Mechanics and Physics of Energy Density [EBook] : Characterization of material/structure behaviour with and without damage / by George C. Sih, Emmanuel E. Gdoutos.
Material technology has become so diversified in theories and the construction of novel microstructures that the researchers and practitioners are drifting further apart. This book is based on material presented at an International Symposium in Xanthi, Greece in July 1989. The symposium attracted a...
