By Gérard A. Maugin
Mixing medical, historical and socio-economic imaginative and prescient, this certain e-book enhances formerly released volumes at the historical past of continuum mechanics from this exceptional writer. during this quantity, Gérard A. Maugin appears to be like on the interval from the renaissance to the 20th century and he contains an appraisal of the ever enduring pageant among molecular and continuum modelling views.
Chapters hint early works in hydraulics and fluid mechanics no longer coated within the different volumes and the writer investigates experimental ways, basically earlier than the advent of a real notion of tension tensor. The therapy of such subject matters because the viscoelasticity of solids and plasticity, fracture conception, and the position of geometry as a cornerstone of the sphere, are all explored. Readers will discover a form of socio-historical appraisal of the seminal contributions through our direct masters within the moment half the 20th century. The research of the educating and learn texts through Duhem, Poincaré and Hilbert on continuum mechanics is vital: those give you the most useful documentary foundation on which a revival of continuum mechanics and its formalization have been provided within the past due 20th century.
Altogether, the 3 volumes provide a beneficiant conspectus of the advancements of continuum mechanics among the 16th century and the sunrise of the twenty-first century. Mechanical engineers, utilized mathematicians and physicists alike will all have an interest during this paintings which appeals to all curious scientists for whom continuum mechanics as a vividly evolving technological know-how nonetheless has its personal mysteries.
