Based on practical problems in mechanical engineering, the author develops in this book the fundamental concepts of non-smooth thermomechanics and introduces the necessary background material needed to deal with mechanics involving discontinuities and non-smooth constraints. From this point, powerful methods for the applied mathematician and the mechanical engineer are derived, and applied to numerous cases including collisions of deformable and non-deformable solids, shape memory alloys, damage of materials, soil freezing, supercooling and solid--liquid phase changes, to name but a few. This book will be of great value to both the researcher and practitioner, but it can also be used as an advanced text for students in civil and mechanical engineering.

Industry Reviews

"This book offers a fresh point of view and a new unifying approach to several different phenomena involving complex materials in continuum mechanics." (Mathematical Reviews 2003g)

"Providing an introduction to non-smooth thermodynamics and its application to a number of practical problems in mechanics, civil and mechanical engineering, this book appeals to both students (at a graduate level) and researchers." (Zentralblatt MATH, 990/15, 2002)
