The mechanical behaviour of complex bodies described in this book gives rise to a wide variety of challenging problems from the macroscopic- to the nano-world. The chapters composing this book explore various aspects of these problems, giving rise to new areas of discussion together with specific solutions.
Contributors are Carlo Cercignani, Gianfranco Capriz, Pierre Degond, Antonio Fasano, Harley T. Johnson, Sukky Jun, Krishna Kannan, Wing Kam Liu, Alberto Mancini, Paolo Maria Mariano, Ingo MÃ¼ller, Kumbakonan R. Rajagopal, Jan Jerzy Slawianowski.
The book will be a useful tool for researchers and students working on the basic mathematical and physical problems accruing from the mechanics of materials.
This book is suitable for researchers and ph.D. students.
