Overview

The pioneering and wide-ranging research of A. E. Green—one of the outstanding British researchers in theoretical and applied mechanics—is the subject of this important new volume. Featuring sixteen up-to-date research papers written by his eminent colleagues and friends, the book covers a variety of topics from thermodynamics to problems associated with crystals; linear, nonlinear and fibre-reinforced elastic materials; and viscoplastic and granular materials. Perfect for students and researchers alike, Nonlinear Elasticity and Theoretical Mechanics is a superb tribute to the work of one of England's great scientists.
