Green's Function and Boundary Elements of Multifield Materials contains a comprehensive treatment of multifield materials under coupled thermal, magnetic, electric, and mechanical loads. Its easy-to-understand text clarifies some of the most advanced techniques for deriving Green's function and the related boundary element formulation of magnetoelectroelastic materials: Radon transform, potential function approach, Fourier transform. Our hope in preparing this book is to attract interested readers and researchers to a new field that continues to provide fascinating and technologically important challenges. You will benefit from the authors' thorough coverage of general principles for each topic, followed by detailed mathematical derivation and worked examples as well as tables and figures where appropriate.

About the Author

Qing-Hua Qin

Dr. Qinghua Qin received his Bachelor of Engineering degree (1982) in Mechanical Engineering from Chang An University, China and obtained his Master of Science degree (1984) and PhD (1990) in applied mechanics from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China. He joined the faculty of the Department of Mechanics at HUST from 1984 until he left for the University of Stuttgart (Germany) with the DAAD/K.C. Wong research fellowship in 1994. From 1995 to 1997, he returned to China as a postdoctoral associate at Tsinghua University. He was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship from the Australian Research Council (ARC) in 1997 and a Professorial Fellowship of ARC in 2002 at The University of Sydney, Australia and stayed there till December 2003. He has been a Professor at the Research School of Engineering of the Australian National University, Australia from 2004 to 2021. He is now working at the Department of Engineering, Shenzhen MSU-BIT University, China. He is also appointed a guest professor at HUST since 2000 and Tianjin University since 2006.
