Continuum Thermomechanics:: The Art and Science of Modelling by Gérard A. Maugin, Raymonde Drouot, François Sidoroff

By Gérard A. Maugin, Raymonde Drouot, François Sidoroff

Contributed via world-renowned experts at the social gathering of Paul Germain's eightieth birthday, this specified booklet displays the foundational works and the highbrow impact of this writer. It provides the world of recent thermomechanics with its remarkable wealth of functions to the behaviour of fabrics, even if strong or fluid. The thirty-one contributions stick to an easygoing autobiographical cartoon by means of Paul Germain, and spotlight the facility and richness of a methodological method of the phenomenology of many fabrics. This strategy combines harmoniously thermodynamics and continuum thought with the intention to supply exploitable, thermodynamically admissible versions of a giant number of behaviours and phenomena, together with these of diffusion, thermoelasticity, viscoplasticity, leisure, hysteresis, wetting, shape-memory results, progress, section transitions, balance, fracture, shocks, machining of fabrics, microstructured solids, advanced fluids, and so on. particularly geared toward graduate scholars, researchers, and engineers in mechanical engineering and fabrics technological know-how, this ebook additionally provides the state-of-the-art in an energetic box of analysis and opens new horizons in different medical fields, akin to utilized arithmetic and utilized physics, as a result highbrow pride and amazing potency supplied by way of the encouraged procedure.

Application of the theory of Cosserat media to the elasto-plastic behaviour of poly crystals. Maurizio Brocato*, Alain Ehrlacher†, Philippe Tamagny† Abstract Professor Germain has proposed in [Germain, 1973] a theory of Cosserat continua obtained through the principle of virtual power. We propose here an application of that theory to the elastoplastic behaviour of polycrystals.

The latent heat of vaporization can be written as and being two constants. is the latent heat at the temperature in (5), we get a differential relation which may be integrated Introducing (8) Another relation between these parameters can be obtained in order to describe the system. This relation proves the existence of a liquid-water potential temperature. A difficulty is that it cannot easily be written using the classical variables (see Bougeault [1981]). On the contrary, it is possible to deduce from Dalton's law and the equation (9) a relation defining the existence of a so-called saturation concentration of the water vapor in the gaseous phase, namely a function such that the property is identically satisfied.
