About this book

This is the second volume of three books devoted to Mechanics. In this book, dynamical and advanced mechanics problems are stated, illustrated, and discussed, including a few novel concepts in comparison to standard text books and monographs. Apart from being addressed to a wide spectrum of graduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, and teachers from the fields of mechanical and civil engineering, this volume is also intended to be used as a self-contained material for applied mathematicians and physical scientists and researchers.

About the authors

Jan Awrejcewicz is the 2011 winner of the Humboldt Prize. This award is granted from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany and is based on a reasearcher's entire achievements to date, whose fundamental discoveries, new theories or insights have had significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future. Prof. Awrejcewicz is also the main author of “Nonsmooth Dynamics of Contacting Thermoelastic Bodies”, © 2009, Springer (AMMA v. 16), 978-0-387-09562-0. He is also the sole editor of “Modeling, Simulation and Control of Nonlinear Engineering Dynamical Systems”, © 2009 Springer, 978-1-4020-8777-6.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book contains formulations, illustrations and discussions of dynamical and advanced mechanical problems. It is addressed to graduate and postgraduate students, and to researchers from mechanical and civil engineering and mechatronics. … the book by Awrejcewicz is a valuable addition to the literature on the subject, and I highly recommend it for the courses on advanced dynamics for engineering students.” (Teodor Atanackovic, zbMATH, Vol. 1270, 2013)
