An updated and expanded edition of the popular guide to basic continuum mechanics and computational techniques This updated third edition of the popular reference covers state-of-the-art computational techniques for basic continuum mechanics modeling of both small and large deformations. Approaches to developing complex models are described in detail, and numerous examples are presented demonstrating how computational algorithms can be developed using basic continuum mechanics approaches. The integration of geometry and analysis for the study of the motion and behaviors of materials under varying conditions is an increasingly popular approach in continuum mechanics, and absolute nodal coordinate formulation (ANCF) is rapidly emerging as the best way to achieve that integration. At the same time, simulation software is undergoing significant changes which will lead to the seamless fusion of CAD, finite element, and multibody system computer codes in one computational environment. Computational Continuum Mechanics , Third Edition is the only book to provide in-depth coverage of the formulations required to achieve this integration. Provides detailed coverage of the absolute nodal coordinate formulation (ANCF), a popular new approach to the integration of geometry and analysis Provides detailed coverage of the floating frame of reference (FFR) formulation, a popular well-established approach for solving small deformation problems Supplies numerous examples of how complex models have been developed to solve an array of real-world problems Covers modeling of both small and large deformations in detail Demonstrates how to develop computational algorithms using basic continuum mechanics approaches Computational Continuum Mechanics , Third Edition is designed to function equally well as a text for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students and as a working reference for researchers, practicing engineers, and scientists working in computational mechanics, bio-mechanics, computational biology, multibody system dynamics, and other fields of science and engineering using the general continuum mechanics theory. Ahmed A. Shabana, PhD, is University Distinguished Professor and the Richard and Loan Hill Professor of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Professor Shabana is the author of several books and serves on the Editorial Board of several journals. He served as the Chair of the ASME Design Engineering Division, the Founding Chair of the ASME Technical Committee on Multibody Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics, and the Founding Chair of the ASME International Conference of Multibody Systems, Nonlinear Dynamics, and Control. Professor Shabana is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and a Fellow of the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE International). He has received several awards, including the Humboldt Prize, the Fulbright Research Scholar Award, the ASME DAlembert Award, and Honorary Doctorate, Honorary Professorship, and Best Paper Awards, as well as several teaching and research awards from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Introduction to Computational Contact Mechanics: A Geometrical Approach covers the fundamentals of computational contact mechanics and focuses on its practical implementation. Part one of this textbook focuses on the underlying theory and covers essential information about differential geometry and mathematical methods which are necessary to build the computational algorithm independently from other courses in mechanics. The geometrically exact theory for the computational contact mechanics is described in step-by-step manner, using examples of strict derivation from a mathematical point of view. The final goal of the theory is to construct in the independent approximation form /so-called covariant form, including application to high-order and isogeometric finite elements. The second part of a book is a practical guide for programming of contact elements and is written in such a way that makes it easy for a programmer to implement using any programming language. All programming examples are accompanied by a set of verification examples allowing the user to learn the research verification technique, essential for the computational contact analysis. Key features: Covers the fundamentals of computational contact mechanics Covers practical programming, verification and analysis of contact problems Presents the geometrically exact theory for computational contact mechanics Describes algorithms used in well-known finite element software packages Describes modeling of forces as an inverse contact algorithm Includes practical exercises Contains unique verification examples such as the generalized Euler formula for a rope on a surface, and the impact problem and verification of thå percussion center Accompanied by a website hosting software Introduction to Computational Contact Mechanics: A Geometrical Approach is an ideal textbook for graduates and senior undergraduates, and is also a useful reference for researchers and practitioners working in computational mechanics. Alexander Konyukhov has been working at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany since 2002, where he has made his Habilitation in 2010 in the field of Geometrically exact theory of contact interaction. His main areas of research are computational and theoretical mechanics. He is recognized expert in the field of Computational Contact Mechanics, authors of other books in Computational Contact Mechanics and has numerous publications in international journals. His special teaching interest in Computational Contact Mechanics has led to this book. Ridvan Izi is a member of the academic staff in the Institute of Mechanics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His work focuses on computational contact problems.

Scientific Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Engineering - Mechanical Engineering, grade: A, KTH Royal Institute of Technology (School of Engineering Sciences), course: Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics, language: English, abstract: Concentrating Solar Power Receiver (CSPs) collect solar radiation with large mirrors and reflect them concentrated on a receiver. Here, a Dish-Stirling type thermal cycle is driven. One of the key preconditions for a cost competitive production of power is a good efficiency factor. Within the framework of this project, we want to examine and qualitatively quantify the heat losses of a Dish Sterling Concentrating Solar Power Receiver. It is the aim to determine the individual driving forces for heat losses by analysing natural convection on the one hand and two different setups of forced convection on the other hand. In section 2, we present the abstract model of a solar receiver. Then, we will discuss the necessary models to simulate turbulent flow and heat transfer of air and justify our choice of numerical methods to solve the governing equations in ANSYS Fluent. Furthermore, we will introduce performance factors to monitor the heat losses of the solar receiver. Coherent with the two main physical phenomena of heat losses, we subdivided the report in normal convection (NC, section 3) and forced convection (FC, section 4), where we outline the specific model characteristics, boundary conditions, grid requirements and benchmarks respectively. A profound analysis of the results and an outlook on further research in section 5 finalise the report.

The book teaches engineers many new things about a classical topic which suddenly is again in the center of interest because of its relevance for finite element analysis, for the accuracy of computational methods. It shows that influence functions play a fundamental role in the finite element analysis of structures and practically all of linear computational mechanics. It also strives to add new and important insights into modern structural analysis and into computational mechanics by establishing the central role of influence functions for the numerical analysis and to lay a new foundation to the energy and variational principles. Friedel Hartmann has been Professor for Civil Engineering at the University of Kassel, Germany. He is author of Greens Functions and Finite Elements and Structural Analysis with Finite Elements, both published by Springer.
