Computational Continuum Mechanics, 3rd Edition
Computational Continuum Mechanics, 3rd Edition is an updated edition covering basic continuum mechanics and computational techniques. It covers the important issue of the integration of geometry and analysis which is a new and emerging topic not covered in many books. This is the only book that discusses the new approach of absolute nodal coordinate formulation, which is emerging as a popular approach for the integartion of geometry and analysis. Both problems of small and large deformations are covered in detail and it is demonstrated how the computational algorithms can be developed using the basic continuum mechanics approaches. The development of complex models is also explained.
