Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100 by Michio kaku pdf free download.

Space elevators. Internet-enabled contact lenses. Cars that fly by floating on magnetic fields. This is the stuff of science fiction—it’s also daily life in the year 2100.

Renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku details the developments in computer technology, artificial intelligence, medicine, space travel, and more, that are poised to happen over the next hundred years. He also considers how these inventions will affect the world economy, addressing the key questions: Who will have jobs? Which nations will prosper? Kaku interviews three hundred of the world’s top scientists—working in their labs on astonishing prototypes. He also takes into account the rigorous scientific principles that regulate how quickly, how safely, and how far technologies can advance. InPhysics of the Future, Kaku forecasts a century of earthshaking advances in technology that could make even the last centuries’ leaps and bounds seem insignificant.

Review

“Fascinating. . . . [A] wide-ranging tour of what to expect from technological progress over the next century or so.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A whirlwind tour of technological possibility.” —New Scientist

“Mak[es] the exponential character of technological progress stick in the reader’s head, so that they come to look at the world differently.” —The Sunday Telegraph (London)

“[Kaku] has the rare ability to take complicated scientific theories and turn them into readable tales about what our lives will be like in the future. . . . Fascinating. And just a little bit spooky.” —USA Today

Introduction to Continuum Mechanics by W Michael Lai; David Rubin; Erhard Krempl pdf free download.

Continuum Mechanics is a branch of physical mechanics that describes the macroscopic mechanical behavior of solid or fluid materials considered to be continuously distributed. It is fundamental to the fields of civil, mechanical, chemical and bioengineering. This time-tested text has been used for over 35 years to introduce junior and senior-level undergraduate engineering students, as well as graduate students, to the basic principles of continuum mechanics and their applications to real engineering problems. The text begins with a detailed presentation of the coordinate invariant quantity, the tensor, introduced as a linear transformation. This is then followed by the formulation of the kinematics of deformation, large as well as very small, the description of stresses and the basic laws of continuum mechanics. As applications of these laws, the behaviors of certain material idealizations (models) including the elastic, viscous and viscoelastic materials, are presented.

This new edition offers expanded coverage of the subject matter both in terms of details and contents, providing greater flexibility for either a one or two-semester course in either continuum mechanics or elasticity. Although this current edition has expanded the coverage of the subject matter, it 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.

  • Significantly expanded coverage of elasticity in Chapter 5, including solutions of some 3-D problems based on the fundamental potential functions approach.
  • New section at the end of Chapter 4 devoted to the integral formulation of the field equations
  • Seven new appendices appear at the end of the relevant chapters to help make each chapter more self-contained
  • Expanded and improved problem sets providing both intellectual challenges and engineering applications

Wave Motion in Elastic Solids by Karl F. Graff pdf free download

Description:

Wave Motion in Elastic Solids by Karl F. Graff pdf free download.

This highly useful textbook presents comprehensive intermediate-level coverage of nearly all major topics of elastic wave propagation in solids. The subjects range from the elementary theory of waves and vibrations in strings to the three-dimensional theory of waves in thick plates. The book is designed not only for a wide audience of engineering students, but also as a general reference for workers in vibrations and acoustics.
Chapters 1–4 cover wave motion in the simple structural shapes, namely strings, longitudinal rod motion, beams and membranes, plates and (cylindrical) shells. Chapters 5–8 deal with wave propagation as governed by the three-dimensional equations of elasticity and cover waves in infinite media, waves in half-space, scattering and diffraction, and waves in thick rods, plates, and shells.
To make the book as self-contained as possible, three appendices offer introductory material on elasticity equations, integral transforms and experimental methods in stress waves. In addition, the author has presented fairly complete development of a number of topics in the mechanics and mathematics of the subject, such as simple transform solutions, orthogonality conditions, approximate theories of plates and asymptotic methods.
Throughout, emphasis has been placed on showing results, drawn from both theoretical and experimental studies, as well as theoretical development of the subject. Moreover, there are over 100 problems distributed throughout the text to help students grasp the material. The result is an excellent resource for both undergraduate and graduate courses and an authoritative reference and review for research workers and professionals.

It covers the fundamentals of wave propagation in solids and has great citations.

Peterson's Stress Concentration Factors by Walter D. Pilkey, Deborah F. Pilkey pdf free download

Description:

Peterson’s Stress Concentration Factors by Walter D. Pilkey, Deborah F. Pilkey pdf free download.

Peterson’s Stress Concentration Factors establishes and maintains a system of data classification for all of the applications of stress and strain analysis and expedites their synthesis into CAD applications. Substantially revised and completely updated, this book presents stress concentration factors both graphically and with formulas. It also employs computer-generated art in its portrayal of the various relationships between the stress factors affecting machines or structures. These charts provide a visual representation of the machine or structure under consideration as well as graphs of the various stress concentration factors at work. They can be easily accessed via an illustrated table of contents that permits identification based on the geometry and loading of the location of a factor.

For the new third edition, new material will be added covering finite element analyses of stress concentrations, as well as effective computational design. The book explains how to optimize shape to circumvent stress concentration problems and how to achieve a well-balanced design of structures and machines that will result in reduced costs, lighter products, and improved performance.

From the Publisher

A complete revision of the definitive work on the subject of stress concentration. This new edition updates all of the graphics with computer-generated art which incorporates both a visual representation of the product/structure under consideration along with the graph of the stress concentration factors. Contains extensive material on how to perform computer analyses for stress concentrations and how to design to reduce them. A “quick-finder” feature has been provided for locating frequently used charts.

This is an excellent book. I found the book to be extremely informative and thoghtfully written. I recommend this book for anyone that is interested in applications of stress and strain analysis.

Description:

INTRODUCTION TO THE MATHEMATICAL THEORY OF VIBRATIONS OF ELASTIC PLATES by R. D. Mindlin, Jiashi Yang pdf free download.

This book by the late R D Mindlin is destined to become a classic introduction to the mathematical aspects of two-dimensional theories of elastic plates. It systematically derives the two-dimensional theories of anisotropic elastic plates from the variational formulation of the three-dimensional theory of elasticity by power series expansions. The uniqueness of two-dimensional problems is also examined from the variational viewpoint. The accuracy of the two-dimensional equations is judged by comparing the dispersion relations of the waves that the two-dimensional theories can describe with prediction from the three-dimensional theory. Discussing mainly high-frequency dynamic problems, it is also useful in traditional applications in structural engineering as well as provides the theoretical foundation for acoustic wave devices.

Review

From the reviews of the third edition:

“Written in a style that includes both technical detail and humor, Bill Steen’s book on laser material processing is the standard by which others are judged. It is the text in my graduate-level course on the subject.” C.E. Albright, The Ohio State University “I have used two previous editions for my class. The third edition has included some of the more recent applications. It is easy to read and explanations are lucid. I expect it will receive wide acceptance in class rooms world wide.” J. Mazumder, University of Michigan “It is the great merit of this book to offer a compact survey on laser material processing. A useful and fascinating book, pleasant to read with many useful figures and examples of industrial applications. It is a textbook for advanced students in this field, but also a reference book for engineers.” H. Weber, Technische Universität Berlin “A clear and instructive textbook for students who will become the next generation of laser specialists, and it is a good source of updated knowledge for practicing engineers and technicians in optoelectronics, laser processing, materials treatment, and advanced manufacturing. The book also will be helpful as a reference source. The chapters are largely independent of one another, and a reader interested in only one topic may be satisfied by reading all of parts of the relevant chapter without going to other chapters. Well written, with many useful diagrams and examples of industrial applications, Steen’s book is a good guide in the field..”The Industrial Physicist

“Material processing is one of the most important applications of lasers. … Laser Material Processing gives a compact survey and can be used as university or industrial course material … . The book will guide the reader smoothly from the basics of laser physics to the detailed treatment of all major material processing techniques for which lasers are essential. … I can recommend this book as an authoritative source of information on the rapidly expanding use of industrial lasers in material processing.” (Roland Baur, Optik, Vol. 117, 2006)
