Mechanics of Advanced Materials: Analysis of Properties and Performance

Vadim V. Silberschmidt, "Mechanics of Advanced Materials: Analysis of Properties and Performance"
English | ISBN: 3319171178 | 2015 | 208 pages | PDF | 7 MB

The last decades have seen a large extension of types of materials employed in various applications. In many cases these materials demonstrate mechanical properties and performance that vary significantly from those of their traditional counterparts. Such uniqueness is sought - or even specially manufactured - to meet increased requirements on modern components and structures related to their specific use. As a result, mechanical behaviors of these materials under different loading and environmental conditions are outside the boundaries of traditional mechanics of materials, presupposing development of new characterization techniques, theoretical descriptions and numerical tools. The book presents interesting examples of recent developments in this area. Among the studied materials are bulk metallic glasses, metamaterials, special composites, piezoelectric smart structures, nonwovens, etc.
