Finite Elements - An Introduction to the Method and Error Estimation

Author: Ivo Babuska, John Whiteman and Theofanis Strouboulis
ISBN: 13: 9780198506706  /  10: 0198506708
Info: December 2010, Oxford University Press, Paperback, 352 pp.

Description : Most books on finite elements are devoted either to mathematical theory or to engineering applications-but not to both. Finite Elements: An Introduction to the Method and Error Estimation , by Ivo Babuska, John J. Whiteman, and Theofanis Strouboulis, seeks to bridge this gap by presenting the main theoretical ideas of the finite element method and the analysis of its errors in an accessible way. At the same time, it also presents computed numbers, which not only illustrate the theory but can only be analyzed using the theory. This approach, both dual and interacting between theory and computation makes this book unique. Much research is currently being done into reliability in computational modelling, involving both validation of the mathematical models and verification of the numerical schemes. By treating finite element error analysis in this way this book is a significant contribution to the verification process of finite element modelling in the context of reliability.

Split Hopkinson (Kolsky) Bar: Design, Testing and Applications 

Author: Weinong Chen, Bo Song
ISBN: 978-1- 4419 - 7981-0
Info: 2011, Springer, Hardback, 388 pp.
Link: More Info  

Description : The authors systematically describe the general principles of Kolsky bars, or split Hopkinson bars, which are widely used for obtaining dynamic material properties. Modifications are introduced for obtaining reliable data. Specific experiment design guidelines are provided to subject the specimen to desired testing conditions. Detailed Kolsky-bar examples are given for different classes of materials (brittle, ductile, soft, etc) and for different loading conditions (tension, torsion, triaxial, high/low temperatures, intermediate strain rate, etc). The Kolsky bars used for dynamic structural characterization are briefly introduced. A collection of dynamic properties of various materials under various testing conditions is included which may serve as a reference database. This book assists both beginners and experienced professionals in characterizing high-rate material response with high quality and consistency. Readers who may benefit from this work include university students, instructors, R & D professionals, and scholars/engineers in solid mechanics, aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering, as well as materials science and engineering.

Fragmentation of rings and shells
The Legacy of N.F. Mott

Author: Dennis Grady
Series: Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena
Editor: Springer 2006
Link: www.springer.com

Description: The present book surveys the theoretical analysis put forth by Mott with particular focus on his efforts to characterize the size and distribution of fragments resulting from a dynamic fragmentation event. Copies of the original internal reports of Mott and his co-workers are included. The book also pursues additional theoretical analysis with the intent of delving further into the physical ideas and unfinished analysis implicit in Mott`s original studies. This book will be of interest to all scientists and engineers concerned with the dynamic fracture and fragmentation of solid bodies subject to intense transient loads imparted by explosive detonation and high-velocity impact from both the historical and modern perspective.

Organic chemistry of explosives

Author: Jai Prakash Agrawal & Robert Hodgson
Info: December 2006
Editor: John Wiley Sons Ltd
Link : http://www.wileyeurope.com

Description : This is the first text that brings together the essential methods and routes used for the synthesis of organic explosives in a single volume. Assuming no prior knowledge, the book discusses everything from the simplest mixed acid nitration of toluene, to the complex synthesis of highly energetic caged nitro compounds.

Foundations of stress waves

Author: Lili Wang, Ningbo University, China
Editor: Elsevier
Link: www.elsevier.com

Description : The primary objective of this work is to give the reader an understanding of stress wave behaviour while taking into account the dynamic constitutive equations of elastic-plastic solids. The author has combined amaterials characteristics approach with a singularity surface approach in this work, which readers will find to be a novel and unique route to solving their problems. Audience: engineers and researchers studying impact engineering, non-destructive testing and evaluation, earthquake engineering, and other areas related to stress waves.

History of shock waves, explosions and impact
A Chronological and Biographical Reference

Author: Krehl Peter O.K.
Editor: Springer 2007
Link: http://www.springer.com

Description: This unique and encyclopedic reference work charts the evolution of the physics of shock waves and detonations from the earliest investigations into percussion right up to the most recent groundbreaking research in the field. The history of this long and complex process is first reviewed in a general survey that encompasses everything from the earliest observations and interpretations of puzzling high-rate dynamic phenomena associated with natural and man-made explosions to a discussion of the merits of modern numerical computer simulations.The subject is then treated in more detail and in chronological order in the central section of the book, while also being richly illustrated in form of a picture gallery. The bibliographic index provides 122 short biographies of eminent researchers who have contributed to the field. Further references for biographical sources are given, and both name and subject indices (with over 4400 and 2500 entries, respectively) are provided.

Advancements in energetic materials and chemical propulsion

Author: Kenneth K. Kuo and Juan de Dios Rivera


Editor: Begell House Inc.


Link: www.begellhouse.com

Description : Significant advances have been made recently in the areas of synthesis, ignition, combustion, and mechanical characterization of energetic materials. Some of these new energetic materials contain nano-sized ingredients, which exhibit specific advantages for military and commercial applications in the chemical propulsion field. The advancements were achieved through experimental, theoretical, and computational efforts. In order to promote technical communication and to encourage further advancement in this important area, the International Advisory Committee for the Foundation of International Symposium on Special Topics in Chemical Propulsion decided to conduct the Sixth International Symposium ISICP): Advancements in Energetic Materials and Chemical Propulsion. The materials are presented within the pages of this book and also on CD.
