Download Continuum Mechanics through the Ages - From the Renaissance by Gérard A. Maugin PDF

By Gérard A. Maugin

Mixing clinical, ancient and socio-economic imaginative and prescient, this special ebook enhances formerly released volumes at the background of continuum mechanics from this amazing writer. during this quantity, Gérard A. Maugin appears to be like on the interval from the renaissance to the 20 th 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 now not coated within the different volumes and the writer investigates experimental methods, primarily earlier than the creation of a real proposal of rigidity tensor. The remedy of such subject matters because the viscoelasticity of solids and plasticity, fracture thought, 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 20 th century. The research of the instructing and study texts via Duhem, Poincaré and Hilbert on continuum mechanics is vital: those give you the most beneficial 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 supply 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.
