Product description


From the reviews of the first edition:

"The aim of this important book is the study of problems in contact mechanics ... . The work is intended for a wide audience: this would include specialists in contact processes in the structural and mechanical systems … as well as those with a background in the mathematical sciences who seek a self-contained account of mathematical theory of contact mechanics. The text is suitable for graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics, computational mathematics, and computational mechanics." (J. Lovíšek, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1069, 2005)

From the Back Cover

The mathematical theory of contact mechanics is a growing field in engineering and scientific computing. This book is intended as a unified and readily accessible source for mathematicians, applied mathematicians, mechanicians, engineers and scientists, as well as advanced students. The first part describes models of the processes involved like friction, heat generation and thermal effects, wear, adhesion and damage. The second part presents many mathematical models of practical interest and demonstrates the close interaction and cross-fertilization between contact mechanics and the theory of variational inequalities. The last part reviews further results, gives many references to current research and discusses open problems and future developments. The book can be read by mechanical engineers interested in applications. In addition, some theorems and their proofs are given as examples for the mathematical tools used in the models.
