By Konstantin Naumenko, Marcus Aßmus

This quantity offers a set of contributions on complicated techniques of continuum mechanics, which have been written to rejoice the sixtieth birthday of Prof. Holm Altenbach. The contributions are on issues concerning the theoretical foundations for the research of rods, shells and third-dimensional solids, formula of constitutive types for complex fabrics, in addition to improvement of recent methods to the modeling of wear and fractures.

Tribology and Mechanics of Magnetic Storage Devices

On the grounds that January 1990, while the 1st variation ofthis first-of-a-kind booklet seemed, there was a lot experimental and theoretical development within the multi­ disciplinary topic of tribology and mechanics of magnetic garage units. the topic has matured right into a rigorous self-discipline, and plenty of collage tribology and mechanics classes now many times comprise fabric on magnetic garage units.

François was even elected President of the French Society of Mathematics (Société Mathématique de France) in 1913 one year before his death. François was certainly confronted to the works of Adhémar Barré de Saint-Venant (1797–1886) and Joseph V. Boussinesq (1842– 1929) at the ENPC. In his engineering curriculum he met with the works of his great predecessors, namely, Gabriel Lamé (1795–1870) and Alfred Clebsch (1833–1872), both authors of the first comprehensive treatises on elasticity (cf. Lamé 1852; with a tremendous expansion by Barré de Saint-Venant 1883 for the latter in French translation), and also Gustav Kirchhoff (1824–1887) in Kirchhoff (1852) and James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1873) (cf.

Maugin an influential encyclopaedic treatise on rational mechanics (starting in 1893 with many augmented editions) and practically became the godfather of all mechanicians in France in the period of interest. Koenigs, a student of Darboux, became professor of mechanics at the Sorbonne while publishing a successful treatise on kinematics (Lessons of 1895–1897, Koenigs 1895, see also Lovett 1900). Both Darboux and Koenigs left a strong print on the Cosserats’ work of 1896 as witnessed by the large number of citations to their books.

For a body in its natural state (homogeneous and without deformation), one then considers homogeneous deformations from this natural state with the same absolute temperature T for all material points. The state of this body after deformation from the natural state is defined by six strains and the temperature. It is assumed (p. 60) that these seven parameters remain within acceptable limits so that any alteration of the body may be viewed as a continuous sequence of equilibrium states and it corresponds to a reversible evolution (following Duhem).
