Overview

This volume honors the accomplishments of Ronald S. Rivlin, whose pioneering theoretical and experimental research in finite elasticity is a landmark. Contributions to this important reference reflect the depth and breadth of Rivlin's research interest and his influence on continuum mechanics. Topics include nonlinear elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, thermodynamics, non-Newtonian flow, liquid crystals, two-phase structures, membranes, mechanics of ice, electroelastic and magnetoelastic waves, fracture, and stability.
