Download PDF by Gérard A. Maugin: Continuum Mechanics Through the Eighteenth and Nineteenth

By Gérard A. Maugin

Conceived as a chain of kind of independent essays, the current ebook seriously exposes the preliminary advancements of continuum thermo-mechanics in a publish Newtonian interval extending from the inventive works of the Bernoullis to the 1st global warfare, i.e., approximately in the course of first the “Age of cause” and subsequent the “Birth of the fashionable world”. The emphasis is rightly put on the unique contributions from the “Continental” scientists (the Bernoulli kin, Euler, d’Alembert, Lagrange, Cauchy, Piola, Duhamel, Neumann, Clebsch, Kirchhoff, Helmholtz, Saint-Venant, Boussinesq, the Cosserat brothers, Caratheodory) in festival 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 background of clinical rules. The publication exhibits how the bold advancements that blossomed within the 20th century (and perused in a prior booklet of the writer within the related Springer sequence: “Continuum Mechanics during the 20th Century”, Springer 2013) stumbled on wealthy compost within the optimistic foundational achievements of the eighteenth and 19th centuries. The pre-WWI scenario is easily summarized through an intensive research of treatises (Appell, Hellinger) released at the moment. English translations through the writer of most important texts in French or German are given to the good thing about the readers.
