Item description for Finite Elasticity and Viscoelasticity: A Course in the Nonlinear Mechanics of Solids by Aleksey D. Drozdov...
This book provides a systematic and self-consistent introduction to the nonlinear continuum mechanics of solids, from the main axioms to comprehensive aspects of the theory. The objective is to expose the most intriguing aspects of elasticity and viscoelasticity with finite strains in such a way as to ensure mathematical correctness, on the one hand, and to demonstrate a wide spectrum of physical phenomena typical only of nonlinear mechanics, on the other. A novel aspect of the book is that it contains a number of examples illustrating surprising behaviour in materials with finite strains, as well ascomparisons between theoretical predictions and experimental data for rubber-like polymers and elastomers.
The book aims to fill a gap between mathematicians specializing in nonlinear continuum mechanics, and physicists and engineers who apply the methods of solid mechanics to a wide range of problems in civil and mechanical engineering, materials science, and polymer physics. The book has been developed from a graduate course in applied mathematics which the author has given for a number of years.
