Title  Meshless Methods in Solid Mechanics 
Author(s)  Chen, Youping;Lee, James;Eskandarian, Azim 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2006. 
Description  XII, 200 p. 60 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Finite element method has been the dominant technique in computational mechanics in the past decades, and it has made significant contributions to the developments in engineering and science. Nevertheless, finite element method is not well suited to problems having severe mesh distortion owing to extremely large deformations of materials, encountering moving discontinuities such as crack propagation along arbitrary and complex paths, involving considerable meshing and remeshing in structural optimization problems, or having multidomain of influence in multiphenomenon physical problems. It is impossible to completely overcome those meshrelated difficulties by a meshbased method. The highly structured nature of finite element approximations imposes severe penalties in the solutions of those problems. Distinguishing with finite element, finite difference and finite volume methods, meshless method discretizes the continuum body only with a set of nodal points and the approximation is constructed entirely in terms of nodes. There is no need of mesh or elements in this method. It does not posses the mesh related difficulties, eliminates at least part of the FE structure, and provides an approach with more flexibility in the applications in engineering and science. The meshless method started to capture the interest of a broader community of researchers only several years ago, and now it becomes a growing and evolving field. It is showing that this is a very rich area to be explored, and has great promise for many very challenging computational problems. On the one hand, great developments on meshless methods have been achieved. On the other hand, there are many aspects of meshless methods that could be benefit from improvements. A broader community of researchers can bring divergent skills and backgrounds to bear on the task of improving this method. The main objective of this book is to provide a textbook for graduate courses on the computational analysis of continuum and solid mechanics based on meshless (also known as mesh free) methods. It can also be used as a reference book for engineers and scientists who are exploring the physical world through computer simulations. Emphasis of this book is given to the understanding of the physical and mathematical characteristics of the procedures of computational solid mechanics. It naturally brings the essence, advantages and challenging problems of meshless methods into the picture. The subjects in this book cover the fundamentals of continuum mechanics, the integral formulation methods of continuum problems, the basic concepts of finite element methods, and the methodologies, formulations, procedures, and applications of various meshless methods. It also provides general and detailed procedures of meshless analysis on elastostatics, elastodynamics, nonlocal continuum mechanics and plasticity with a large number of numerical examples. Some basic and important mathematical methods are included in the Appendixes. For the readers who want to gain knowledge through handson experience, the meshless programs for elastostatics and elastodynamics are also introduced in the book and included in the disc

Title  Shock Wave Compression of Condensed Matter : A Primer 
Author(s)  Forbes, Jerry W 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  XIV, 374 p. 211 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the core concepts of the shock wave physics of condensed matter, taking a continuum mechanics approach to examine liquids and isotropic solids. The text primarily focuses on onedimensional uniaxial compression in order to show the key features of condensed matter???s response to shock wave loading. The first four chapters are specifically designed to quickly familiarize physical scientists and engineers with how shock waves interact with other shock waves or material boundaries, as well as to allow readers to better understand shock wave literature, use basic data analysis techniques, and design simple 1D shock wave experiments. This is achieved by first presenting the steady onedimensional strain conservation laws using shock wave impedance matching, which insures conservation of mass, momentum and energy. Here, the initial emphasis is on the meaning of shock wave and mass velocities in a laboratory coordinate system. An overview of basic experimental techniques for measuring pressure, shock velocity, mass velocity, compression and internal energy of steady 1D shock waves is then presented. In the second part of the book, more advanced topics are progressively introduced: thermodynamic surfaces are used to describe equilibrium flow behavior, firstorder Maxwell solid models are used to describe timedependent flow behavior, descriptions of detonation shock waves in ideal and nonideal explosives are provided, and lastly, a select group of current issues in shock wave physics are discussed in the final chapter

Title  Classical Mechanics : Hamiltonian and Lagrangian Formalism 
Author(s)  Deriglazov, Alexei 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XII, 308 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Formalism of classical mechanics underlies a number of powerful mathematical methods that are widely used in theoretical and mathematical physics. This book considers the basics facts of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, as well as related topics, such as canonical transformations, integral invariants, potential motion in geometric setting, symmetries, the Noether theorem and systems with constraints. While in some cases the formalism is developed beyond the traditional level adopted in the standard textbooks on classical mechanics, only elementary mathematical methods are used in the exposition of the material. The mathematical constructions involved are explicitly described and explained, so the book can be a good starting point for the undergraduate student new to this field. At the same time and where possible, intuitive motivations are replaced by explicit proofs and direct computations, preserving the level of rigor that makes the book useful for the graduate students intending to work in one of the branches of the vast field of theoretical physics. To illustrate how classicalmechanics formalism works in other branches of theoretical physics, examples related to electrodynamics, as well as to relativistic and quantum mechanics, are included

