R. D. Mindlin and Applied Mechanics is a collection of studies in the development of Applied Mechanics dedicated to Professor Raymond D. Mindlin by his former students. This book contains the development of specific areas of Mechanics of Solids to which Mindlin has contributed most.
Organized into eight chapters, this text first discusses the past, present and likely future of photoelasticity. Subsequent chapters explore the development of the three-dimensional theory of elasticity; generalized elastic continua; bodies in contact with applications to granular media; and waves and vibrations in isotropic and anisotropic plates. Other chapters discuss the vibrations and wave propagation in rods, piezoelectric crystals, and electro-elasticity. Lastly, the lattice theories and continuum mechanics are described.
