Mechanics of Microstructured Solids: Cellular Materials, Fibre Reinforced Solids and Soft Tissues

This specific quantity of the sequence Lecture Notes in utilized and Computational Mechanics is a compendium of reviewed articles awarded on the eleventh EUROMECH-MECAMAT convention entitled "Mechanics of microstructured solids: mobile fabrics, fibre bolstered solids and smooth tissues", which came about in Torino (Italy) in March 10-14, 2008, on the Museo nearby delle Scienze.

Holographic Interferometry in Experimental Mechanics

This monograph bargains with different functions of holographic interferome­ test in experimental strong mechanics. Holographic interferometry has skilled a improvement of 20 years. It has loved good fortune and suffered a few disappointments in most cases because of early overestimation of its power. at the moment, improvement of holo­ image interferometry is progressing essentially as a strategy for quantita­ tive measurements.

Optical Methods in Experimental Solid Mechanics

The e-book covers the theories and physics of complex new optical measuring equipment and difficulties of experimental functionality, contemporary achievements within the uncomplicated interferometric equipment holography, speckle-interferometry, shearography in addition to linear/non-linear photoelasticity and photoviscoelasticity, Moiré- and grid-techniques.

Other approaches concentrate on the finite element simulation at the scale of yarns, representing yarns by means of 3D elements with appropriate constitutive laws [1]. Going down to the scale of fibers requires a description of the geometry of fibers in the initial configuration. Such a geometry is a priori unknown, and therefore needs to be computed, for example by simulating the weaving process.
