Continuum Thermomechanics: The Art and Science of Modelling by Gérard A. Maugin, Raymonde Drouot, François Sidoroff

By Gérard A. Maugin, Raymonde Drouot, François Sidoroff

Contributed via world-renowned experts at the celebration of Paul Germain's eightieth birthday, this specific ebook displays the foundational works and the highbrow impact of this writer. It offers the area of recent thermomechanics with its awesome wealth of purposes to the behaviour of fabrics, no matter if reliable or fluid. The thirty-one contributions stick to an easygoing autobiographical caricature through Paul Germain, and spotlight the ability and richness of a methodological method of the phenomenology of many fabrics. This process combines harmoniously thermodynamics and continuum conception so that it will offer exploitable, thermodynamically admissible versions of a big number of behaviours and phenomena, together with these of diffusion, thermoelasticity, viscoplasticity, leisure, hysteresis, wetting, shape-memory results, progress, part transitions, balance, fracture, shocks, machining of fabrics, microstructured solids, complicated fluids, and so on.
particularly geared toward graduate scholars, researchers, and engineers in mechanical engineering and fabrics technology, this booklet additionally offers the state-of-the-art in an lively box of analysis and opens new horizons in different medical fields, similar to utilized arithmetic and utilized physics, end result of the highbrow delight and impressive potency supplied via the endorsed procedure.

Writing, as Lord Rayleigh did in fluid mechanics, the function of dissipation, it was noted that it is a homogeneous function of order two for viscoelastic materials, like for a fluid, but of order one only, for a perfect elastic plastic material. For the professor I was, it was very interesting: it opened the possibility to use the same procedure in order to derive basic constitutive laws for two different types of materials. The second ingredient came from a wonderful note of Jean-Jacques Moreau in the Comptes rendus de l’Académie des Sciences.

Let us call the field of tensor giving the affine deformation of lattice in a reference configuration (which may be initial with respect to the studied process); let G be the same field in the present configuration. Let F denote the usual gradient of the material transplacement from the initial to the present setting. In general F has to fulfill the compatibility conditions (Grad denoting differentiation in the reference setting), but G has not. If no plastic flow has occurred, then Otherwise we can define the plastic transformation of the reference crystal as 47 In multiple slip plasticity, the plastic flow presumedly does not alter the lattice directions, the changes of which are thus either reversible or due to rotation.
