Contact Mechanics in the Engineering Sciences
- Material Characterization Micromechanical Processes & Modelling Geosciences
Edited by A.P.S. Selvadurai and S. N. Atluri
The study of mechanics of contact has evolved as a legitimate field in the engineering sciences, where advanced mathematical concepts in modelling are combined with innovative solution schemes that involve both analytical and computational approaches. The subject matter is also being applied to a variety of problem areas in the engineering sciences including, tribology, wear, mechanics of tactile sensors, biomechanics, geomechanics and earth sciences, material fragmentation, environmental sciences, micro-mechanics, materials engineering, smart sensors and the nano-sciences. more >>>
 
Recent Studies in Meshless & Other Novel Computational Methods
