"Microstructure and Phase Transitions"
Editors: Richard James, Mitchell Luskin, and Jerry L. Ericksen - 1993
Description: This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications is based on the proceedings of a workshop that was an integral part of the 1990-91 IMA program on "Phase Transitions and Free Boundaries."
"Shock Induced Transitions and Phase Structures in General Media"
Editors: J.E. Dunn, Roger L. Fosdick, and Marshall Slemrod - 1993
Description: This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications is based on the proceedings of a workshop that was an integral part of the 1990-91 IMA program on "Phase Transitions and Free Boundaries." The workshop focused on the thermodynamics and mechanics of dynamic phase transitions that are mainly inertially driven and brought together physicists, metallurgists, mathematicians, engineers, and molecular dynamicists with interest in these problems.
"Automation, Control and Complexity"
Editors: Tariq Samad and John Weyrauch - 2000
Description: This book offers a fresh perspective on how to approach dealing with complexities when working with engineering systems. The book is arranged around four main themes: People and Automation, Sensing and Control Software and Complex Systems and Complexity and Managment and Networks.
"The Rational Spirit in Modern Continuum Mechanics"
Editors: Chi-Sing Man and Roger L. Fosdick - 2004
Description: This book contains a collection of 42 essays and papers that are dedicated to the memory of Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III (1919 - 2000), who was the main architect for the renaissance of rational continuum mechanics since the middle of the 20th century. The work includes essays of personal reminiscences and research papers at the forefront of research in rational continuum mechanics and its application to material science and structural mechanics.
"GNSS Applications and Methods"
Editors: Demoz Gebre-Egziabher and Scott Gleason - 2009

"Methods and Tastes in Modern Continuum Mechanics"
Editors: Roger L. Fosdick , Eliot Fried, and Daniel Tortorelli - 2011
Description: This book, dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Carlson (1938-2010), presents unique research investigations which give breadth and depth to the field of continuum mechanics and provides a vision for future advancements. The work contains one essay on the life of Carlson, and 42 research papers related to a plethora of physical phenomena on the foundations and applications of modern continuum mechanics.
"Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics: From Fundamental Concepts to Governing Equations"
Description: This book provides a self-contained, in-depth presentation of the topics of continuum mechanics and thermodynamics within a linear materials modeling context. It gives the reader a fresh perspective on these important subjects, exploring their fundamentals and connecting them with micro- and nanoscopic theories. The book is ideal for graduate students as well as researchers in physics, material science, chemistry, and engineering. For more information see: http://www.modelingmaterials.org/
"Statistical Mechanics, Molecular Modeling, and the Notion of Stress"
Editors: Roger L. Fosdick and Eliot Fried - 2014
Description: This book examines and translates into English a paper written by Walter Noll, which gives new interpretations and provides a firm setting for ideas advanced by Irving and Kirkwood that directly relate to the basic principles of continuum mechanics. The translation exposes fundamental ideas of statistical mechanics, which are vital in modeling small scale behavior and its link to macroscopic observations. The translation is accompanied by four relevant research papers.
"The Mechanics of Ribbons and Mobius Bands"
Editors: Roger L. Fosdick and Eliot Fried - 2015
Description: This book contains English translations of four seminal papers on the mechanics of thin, flexible ribbons and mobius bands. The work includes 12 related research papers which expose modern developments in this field.
"Nonequilibrium Gas Dynamics and Molecular Simulation"
Editors: Lain D. Boyd and Thomas E. Schwartzentruber - 2017
Description: Starting from the behavior of individual atoms and molecules, including their quantum energy states, Boyd and Schwartzentruber develop the relationships to classical thermodynamics and gas dynamics using theory and simulation. This book is aimed at graduate students, engineers, and scientists involved in the study of nonequilibrium gas dynamics. The book also describes the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) particle method and its application to hypersonic flows.
Author: Theodore A. Wilson - 2016
Description: This book is a thorough examination of pulmonary mechanics, the respiratory pump, and plow in respiratory mechanics. It serves as a guide for those entering the field and gives insights into notable research throughout the history of the field by looking at scientific literature from 1960 to 2010.
