This publication provides the idea of continuum mechanics for mechanical, thermodynamical, and electrodynamical structures. It exhibits how one can receive governing equations and it applies them by way of computing the truth. It makes use of in simple terms open-source codes constructed below the FEniCS undertaking and comprises codes for 20 engineering functions from mechanics, fluid dynamics, utilized thermodynamics, and electromagnetism. additionally, it derives and makes use of the constitutive equations together with coupling phrases, which enable to compute multiphysics difficulties by means of incorporating interactions among primitive variables, particularly, movement, temperature, and electromagnetic fields.
An engineering procedure is defined through the primitive variables fulfilling box equations which are partial differential equations in area and time. the sphere equations are usually coupled and nonlinear, in different phrases, tough to resolve. with a view to clear up the coupled, nonlinear method of partial differential equations, the e-book makes use of a unique number of open-source applications constructed below the FEniCS venture. All primitive variables are solved straight away in an absolutely coupled model by utilizing finite distinction process in time and finite aspect process in space.

It can be realized easily on a bicycle pump that is a dashpot filled with a fluid (air). If we want to pump quicker, the necessary force is higher. In a solid body this viscous behavior occurs and it can be modeled by incorporating stress rate and strain rate into the constitutive equation. In this section we will apply such models and simulate a nanoindentation experiment for a viscoelastic material. The primitive variable is the displacement field in space and time. In a Lagrangean frame, space denotes the initial positions of particles, X i .
The force can be measured by an accelerometer, simultaneously and independently, the displacement can be tracked by an optic sensor. Force times displacement is the energy. More easier is to measure the energy directly on the motor, since the power supplied to the motor as well as the standard losses of the motor are known a priori. Basically, the measurement of energy is quite natural. However, if we want to calculate the stress from the force we need to know the cross-sectional area. We cannot measure the area correctly since it is changing throughout the experiment; mostly this change is neglected.
However, the distance vector before the deformation, dX i , needs to be rewritten. We utilize Eqs. 48) mapping is according to the tensor transformation rules, as we will see it in Sect. 4 on p. 34. 18 1 Mechanics as well as (dS)2 = dX k dX k = ∂ Xk ∂ Xk dxi dx j ∂xi ∂x j ∂ Xk ∂ Xk = (F −1 )ki (F −1 )k j . 49) Therefore, the length measure in Eq. 43) becomes (dl)2 = gi j − ci j dxi dx j = δi j − (F −1 )ki (F −1 )k j dxi dx j . 50) In the current frame the displacement gradient reads u i (xk , t) = xi − X i (xk , t) ∂u i = δik − (F −1 )ik .
