    J. C. Hallman: IMG One in the Oven; or, Why You Should Suck It Up and Meet Your Favorite Author

    At first, I was dead set against it. I would not try to meet Nicholson Baker while I was writing a book about Nicholson Baker. I had a good reason... Continue »

Microstructural Randomness and Scaling in Mechanics of Materials


Microstructural Randomness and Scaling in Mechanics of Materials Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Microstructural Randomness in Mechanics of Materials provides a number of stochastic models and methods of use in mechanics of materials along with many different types of applications in engineering. Part One, Fundamentals, shows the reader the tools available to use when solving one-, two-, and three-dimensional problems related to the mechanics of random materials. Part Two, Applications, builds on the information learned about the various methods by exploring applications important to research in the field of applied mathematics. The book's features include an introduction to general continuum mechanics and statistical continuum theories and complete coverage of lattice models and planar plasticity.
