Item description for Partial Differential Equations in Mechanics 2 by A.P.S. Selvadurai...
This two-volume work mainly addresses undergraduate and gra- duate students in the engineering sciences and applied ma- thematics. Hence it focuses on partial differential equati- ons with a strong emphasis on illustrating important appli- cations in mechanics. The presentation considers the general derivation of partial differential equations and the formu- lation of consistent boundary and initial conditions requi- red to develop well-posed mathematical statements of pro- blems in mechanics. The worked examples within the text and problem sets at the end of each chapter highlight enginee- ring applications. The mathematical developments include a complete discussion of uniqueness theorems and, where rele- vant, a discussion of maximum and miniumum principles. The primary aim of these volumes is to guide the student to pose and model engineering problems, in a mathematically correct manner, within the context of the theory of partial differential equations in mechanics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Partial Differential Equations in Mechanics 2?
Joe Walker in Jackson, MS Jul 12, 2002
I bought this text book because I was trying to solve the biharmonic equation for the bending of thin plates or slabs using the separation of variables technique. What I found in Section 8.11.13 on page 339 is exactly what I was looking for. I liked Partial Diffential Equations in Mechanics 2 so well that I also ordered Partial Differential Equations in Mechanics 1 as well. I like it equally well. I have not examined other sections as thoroughly as Section 8.11 in PDE Mechanics 2. But I can tell you that this is an excellent reference to have if you plan on solving PDEs.
I have also bought the following titles in reference to the bending of thin plates or slabs:
