Description

This volume addresses practical and concrete resolution methods for certain inverse problems related to material properties and behavior: the inverse Lagrange problem, determination of elastic constants of a monoclinic crystal, the behavior of initially deformed metallic layered structures, identification problems in viscoelasticity and sonoelasticity theories, the behavior of plates and structures with adhesive bonds, and a non-local identification problem. It is not simply a translation of its predecessor which appeared with the Publishing House of the Romanian Academy in 2003 ("Probleme inverse in mecanica", Editura Academiei, Bucharest, Romania). Improvements outline the way in which the inverse theory is applied to solve some engineering problems. This new edition contains many improvements concerning the presentation, as well as new topics using an enlarged and updated bibliography. In addition to the large area of domains in physics and mechanics covered by this volume, a list of completely solved problems with great practical interest for engineering is also presented, while most of the books about inverse problems present only the theory or only partial resolutions. The work requires as preliminaries only the mathematical knowledge acquired by a student in a technical university.
