Solid Mechanics Applications

  • Hans Petter Langtangen
Part of the Texts in Computational Science and Engineering book series (TCSE, volume 1)


The deformation of solid materials is a subject of importance in many fields of science and engineering. For example, t he models and software in t his chapter have applications in structural engineering, material science, seismology, geology, sensor technology, and bioengineering. The present chapter covers two mathematical models: (i) elastic deformations with thermal expansion effect s and (ii) combined elast ic and plastic deformations.
