Introduction to Continuum Mechanics

  • 5th Edition

  • English
Lai et al’s Introduction to Continuum Mechanics is the leading textbook in continuum mechanics courses, having introduced senior-level undergraduate and graduate engineering students to the basic principles of continuum mechanics and their applications to real engineering problems for 50 years. The 5th edition has been re-focused on its long-time core market: one-semester graduate and senior undergraduate courses in continuum mechanics. It has been separated into two parts – elementary (linear) mechanics content aimed at one-semester coverage, and more advanced (non-linear mechanics) coverage. In addition the elasticity chapter has been replaced with a new chapter introducing various modes of material behavior. Instructors can rest assured that the new edition nevertheless uses the same approach as that in the earlier editions - that one can cover advanced topics in an elementary way that go from simple to complex, using a wealth of illustrative examples and problems. It is, and will remain, one of the most accessible textbooks on this challenging engineering subject.

Nanoscale Assembly and Fabrication by Electrokinetics

  • 1st Edition
  • January 1, 2030
  • Wen Jung Li
  • English
The ability to move, manipulate and precisely assemble nanoscale materials is key to further advances in nanotechnology, especially nanoscale manufacturing, fabrication of sensors, electronics components etc. Electrokinetics is a key technique for achieving these ends, an is already widely used in MEMS and nanotechnology applications. This book provides a thorough overview of electrokinetics, focusing on both theoretical and experimental aspects of this important technique. Wen Li shows how to use electric field concepts to assemble nanoscale systems (i.e. systems on the scale of molecules). The use of field forces, as in electrokinetics, offers the level of precision required to manipulate and assemble large arrays of similar structures at the nano-scale. Electrokinetics is also put into a broader context by the author's wider examination of nanoscale systems, including an explanation of how competing forces and interactions operate at the molecular scale. Wen Li's book will enable readers to develop the ability to systematically design nano-sensing platforms and nano-manufacturing systems in a range of applications for areas including healthcare, precision engineering, lubrication, cell manipulation and the analysis of biological samples.

  • English
Environmental Radioactivity is the most comprehensive compilation of information on the subject of radioactive contamination of the environment---from natural and manmade sources---covering incidents, accidents, industrial and military practices anywhere in the world. The book is essential reading for physical scientists studying the current and lasting effects of radiation. The book includes not only a full discussion and description of radioactivity in the environment, giving information about the sources (natural, industrial, military including accidents), quantitative descriptions of the contamination (spatial, temporal, chemical and physical forms), but also the dose impact (dose to members of the public or occupations) and health impact. In addition, discussion is provided on how and where radionuclides moves in the environment, the fundamental principles to assess those movements, limiting regulations on contamination, and clean up efforts. As such it is an indispensable and authoritative source of information for nuclear, regulatory, environmental, and health workers. This up-to-date new edition is, and will continue to be, a one-of-kind text, being both technical and readable, and is the definitive starting place for students, academicians, industrial researchers, or law and policy makers interested in the ``what, where, why or how'' of environmental radioactivity.

Encyclopedia of Nuclear Physics

  • 1st Edition

  • English
There have been many foundational advances in nuclear physics over the past few decades that are not widely known in the physics community. Review articles describing these advances are too advanced or detailed to be easily accessible to those without specialized knowledge. Encyclopedia of Nuclear Physics will fill this void and provide a point of entry to the literature for undergraduate and graduate students and early career researchers across all areas of physics. It will be particularly valuable to those engaging in interdisciplinary research at the intersections of nuclear physics, particle physics, condensed matter physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. The scope of nuclear physics has grown rapidly, and its utility in astrophysics, cosmology, and particle physics is now widely recognized. However, finding accessible descriptions of these developments is daunting because the sources are few and widely dispersed. A reference work with a brief and accessible description of a comprehensive list of topics is needed to help undergraduate and graduate students and researchers navigate the literature. This encyclopedia will contain approximately 200 chapters that will provide succinct introductory descriptions of experimental and theoretical results and techniques in nuclear physics and will identify reliable sources for further reading. With a clear and logical template throughout, content will be divided into the following five sections, each of which contain chapters written by leading scientists who have pursued theoretical tools and methods and/or gathered and evaluated the most important data published within the field: Section 1 - Nuclear structure and reactions. Chapters include: nuclear forces, properties of nuclei, the emergence of complexity and collective quantum behavior, nuclear reactions, nuclear pairing, shell structure and its evolution with neutron and proton excess, experimental techniques, ab intio nuclear theory, effective field theory, mean-field theory, and nuclear models. Section 2 - Nuclear and Neutrino Astrophysics. Chapters include: nuclear reaction in stars, nucleosynthesis, explosive nuclear burning, nuclear reactions in compact objects, dense nuclear and neutron matter, dense matter equation of state and neutron star structure, neutrino cooling and neutrino reactions in stars, supernovae, and neutron star mergers. Section 3 - Fundamental Symmetries and Nuclear Probes of High Energy Physics. Chapters include: weak interactions on hadrons and nuclei, neutrino properties, double-beta decay, nuclear physics of dark matter cross-sections, neutron dipole moment, anapole moment, searches for new physics. Section 4 - QCD under extreme conditions and QCD phase diagram. Chapters include: heavy-ion collisions at low, intermediate, and high energy, the phase diagram of QCD, phases of QCD, Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP), shear viscosity and related transport properties of the QGP, lattice QCD and QCD thermodynamics, hydrodynamics and transport phenomena in heavy ion collisions, energy loss, chiral magnetic effect and related manifestations of quantum anomalies. Section 5 - High energy QCD and hadron structure. Chapters include: perturbative QCD, deep-inelastic scattering, scattering processes at high-energy, light-cone perturbation theory, parton distribution functions, gluons, and color glass condensate, quark model, exotic hadrons, lattice QCD calculations of hadrons. Advanced interactive features such as videos and 3D viewers are included, significantly increasing the practicality and learning outcomes for the modern-day reader for whom online usage is preferred. The result is the ideal one-stop foundational resource to the complex field of nuclear physics and an essential tool for physicists to refer to time and again.
