This quantity offers contemporary advancements within the idea of defects and the mechanics of fabric forces. lots of the contributions have been offered on the foreign Symposium on disorder and fabric Forces (ISDMM2007), held in Aussois, France, March 25-29, 2007. The mechanics of fabric forces, originated within the works of Eshelby, supply a rational framework for the outline of using forces on evolving inhomogeneities and structural alterations in continua. the overall eshelbian mechanics formula comes up with a unifying remedy of alternative phenomena like fracture and harm evolution, section transitions, plasticity and dislocation movement, and so on. The articles difficulty either theoretical and computational facets of the cloth mechanics of defects. one of the addressed subject matters are fracture and harm, electromagnetoelasticity, plasticity, allotted dislocations, thermodynamics, poroelasticity, generalized continua, structural optimization, conservation legislation and symmetries, multiscale ways, and numerical resolution concepts.

Example text

Given a material body, it may so happen that each and every point has a response given by the above equation. In that case we say that the body is materially uniform (according to Noll’s terminology (Noll 1967)). The second role that an archetype may play, whether or not the body is materially uniform, is nothing but the temporal counterpart of the spatial notion of uniformity just introduced. What we mean by this is that, although a material point, as time goes on, may retain the “chemical identity” (as it were) provided by the archetype, it may so happen that the implant P(X) evolves in time, thus becoming: P = P(X, t).

In principle, this term could have been absorbed into rρ , with the understanding that it may eventually be specified constitutively, rather than just externally. of non-compliant entropy, which should be specified constitutively. 2 The Clausius-Duhem inequality 3 Material evolution What does the Second Law of Thermodynamics have to say when one has come to terms with the assumption that, at least for modelling purposes, matter is continuous? A possible answer to this question is the one embodied in the Clausius-Duhem inequality.

We simply do not know how this fundamental law of nature can be rendered compatible with such a bold, albeit manifestly useful, assumption. To further complicate matters, there is the issue of the use of internal state variables (Coleman and Gurtin 1967), which can be regarded as implicated in any model of material evolution. Is the formulation of the Second Law for a continuous medium to be modified, perhaps augmented, in the presence of internal variables? Or must we recalcitrantly cling to the original form and live with the consequences?
