An introduction to the mathematical theory of vibrations of by R. D. Mindlin, Jiashi Yang

By R. D. Mindlin, Jiashi Yang

This ebook by means of the past due R D Mindlin is destined to develop into a vintage creation to the mathematical features of two-dimensional theories of elastic plates. It systematically derives the two-dimensional theories of anisotropic elastic plates from the variational formula of the 3-dimensional conception of elasticity by means of strength sequence expansions. the distinctiveness of two-dimensional difficulties is additionally tested from the variational standpoint. The accuracy of the two-dimensional equations is judged by way of evaluating the dispersion relatives of the waves that the two-dimensional theories can describe with prediction from the three-d concept. Discussing typically high-frequency dynamic difficulties, it's also beneficial in conventional functions in structural engineering in addition to offers the theoretical starting place for acoustic wave units.
