Identify the geometry of the solid to be modeled; —3. Their combined citations are counted only for the first article.

Applied Mechanics of Solids

Devise a mathematical model. Cyclic hardening properties of hard-drawn copper and rail steel AF Bower Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids 37 4, This electronic text summarizes the physical laws, mathematical methods, and computer algorithms that are used to predict the response of materials and structures to mechanical or thermal loading. Add to Wish List. This “Cited by” count includes citations to the following articles in Scholar. In these applications the Reynolds number for the fluid flow is much lower, and fluid forces are dominated by viscous effects.

The deformed shape of a structure or component subjected to mechanical, thermal or electrical loading; —2. Review of Vectors and Matrices A. Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids 47 11, The influence of crack face friction and trapped fluid on surface initiated rolling contact fatigue cracks AF Bower Journal of Tribology 4, Rods, Plates and Shells Objectives and Applications 2.


Professor of Engineering, Brown University. The influence of strain hardening on cumulative plastic deformation in rolling and sliding line contact AF Bower, KL Johnson Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids 37 4, Using the wrong model, or inaccurate material properties, will always completely invalidate your predictions. True but it is usually not obvious how much of the component to model, and at what level of detail.

At the other extreme, it is often not obvious how much geometrical detail needs to be included in a computation. It will help readers make optimal use of commercial finite element programs to achieve the most accurate prediction results possible. If not, the results can serve as a guide in refining the calculation. The system can’t perform the operation now.

Predict the fatigue life of a component under cyclic loading; 3. Choose a method of analysis; —7. For modeling brittle fracture, fatigue failure, or for calculating critical loads required to initiate plastic flow in a component, it is very important to model the geometry in great detail, because geometrical features can lead to stress concentrations that initiate damage.
