Item description for Continuum Mechanics and Theory of Materials by Peter Haupt & J. A. Kurth...

This treatise attempts to portray the ideas and general principles of the theory of materials within the framework of phenomenological continuum mechanics. It is a well-written mathematical introduction to classical continuum mechanics and deals with concepts such as elasticity, plasticity, viscoelasticity and viscoplasticity in nonlinear materials. The aim of a general theory of material behaviour is to provide a classified range of possibilities from which a user can select the constitutive model that applies best. The book will be invaluable to graduate students of materials science in engineering and in physics. 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Continuum Mechanics and Theory of Materials?

could be a standard work  Jul 10, 2008
With the sound implicit understanding that the reader is very well in tensor calculus the author shows the comprehensive basics of continua mechanics (kinematics, balance relations of mechanics and thermodynamics, objectivity and principle of dual variables) and material behaviour (elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, viscoplasticity including introduction, experimental observation and continuum thermodynamics). The extension for higher kinematics such as micropolar, micromorphic, nonlocal or higher order gradient theories is not given. But the reader must not expect these topics because of space reasons. Topics like dual variables and the thermodynamical background of material behaviour assign this book. The balancing act between a correct representation for mathematicians and a practical one for engineers is done more than successfully. The matters are shown detailed, accurately, entirely and good readable. No question, this book is a very outstanding depiction of this field.
