Mechanics Of Generalized Continua: One Hundred Years After The Cosserats (advances In Mechanics And Mathematics)

In their 1909 publication Thorie des corps dformables, Eugne and Franois Cosserat made a historic contribution to materials science by establishing the fundamental principles of the mechanics of generalized continua. The chapters collected in this volume showcase the many areas of continuum mechanics that grew out of the foundational work of the Cosserat brothers. The included contributions provide a detailed survey of the most recent theoretical developments in the field of generalized continuum mechanics and can serve as a useful reference for graduate students and researchers in mechanical engineering, materials science, applied physics and applied mathematics.