Title  Charged Semiconductor Defects : Structure, Thermodynamics and Diffusion 
Author(s)  Seebauer, Edmund G;Kratzer, Meredith C 
Publication  London, Springer London, 2009. 
Description  XIV, 298 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The technologically useful properties of a solid often depend upon the types and concentrations of the defects it contains. Not surprisingly, defects in semiconductors have been studied for many years, in many cases with a view towards controlling their behavior through various forms of "defect engineering." For example, in the bulk, charging significantly affects the total concentration of defects that are available to mediate phenomena such as solidstate diffusion. Surface defects play an important role in mediating surface mass transport during high temperature processing steps such as epitaxial film deposition, diffusional smoothing in reflow, and nanostructure formation in memory device fabrication. Charged Semiconductor Defects details the current state of knowledge regarding the properties of the ionized defects that can affect the behavior of advanced transistors, photoactive devices, catalysts, and sensors. Features: Group IV, IIIV, and oxide semiconductors; Intrinsic and extrinsic defects; and, Point defects, as well as defect pairs, complexes and clusters. A crucial reference for materials scientists, surface scientists, electrical engineers, and solidstate physicists looking to approach the topic of defect charging from an integrated chemical engineering perspective. Researchers and industrial practitioners alike will find its content invaluable for device and process optimization

Title  The HamiltonType Principle in Fluid Dynamics : Fundamentals and Applications to Magnetohydrodynamics, Thermodynamics, and Astrophysics 
Author(s)  Fierros Palacios, Angel 
Publication  Vienna, Springer Vienna, 2006. 
Description  XXV, 404 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The objective of this book is to contribute to specialized literature with the most significant results obtained by the author in Continuous Mechanics and Astrophysics. The nature of the book is largely determined by the fact that it describes Fluid Dynamics,Magnetohydrodynamics,and Classical Thermodynamics as branches of Lagrange???s Analytical Mechanics; and in that sense, the approach presented in it is markedly different from the treatment given to them in traditional text books. In order to reach that goal, a HamiltonType Variational Principle, as the proper mathermatical technique for the theoretical description of the dy mic state of any fluid is formulated. The scheme is completed proposing a new group of variations regarding the evolution parameter which is time; and with the demonstration of a theorem concerning the invariance of the action integral under continuous and infinitesimal temporary transfor tions. With all that has been mentioned before and taking into account the methodsof thecalculusof variationsandtheadequateboundaryconditions, a general methodology for the mathematical treatment of fluid flows characteristic of Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, and also fluids at rest proper of Classical Thermodynamics is presented

Title  VibroAcoustics, Volume 1 
Author(s)  Nilsson, Anders;Liu, Bilong 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015. 
Description  XVII, 373 p. 175 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This threevolume book gives a thorough and comprehensive presentation of vibration and acoustic theories. Different from traditional textbooks which typically deal with some aspects of either acoustic or vibration problems, it is unique of this book to combine those two correlated subjects together. Moreover, it provides fundamental analysis and mathematical descriptions for several crucial phenomena of VibroAcoustics which are quite useful in noise reduction, including how structures are excited, energy flows from an excitation point to a sound radiating surface, and finally how a structure radiates noise to a surrounding fluid. Many measurement results included in the text make the reading interesting and informative. Problems/questions are listed at the end of each chapter and the solutions are provided. This will help the readers to understand the topics of VibroAcoustics more deeply. The book should be of interest to anyone interested in sound and vibration, vehicle acoustics, ship acoustics and interior aircraft noise. This is the first volume, and covers the following topics: Mechanical systems with one degree of freedom, Frequency domain, Waves in solids, Interaction between longitudinal and transverse waves, General wave equation, Wave attenuation due to losses and transmission across junctions, Longitudinal vibrations of finite beams, Flexural vibrations of finite beams, Flexural vibrations of finite plates.??
