By G Barbero,L R Evangelista

This e-book was once written to allow physicists and engineers to profit, inside a unmarried direction, a few subject matters in variational calculus, thought of elasticity, molecular types, and floor houses of nematic fabrics. It prepares graduate scholars for reports that require an easy wisdom within the physics of nematic liquid crystals.

With this attention in brain, the authors have formulated the issues about the continuum idea of liquid crystals right into a specific shape. In figuring out the suggestions, they've got analyzed, systematically and of course, the ideas and strategies of variational calculus. distinctive awareness is devoted to the research of well-posed and ill-posed variational difficulties. The presence of sub-surface discontinuity within the nematic orientation is analyzed utilizing diversified innovations. an entire bankruptcy is dedicated to this point of the idea of elasticity of nematic media.


  • Variational Calculus
  • Theory of Elasticity I: Fundamentals
  • Theory of Elasticity II: Applications
  • Molecular Models
  • Subsurface Deformations in Nematics

Readership: scholars in physics and electronics engineering; physicists and engineers in nematic liquid crystals.

Strength and Toughness of Materials

Because the shift from the steel Age progresses, fabrics engineers and fabrics scientists search new analytical and layout how to create more advantageous and extra trustworthy fabrics. in keeping with huge study and developmental paintings performed on the author’s multi-disciplinary fabric laboratory, this graduate-level reference addresses the connection among fracture mechanisms (macroscale) and the microscopic, with the aim of explaining macroscopic fracture habit in keeping with a microscopic fracture mechanism.

Fundamentals of Strength: Principles, Experiment, and Applications of an Internal State Variable Constitutive Formulation

Bargains information, examples, and purposes helping using the mechanical threshold tension (MTS) version Written via Paul S. Follansbee, a global authority within the box, this ebook explores the underlying concept, mechanistic foundation, and implementation of the mechanical threshold tension (MTS) version.

Capabilities and Governance of Nanotechnology in the Developing World: Insights from India

The relevant for in charge innovation within the nanotechnology area has encouraged and provoked diversified perspectives on its trajectory, strength implications in addition to applicable pathways for its improvement throughout a spectrum of stakeholders. those debates think higher importance within the context of constructing countries considering that harnessing the inherent strength of this transformational expertise presumes the institution of simultaneous services to state of the art technological innovation in addition to threat governance, legislation and public engagement in an atmosphere challenged by way of restricted assets, susceptible innovation platforms and insufficient talents for danger administration.

Multifunctional Systems for Combined Delivery, Biosensing and Diagnostics

Multifunctional structures for mixed supply, Biosensing, and Diagnostics explores how multifunctional nanocarriers are getting used in mixed supply and diagnostics in modern drugs. specific consciousness is given to efforts to i) lessen the unwanted side effects of healing brokers, ii) bring up the pharmacological impression, and iii) increase aqueous solubility and chemical balance of other healing brokers.
