## Mechanics and Thermomechanics of Rubberlike SolidsGuiseppe Saccomandi, Ray W. Ogden This work gives for the first time an interdisciplinary and deep approach to the mathematical modelling of rubber-like materials considering both the molecular and phenomenological point of views. It contains an introduction to the suitable numerical techniques and an overview of experimental techniques and data with a short survey on some industrial applications. Elastic and inelastic effects are discussed in details. The book is suitable for applied mathematicians, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, material scientists and polymer scientists. |
