By Ivan Argatov, Gennady Mishuris

This ebook provides a accomplished and unifying method of articular touch mechanics with an emphasis on frictionless touch interplay of skinny cartilage layers. the 1st a part of the booklet (Chapters 1–4) experiences the result of asymptotic research of the deformational habit of skinny elastic and viscoelastic layers. A finished overview of the literature is mixed with the authors’ unique contributions. The compressible and incompressible instances are handled individually with a spotlight on detailed strategies for asymptotic types of frictionless touch for skinny transversely isotropic layers bonded to inflexible substrates formed like elliptic paraboloids. the second one half (Chapters five, 6, and seven) bargains with the non-axisymmetric touch of skinny transversely isotropic biphasic layers and offers the asymptotic modelling method for tibio-femoral touch. The 3rd a part of the publication includes bankruptcy eight, which covers touch difficulties for skinny bonded inhomogeneous transversely isotropic elastic layers and bankruptcy nine, which addresses numerous perturbational elements in touch difficulties and introduces the sensitivity of articular touch mechanics.

This publication is meant for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars, researchers within the sector of biomechanics, and engineers and concerned about the research and layout of thin-layer structures.

Tribology and Mechanics of Magnetic Storage Devices

For the reason that January 1990, whilst the 1st version ofthis first-of-a-kind ebook seemed, there was a lot experimental and theoretical growth within the multi­ disciplinary topic of tribology and mechanics of magnetic garage units. the topic has matured right into a rigorous self-discipline, and lots of collage tribology and mechanics classes now sometimes comprise fabric on magnetic garage units.
