Applied High-Speed Plate Penetration Dynamics (Solid by Gabi Ben-Dor

By Gabi Ben-Dor

High-speed effect dynamics is of curiosity within the primary sciences, e.g., astrophysics and area sciences, and has a few vital purposes in army applied sciences, place of birth safeguard and engineering. compared to experiments or numerical simulations, analytical methods in influence mechanics in simple terms seldom yield valuable effects. in spite of the fact that, whilst profitable, analytical ways let us make certain normal legislation that aren't basically vital in themselves but in addition function benchmarks for next numerical simulations and experiments. the most objective of this monograph is to illustrate the capability and effectiveness of analytical equipment in utilized high-speed penetration mechanics for 2 sessions of challenge. the 1st category of challenge is form optimization of impactors penetrating into ductile, concrete and a few composite media. the second one type of challenge contains research of ballistic homes and optimization of multi-layered shields, together with spaced and two-component ceramic shields. regardless of the large use of mathematical ideas, the acquired effects have a transparent engineering that means and are awarded in an easy-to-use shape. one of many chapters is dedicated exclusively to a few universal approximate versions, and this is often the 1st time finished description of the localized impactor/medium interplay procedure is given. within the monograph the authors current systematically their theoretical leads to the sphere of high-speed effect dynamics acquired over the last decade which in basic terms partly seemed in clinical journals and meetings lawsuits.

Elasticity and Geometry: From hair curls to the nonlinear by Basile Audoly, Yves Pomeau

By Basile Audoly, Yves Pomeau

We adventure elasticity in all places in way of life: within the straightening or curling of hairs, the irreversible deformations of vehicle our bodies after a crash, or the bouncing of elastic balls in ping-pong or football. the idea of elasticity is key to the hot advancements of utilized and primary technology, akin to the bio-mechanics of DNA filaments and different macro-molecules, and the animation of digital characters in special effects and fabrics technology. during this publication, the emphasis is at the elasticity of skinny our bodies (plates, shells, rods) in reference to geometry. It covers such subject matters because the mechanics of hairs (curled and straight), the buckling instabilities of under pressure plates, together with folds and conical issues showing at greater stresses, the geometric pressure of elastic shells, and the delamination of skinny compressed movies. It applies basic equipment of classical research, together with complicated nonlinear points (bifurcation idea, boundary layer analysis), to derive exact, totally particular strategies to precise difficulties. those theoretical ideas are mentioned in reference to experiments. The ebook is self-contained. Mathematical must haves are vector research and differential equations. The e-book can function a concrete advent to nonlinear equipment in analysis.

Superplastic Forming of Advanced Metallic Materials: Methods by G Giuliano

By G Giuliano

Extremely fine-grained metals can express unparalleled ductility, referred to as superplasticity, in the course of sheet forming. the better ductility of superplastic metals makes it attainable to shape huge and intricate elements in one operation with out joints or rivets. the result's much less waste, decrease weight and production charges, excessive precision and absence of residual rigidity linked to welding which makes parts perfect for aerospace, automobile and different functions. Superplastic forming of complex metal fabrics summarises key contemporary study in this very important process.

Part one reports different types of superplastic metals, criteria for superplastic forming, approaches and gear. half discusses methods of modelling superplastic forming tactics while the ultimate a part of the e-book considers functions, together with superplastic forming of titanium, aluminium and magnesium alloys.

With its exotic editor and overseas staff of participants, Superplastic forming of complex metal fabrics is a precious reference for metallurgists and engineers in such sectors as aerospace and automobile engineering.

Note: The Publishers desire to indicate an blunders within the authorship of bankruptcy three which was once initially indexed as: G. Bernhart, Clément Ader Institute, France. the proper authorship is: G Bernhart, P. Lours, T. Cutard, V. Velay, Ecole des Mines Albi, France and F. Nazaret, Aurock, France. The Publishers apologise to the authors for this error.

  • Reviews forms of superplastic metals and criteria for superplastic forming
  • Discusses the modelling of superplastic forming, together with mathematical and finite point modelling

Theory of Elasticity and rigidity Concentration

Yukitaka Murakami, Kyushu college, Japan


A entire consultant to elasticity and rigidity concentration


Theory of Elasticity and rigidity Concentration comprehensively covers elasticity and pressure focus and demonstrates the best way to practice the idea to useful engineering difficulties. The e-book offers a brand new method of the subject with out the necessity for classy arithmetic, and the rules and which means of rigidity focus are lined with no reliance on numerical analysis.

The ebook comprises elements: half I - Theory of Elasticity and half II - Stress Concentration. half I treats the speculation of elasticity from the perspective of assisting the reader to appreciate the essence of it. half II treats the main and which means of pressure focus and courses the reader to a greater realizing of it. in the course of the ebook, many beneficial and engaging purposes of the elemental new manner of thinking are offered and explained.


Key features:

  • Unique method of the topics.
  • Encourages the readers to procure the new means of thinking and engineering judgement.
  • Includes examples, difficulties and solutions.


This ebook offers crucial examining for researchers and practitioners within the structural and mechanical engineering industries.

Microstructure and Phase Transition (The IMA Volumes in by David Kinderlehrer, Richard James, Mitchell Luskin, Jerry L.

By David Kinderlehrer, Richard James, Mitchell Luskin, Jerry L. Ericksen

This IMA quantity in arithmetic and its functions MICROSTRUCTURE AND section TRANSITION is predicated at the lawsuits of a workshop which used to be an essential component of the 1990-91 IMA software on "Phase Transitions and loose Boundaries." We thank R. Fosdick, M.E. Gurtin, W.-M. Ni and L.A. Peletier for organizing the year-long application and, in particular, D. Kinderlehrer, R. James, M. Luskin and J. Ericksen for organizing the assembly and modifying those lawsuits. We additionally take this chance to thank these firms whose monetary help made the workshop attainable: the military study place of work, and the nationwide technology Foun­ dation. A vner Friedman Willard Miller. Jr. PREFACE a lot of our conventional wisdom of fabrics and procedures is achievf'd by way of observa­ tion and research of small departures from equilibrium. Many fabrics, specially smooth alloys, ceramics, and their composites, adventure not just greater yet extra dramatic adjustments, resembling the incidence of part transitions and t.he production of disorder constructions, whilst considered on the microscopic scale. How is that this saw, how can or not it's interpreted, and the way does it impact macroscopic habit? those are the main issues of this quantity, which constitutes the lawsuits of an IMA workshop devoted to those matters.
