Applied functional analysis : a first course for students of mechanics and engineering science by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

39 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through numerous illustrative examples and comments, Applied Functional Analysis, Second Edition demonstrates the rigor of logic and systematic, mathematical thinking. It presents the mathematical foundations that lead to classical results in functional analysis. More specifically, the text prepares students to learn the variational theory of partial differential equations, distributions and Sobolev spaces, and numerical analysis with an emphasis on finite element methods. While retaining the structure of its best-selling predecessor
Computational mechanics : International Conference on Computational Methods in Nonlinear Mechanics, Austin, Texas, 1974 by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

79 editions published between 1974 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 735 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)

Variational methods in theoretical mechanics by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

38 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in 5 languages and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a textbook written for use in a graduate-level 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 graduate-level 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. Ming-Goei 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 the mathematical theory of finite elements by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

23 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to the basic mathematical theory of the finite element method is geared toward readers with limited mathematical backgrounds. Its coherent demonstrations explain the use of these techniques in developing the theory of finite elements, with detailed proofs of the major theorems and numerous examples. 1976 edition
Mechanics of elastic structures by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

Finite elements of nonlinear continua by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

34 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text extends applications of the finite element method from linear problems in elastic structures to a broad class of practical, nonlinear problems in continuum mechanics. Its general and unified treatment of theory and applications emphasizes nonlinear problems in finite elasticity, viscoelasticity, heat conduction, and thermoviscoelasticity. 1972 edition

Advances in adaptive computational methods in mechanics by Pierre Ladevèze( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 83 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. PPapers are selected from a Workshop (Cachan 17-19 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?
