By Danilo Capecchi,Giuseppe Ruta

This e-book examines the theoretical foundations underpinning the sphere of energy of materials/theory of elasticity, starting from the origins of the trendy concept of elasticity. whereas the focal point is at the advances made inside of Italy through the 19th century, those achievements are framed in the total eu context. The important contributions of Italian mathematicians, mathematical physicists and engineers in recognize of the speculation of elasticity, continuum mechanics, structural mechanics, the main of least paintings and graphical equipment in engineering are rigorously defined and mentioned. The e-book represents a piece of old examine that essentially contains unique contributions and summaries of labor released in journals. it truly is directed at these graduates in engineering, but additionally in structure, who desire to in achieving a extra international and important view of the self-discipline and also will be useful for all students of the historical past of mechanics.

Thermodynamik: Grundlagen und technische Anwendungen Band 1: Einstoffsysteme (Springer-Lehrbuch) (German Edition)

Dieses Grundlagenwerk der Thermodynamik erscheint schon nach kurzer Zeit in der 17. Auflage. Es wurden lediglich kleinere Korrekturen durchgeführt, da die sixteen. Auflage eine umfassende Neubearbeitung beinhaltete. Die Theorie der Thermodynamik wird systematisch entwickelt, wobei die zentrale Bedeutung der Bilanzierungen von Masse, Energie und Entropie in besonderer Weise herausgestellt wird.
