ECM2 is a completely updated and expanded Second Edition of the well-established Encyclopedia of Computational Mechanics. The project has once again been prepared under the guidance of three of the world’s foremost experts in the field: Erwin Stein, Professor Emeritus, Stein Institut für Baumechanik und Numerische Mechanik, Leibniz Universität, Hannover, Germany René de Borst, Centenary Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Sheffield, UK Thomas J. R. Hughes, Peter O'Donnell Jr. Chair in Computational and Applied Mathematics and Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, University of Texas at Austin, TX USA Though following the same structure as the first edition, ECM2 has been expanded from three to six volumes with the subjects "Fundamentals" in Volumes 1 & 2, "Solids and Structures" in Volumes 3 & 4, and "Fluids" in Volumes 5 & 6. It is published both in print and on line. Volumes 1 & 2, Fundamentals , contain contributions related to mathematics, mechanics, and computer science, and are structured as discretization methods, treating approximations with finite differences, discrete variational forms, boundary integral equations and further problem-oriented techniques, and the generation and visualization of geometry; meshes and results; various direct and iterative solvers; and time-dependent problems. Volumes 3 & 4, Solids and Structures , are organized into five different parts, namely, structural behavior; constitutive theories and their implementation; materials and processing; interaction problems; and identification, stochastics, and optimization. Volumes 5 & 6, Fluids, builds on the fundamentals described in Volumes 1 & 2. The chapters in Volumes 5 & 6 fall within four main groupings. The first grouping includes chapters describing additional basic methodologies used in computational fluid dynamics. The second comprises chapters on various aspects of incompressible viscous flows. The third part focuses on compressible fluid dynamics. The fourth pertains to problems involving moving domains and free surfaces, and application areas. With contributions from more than 50 leading experts drawn from around the globe, this is an essential and comprehensive reference for any university engineering department or corporation, containing must-have, up-to-date content of huge value to researchers, students and practitioners alike.

The History of the Theory of Structures

This book traces the evolution of theory of structures and strength of materials - the development of the geometrical thinking of the Renaissance to become the fundamental engineering science discipline rooted in classical mechanics. Starting with the strength experiments of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, the author examines the emergence of individual structural analysis methods and their formation into theory of structures in the 19th century. For the first time, a book of this kind outlines the development from classical theory of structures to the structural mechanics and computational mechanics of the 20th century. In doing so, the author has managed to bring alive the differences between the players with respect to their engineering and scientific profiles and personalities, and to create an understanding for the social context. Brief insights into common methods of analysis, backed up by historical details, help the reader gain an understanding of the history of structural mechanics from the standpoint of modern engineering practice. A total of 175 brief biographies of important personalities in civil and structural engineering as well as structural mechanics plus an extensive bibliography round off this work.

Small scale features and processes occurring at nanometer and femtosecond scales have a profound impact on what happens at a larger scale and over an extensive period of time. The primary objective of this volume is to reflect the state-of-the-art in multiscale mathematics, modeling, and simulations and to address the following barriers: What is the information that needs to be transferred from one model or scale to another and what physical principles must be satisfied during the transfer of information? What are the optimal ways to achieve such transfer of information? How can variability of physical parameters at multiple scales be quantified and how can it be accounted for to ensure design robustness? The multiscale approaches in space and time presented in this volume are grouped into two main categories: information-passing and concurrent. In the concurrent approaches various scales are simultaneously resolved, whereas in the information-passing methods the fine scale is modeled and its gross response is infused into the continuum scale. The issue of reliability of multiscale modeling and simulation tools which focus on a hierarchy of multiscale models and an a posteriori model of error estimation including uncertainty quantification, is discussed in several chapters. Component software that can be effectively combined to address a wide range of multiscale simulations is also described. Applications range from advanced materials to nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), biological systems, and nanoporous catalysts where physical phenomena operates across 12 orders of magnitude in time scales and 10 orders of magnitude in spatial scales. This volume is a valuable reference book for scientists, engineers and graduate students practicing in traditional engineering and science disciplines as well as in emerging fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, microelectronics and energy.
