By G. P. Galdi (eds.)
The content material of the amount is constituted through 4 articles. the 1st matters the idea of propagation of airplane waves in elastic media. the second one treats theoretically the linear, weakly non-linear, and non-linear balance of flows of a viscous incompressible fluid in a diverging channel. The 3rd lecture investigates the mathematical houses of the equations governing the movement of a viscous incompressible second-grade fluid, comparable to lifestyles, forte of classical strategies and balance of steady-state flows. The final lecture offers a few easy effects on wave propagation in continuum versions. the target of this ebook is to stress and to check many of the elements of curiosity which come with the required mathematical history, constitutive theories for fabric of differential sort, polarized and surprise waves, and moment sound in solids at low temperatures.
