Dynamics of Heterogeneous Materials Summary

Dynamics of Heterogeneous Materials by Vitali Nesterenko

This monograph deals with the behavior of essentially nonlinear heterogeneous materials in processes occurring under intense dynamic loading, where microstructural effects play the main role. This book is not an introduction to the dynamic behavior of materials, and general information available in other books is not included. The material herein is presented in a form I hope will make it useful not only for researchers working in related areas, but also for graduate students. I used it successfully to teach a course on the dynamic behavior of materials at the University of California, San Diego. Another course well suited to the topic may be nonlinear wave dynamics in solids, especially the part on strongly nonlinear waves. About 100 problems presented in the book at the end of each chapter will help the reader to develop a deeper understanding of the subject. I tried to follow a few rules in writing this book: (1) To focus on strongly nonlinear phenomena where there is no small parameter with respect to the amplitude of disturbance, including solitons, shock waves, and localized shear. (2) To take into account phenomena sensitive to materials structure, where typical space scale of material parameters (particle size, cell size) are presented in the models or are variable in experimental research.

Dynamics of Heterogeneous Materials Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This monograph describes the mechanical, physical, and chemical phenomena in powders and other heterogeneous materials under high-pressure dynamic deformation. ... Based on experimental observations, the treatment focuses on strongly nonlinear phenomena, such as shock waves, solitons, and localized shear. ... Intended for graduate students as well as researchers, the book includes more than 90 problems at the ends of chapters to help the reader develop a deeper understanding of the material." (Applied Mechanics Reviews, Vol. 56 (4), 2003)
