Editorial Review:
Nonlinear Solid Mechanics a Continuum Approach for EngineeringGerhard A. Holzapfel Graz University of Technology, Austria With amodern, comprehensive approach directed towards computationalmechanics, this book covers a unique combination of subjects atpresent unavailable in any other text. It includes vitalinformation on 'variational principles' constituting thecornerstone of the finite element method. In fact this is the onlymethod by which Nonlinear Solid Mechanics is utilized inengineering practice. The book opens with a fundamental chapter onvectors and tensors. The following chapters are based on nonlinearcontinuum mechanics - an inevitable prerequisite for computationalmechanicians. In addition, continuum field theory (applied to arepresentative sample of hyperelastic materials currently used innonlinear computations such as incompressible and compressiblematerials) is presented, as are transversely isotropic materials,composite materials, viscoelastic materials and hyperelasticmaterials with isotropic damage. Another central chapter is devotedto the thermodynamics of materials, covering both finitethermoelasticity and finite thermoviscoelasticity. Also includedare:
* an up-to-date list of almost 300 references and a comprehensiveindex
* useful examples and exercises for the student
* selected topics of statistical and continuumthermodynamics.
Furthermore, the principle of virtual work (in both the materialand spatial descriptions) is compared with two and three-fieldvariational principles particularly designed to capture kinematicconstraints such as incompressibility. All of the features combinedresult in an essential text for final year undergraduates,postgraduates and researchers in mechanical, civil and aerospaceengineering and applied maths and physics.
