flow, contact problems with friction, nonlinear friction laws, plasticity and metal forming, existence and approximation theories in contact problem in elastostatics, fracture mechanics numerical methods for problems of finite elastic deformation, nonlinear eigenvalue problems, and bifurcation theory. Detailed summaries of results in some of these areas are given together with lists of all papers, reports, books, dissertations and oral presentations produced during the contract period. Suggestions for further research areas are also given. (Author)

An introduction to the mathematical theory of finite elements by
J. Tinsley Oden(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This introduction to the theory of Sobolev spaces and Hilbert space methods in partial differential equations is geared toward readers of modest mathematical backgrounds. It offers coherent, accessible demonstrations of the use of these techniques in developing the foundations of the theory of finite element approximations. J. T. Oden is Director of the Institute for Computational Engineering & Sciences (ICES) at the University of Texas at Austin, and J. N. Reddy is a Professor of Engineering at Texas A&M University. They developed this essentially selfcontained text from their seminars and courses for students with diverse educational backgrounds. Their effective presentation begins with introductory accounts of the theory of distributions, Sobolev spaces, intermediate spaces and duality, the theory of elliptic equations, and variational boundary value problems. The second half of the text explores the theory of finite element interpolation, finite element methods for elliptic equations, and finite element methods for initial boundary value problems. Detailed proofs of the major theorems appear throughout the text, in addition to numerous examples

Advances in adaptive computational methods in mechanics by
Pierre Ladevèze(
)
14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mastering modelling, and in particular numerical models, is becoming a crucial and central question in modern computational mechanics. Various tools, able to quantify the quality of a model with regard to another one taken as the reference, have been derived. Applied to computational strategies, these tools lead to new computational methods which are called adaptive. The present book is concerned with outlining the state of the art and the latest advances in both these important areas. Papers are selected from a Workshop (Cachan 1719 September 1997) which is the third of a series devoted to Error Estimators and Adaptivity in Computational Mechanics. The Cachan Workshop dealt with latest advances in adaptive computational methods in mechanics and their impacts on solving engineering problems. It was centered too on providing answers to simple questions such as: what is being used or can be used at present to solve engineering problems? What should be the state of art in the year 2000? What are the new questions involving error estimators and their applications?
