About this Textbook

This book provides a concise introduction to soft matter modelling, together with an up-to-date review of the continuum mechanical description of soft and biological materials, from the basics to the latest scientific materials. It also includes multi-physics descriptions, such as chemo-, thermo-, and electro-mechanical coupling. The new edition includes a new chapter on fractures as well as numerous corrections, clarifications and new solutions. Based on a graduate course taught for the past few years at Technion, it presents original explanations for a number of standard materials, and features detailed examples to complement all topics discussed.

About the authors

Konstantin Volokh is an award-winning scientist with over 25 years’ experience in teaching mechanics. In 1994 he joined Technion—the Israel Institute of Technology—where he developed the unique course on Mechanics of Soft Materials. Professor Volokh works in the broad field of mechanics of soft materials including biological tissues with emphasis on modeling failure and fracture. He is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the new Springer journal Mechanics of Soft Materials.
