Thermomechanics of Solids and Structures: Physical Mechanisms, Continuum Mechanics, and Applications starts with a thorough introduction to continuum mechanics, divided into two main sections covering kinematics and balance equations. From there the book explores the strict thermodynamic frameworks of thermoelasticity, thermoplasticity, and creep covering constitutive equations, the physical mechanisms of deformation, as well as computational aspects. The book concludes with coverage of the thermodynamics of solids and applications of the constitutive three-dimensional model to both one-dimensional homogeneous and composite beam structures. Practical applications of the theories and techniques covered are emphasized throughout the book and analytical solutions are provided for various problems surrounding thermoelastic analysis of homogeneous and composite structures.

Key Features

  • Provides foundational knowledge on continuum mechanics covering kinematics, balance equations, isothermal elasticity and plasticity, variational principles, and more
  • Presents applications of constitutive 3D models to homogeneous and composite beams, including equations for stress and displacement estimation in thermoelastic beam problems
  • Reviews experimental results of thermoelastic material behavior with case studies to support the reviews
  • Covers the inelastic behavior of materials at elevated temperatures with experimental results for both monotonic and cyclic tensile tests presented
  • Looks at the physical mechanisms, experimental results, and constitutive modeling of creep
