Item description for Models and Analysis of Quasistatic Contact: Variational Methods (Lecture Notes in Physics) by Meir Shillor...
The mathematical theory of contact mechanics is a growing field in engineering and scientific computing. This book is intended as a unified and readily accessible source for mathematicians, applied mathematicians, mechanicians, engineers and scientists, as well as advanced students. The first part describes models of the processes involved like friction, heat generation and thermal effects, wear, adhesion and damage. The second part presentsmany mathematical models of practical interest and demonstrates the close interaction and cross-fertilization between contact mechanics and the theory of variational inequalities. The last part reviews further results, gives many references tocurrent research and discusses open problems and future developments. The book can be read by mechanical engineers interested in applications.In addition, some theorems and their proofs are given as examples for the mathematical tools used in the models.
