Continuum mechanics and thermodynamics are foundational theories of many fields of technology and engineering. This ebook provides a clean viewpoint on those primary subject matters, connecting micro- and nanoscopic theories and emphasizing subject matters proper to knowing solid-state thermo-mechanical habit. offering transparent, in-depth assurance, the e-book provides a self-contained remedy of issues at once on the topic of nonlinear fabrics modeling. It starts off with vectors and tensors, finite deformation kinematics, the elemental stability and conservation legislation, and classical thermodynamics. It then discusses the rules of constitutive idea and examples of constitutive versions, provides a foundational therapy of power rules and balance concept, and concludes with instance closed-form suggestions and the necessities of finite components. including its significant other e-book, Modeling fabrics, (Cambridge collage Press, 2011), this paintings offers the basics of multiscale fabrics modeling for graduate scholars and researchers in physics, fabrics technology, chemistry and engineering. additional information in this booklet is accessible on the following web site maintained by way of the authors: http://www.modelingmaterials.org

This notation will sometimes be used when tensor operations can be represented by matrix multiplication and other matrix operations on tensor components. Before proceeding to the definition of tensors, we begin by introducing the basic rules of indicial notation, starting with the most basic rule: the summation convention. 2 Summation and dummy indices Consider the following sum:12 S = a1 x1 + a2 x2 + · · · + an d xn d . We can write this expression using the summation symbol Σ: nd S= nd ai xi = i=1 nd aj xj = j =1 am xm .

En d ) must be linearly dependent. Hence, λ0 a + λ1 e1 + · · · + λn d en d = 0. If λ0 = 0, then the only solution is λ1 = λ2 = · · · = λn d = 0. This cannot be true since a = 0. Thus, λ0 = 0, and ai = −λi /λ0 . The choice of basis vectors is not unique; however, the components of a vector in a particular basis are unique. This is easy to show by assuming the contrary and using the linear dependence of the basis vectors. Next we introduce the concept of multilinear functions that will be important for the definition of the inner product and later for the general definition of tensors.

20) where ei are the basis vectors (see Fig. 2) and δij is the Kronecker delta defined in Eqn. 3). By convention, we choose basis vectors that form a right-handed triad (this 21 22 Although we most often encounter the prefix “rect” in the word rectangle (where it means “right” as in a 90 degree angle), its occurrence in the word “rectilinear” does not refer to angles at all. ” “Cartesian” refers to the French mathematician Ren´e Descartes who among other things worked on developing an algebra for Euclidean geometry leading to the field of analytical geometry.
