About this book

This monograph presents in detail the novel "wave" approach to finite element modeling of transient processes in solids. Strong discontinuities of stress, deformation, and velocity wave fronts as well as a finite magnitude of wave propagation speed over elements are considered. These phenomena, such as explosions, shocks, and seismic waves, involve problems with a time scale near the wave propagation time. Software packages for 1D and 2D problems yield significantly better results than classical FEA, so some FORTRAN programs with the necessary comments are given in the appendix. The book is written for researchers, lecturers, and advanced students interested in problems of numerical modeling of non-stationary dynamic processes in deformable bodies and continua, and also for engineers and researchers involved designing machines and structures, in which shock, vibro-impact, and other unsteady dynamics and waves processes play a significant role.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is devoted to a new approach to the description of complex mechanical systems. … among the actual nonclassical methods, the wave finite element method (WFEM) is of high interest. The author … provides a first exposition of WFEM … . The book is written very clearly, the graphs are excellent, and the reader can grasp the main facts from WFEM. The references are up-to-date … . The book can serve as a reference text book for the students and researchers in mechanics." (Dumitru Stanomir, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1063, 2005)

"I can say that the book contains a valuable collection of 1-D and some 2-D solutions for wave propagation in solids, and it made a valuable contribution towards a new general-purpose transient wave approach for solids. … the book is truly recommended for everybody involved in problems that include explosions, shocks, seismic waves, and structures with suddenly varying properties at a time-scale close to the time a wave takes to propagate over the structure." (Technische Mechanik, Vol. 26 (2), 2006)
