Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


The majority of physical, mechanical and engineering problems dealing with nonlinear processes cannot be solved by the direct methods. The main goal of the researchers is the construction of a simplified model, which can be solved by an approximate method without loosing the physical content.
