Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics and Physics provides a differential geometry approach to nonlinear continuum mechanics that will appeal to both engineers and material scientists. It includes heuristic and rigorous expositions of crucial concepts like finite deformation compatibility conditions, the Lie-derivative, frame-indifference and material symmetry principles. With exercises at the end of each chapter to emphasize concepts, readers will be able to further understand the latest techniques and research. This book is designed to support postgraduates and researchers in the areas of mechanical engineering, nano-mechanics, biomechanics and computational mechanics. Systematically uses a differential geometric approach Provides new developments in convex analysis and variational calculus in finite deformation Investigates applications in biomechanics and soft matter mechanics Explains the atomistic interpretation of stress
The aim of the book is the presentation of the fundamental mathematical and physical concepts of continuum mechanics of solids in a unified description so as to bring young researchers rapidly close to their research area. Accordingly, emphasis is given to concepts of permanent interest, and details of minor importance are omitted. The formulation is achieved systematically in absolute tensor notation, which is almost exclusively used in modern literature. This mathematical tool is presented such that study of the book is possible without permanent reference to other works.

The book provides a rigorous axiomatic approach to continuum mechanics under large deformation. In addition to the classical nonlinear continuum mechanics – kinematics, fundamental laws, the theory of functions having jump discontinuities across singular surfaces, etc. - the book presents the theory of co-rotational derivatives, dynamic deformation compatibility equations, and the principles of material indifference and symmetry, all in systematized form. The focus of the book is a new approach to the formulation of the constitutive equations for elastic and inelastic continua under large deformation. This new approach is based on using energetic and quasi-energetic couples of stress and deformation tensors. This approach leads to a unified treatment of large, anisotropic elastic, viscoelastic, and plastic deformations. The author analyses classical problems, including some involving nonlinear wave propagation, using different models for continua under large deformation, and shows how different models lead to different results. The analysis is accompanied by experimental data and detailed numerical results for rubber, the ground, alloys, etc. The book will be an invaluable text for graduate students and researchers in solid mechanics, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, physics and crystallography, as also for scientists developing advanced materials.

Nonlinear Solid Mechanics a Continuum Approach for Engineering Gerhard A. Holzapfel Graz University of Technology, Austria With a modern, comprehensive approach directed towards computational mechanics, this book covers a unique combination of subjects at present unavailable in any other text. It includes vital information on 'variational principles' constituting the cornerstone of the finite element method. In fact this is the only method by which Nonlinear Solid Mechanics is utilized in engineering practice. The book opens with a fundamental chapter on vectors and tensors. The following chapters are based on nonlinear continuum mechanics - an inevitable prerequisite for computational mechanicians. In addition, continuum field theory (applied to a representative sample of hyperelastic materials currently used in nonlinear computations such as incompressible and compressible materials) is presented, as are transversely isotropic materials, composite materials, viscoelastic materials and hyperelastic materials with isotropic damage. Another central chapter is devoted to the thermodynamics of materials, covering both finite thermoelasticity and finite thermoviscoelasticity. Also included are: * an up-to-date list of almost 300 references and a comprehensive index * useful examples and exercises for the student * selected topics of statistical and continuum thermodynamics. Furthermore, the principle of virtual work (in both the material and spatial descriptions) is compared with two and three-field variational principles particularly designed to capture kinematic constraints such as incompressibility. All of the features combined result in an essential text for final year undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering and applied maths and physics.
Undergraduate text opens with introductory chapters on matrix algebra, vectors and Cartesian tensors, and an analysis of deformation and stress; succeeding chapters examine laws of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy as well as the formulation of mechanical constitutive equations. 1992 edition.

Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Elasticity-Plasticity empowers readers to fully understand the constitutive equation of finite strain, an essential piece in assessing the deformation/strength of materials and safety of structures. The book starts by providing a foundational overview of continuum mechanics, elasticity and plasticity, then segues into more sophisticated topics such as multiplicative decomposition of deformation gradient tensor with the isoclinic concept and the underlying subloading surface concept. The subloading surface concept insists that the plastic strain rate is not induced suddenly at the moment when the stress reaches the yield surface but it develops continuously as the stress approaches the yield surface, which is crucially important for the precise description of cyclic loading behavior. Then, the exact formulations of the elastoplastic and viscoplastic constitutive equations based on the multiplicative decomposition are expounded in great detail. The book concludes with examples of these concepts and modeling techniques being deployed in real-world applications. Table of Contents: 1. Mathematical Basics 2. General (Curvilinear) Coordinate System 3. Description of Deformation/Rotation in Convected Coordinate System 4. Deformation/Rotation (Rate) Tensors 5. Conservation Laws and Stress Tensors 6. Hyperelastic Equations 7. Development of Elastoplastic Constitutive Equations 8. Multiplicative Decomposition of Deformation Gradient Tensor 9. Multiplicative Hyperelastic-based Plastic and Viscoplastic Constitutive Equations 10. Friction Model: Finite Sliding Theory Covers both the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and elastoplasticity while also introducing readers to more advanced topics such as the subloading surface model and the multiplicative decomposition among others Approaches finite elastoplasticity and viscoplasticty theory based on multiplicative decomposition and the subloading surface model Provides a thorough introduction to the general tensor formulation details for the embedded curvilinear coordinate system and the multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient
DIVComprehensive treatment offers 115 solved problems and exercises to promote understanding of vector and tensor theory, basic kinematics, balance laws, field equations, jump conditions, and constitutive equations. /div

Designing engineering components that make optimal use of materials requires consideration of the nonlinear characteristics associated with both manufacturing and working environments. The modeling of these characteristics can only be done through numerical formulation and simulation, and this requires an understanding of both the theoretical background and associated computer solution techniques. By presenting both nonlinear continuum analysis and associated finite element techniques under one roof, Bonet and Wood provide, in this edition of this successful text, a complete, clear, and unified treatment of these important subjects. New chapters dealing with hyperelastic plastic behavior are included, and the authors have thoroughly updated the FLagSHyP program, freely accessible at www.flagshyp.com. Worked examples and exercises complete each chapter, making the text an essential resource for postgraduates studying nonlinear continuum mechanics. It is also ideal for those in industry requiring an appreciation of the way in which their computer simulation programs work.
Addresses behaviour of materials under extreme mechanical conditions and of failure in terms of non-linear continuum mechanics and instability theory.
The new edition includes additional analytical methods in the classical theory of viscoelasticity. This leads to a new theory of finite linear viscoelasticity of incompressible isotropic materials. Anisotropic viscoplasticity is completely reformulated and extended to a general constitutive theory that covers crystal plasticity as a special case.

This book provides definitions and mathematical derivations of fundamental relationships of tensor analysis encountered in nonlinear continuum mechanics and continuum physics, with a focus on finite deformation kinematics and classical differential geometry. Of particular interest are anholonomic aspects arising from a multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient into two terms, neither of which in isolation necessarily obeys the integrability conditions satisfied by the gradient of a smooth vector field. The concise format emphasizes clarity and ease of reference, and detailed step-by-step derivations of most analytical results are provided.
