Read e-book online Continuum Mechanics Through the Eighteenth and Nineteenth PDF

By Gérard A. Maugin

Conceived as a sequence of roughly self sustaining essays, the current publication significantly exposes the preliminary advancements of continuum thermo-mechanics in a submit Newtonian interval extending from the artistic works of the Bernoullis to the 1st international conflict, i.e., approximately in the course of first the “Age of cause” and subsequent the “Birth of the trendy world”. The emphasis is rightly put on the unique contributions from the “Continental” scientists (the Bernoulli kinfolk, Euler, d’Alembert, Lagrange, Cauchy, Piola, Duhamel, Neumann, Clebsch, Kirchhoff, Helmholtz, Saint-Venant, Boussinesq, the Cosserat brothers, Caratheodory) in pageant with their British friends (Green, Kelvin, Stokes, Maxwell, Rayleigh, Love,..). It underlines the most breakthroughs in addition to the secondary ones. It highlights the function of scientists who left crucial prints during this heritage of clinical rules. The booklet indicates how the ambitious advancements that blossomed within the 20th century (and perused in a prior booklet of the writer within the related Springer sequence: “Continuum Mechanics in the course of the 20th Century”, Springer 2013) discovered wealthy compost within the positive foundational achievements of the eighteenth and 19th centuries. The pre-WWI state of affairs is easily summarized via a radical research of treatises (Appell, Hellinger) released at the moment. English translations via the writer of most crucial texts in French or German are given to the advantage of the readers.
