By Pierre-Antoine Bois, Agnés Kubicki (auth.), Gérard A. Maugin, Raymonde Drouot, François Sidoroff (eds.)

Contributed by way of world-renowned experts at the party of Paul Germain's eightieth birthday, this special publication displays the foundational works and the highbrow effect of this writer. It offers the area of contemporary thermomechanics with its remarkable wealth of functions to the behaviour of fabrics, even if strong or fluid. The thirty-one contributions stick with an easygoing autobiographical comic strip via Paul Germain, and spotlight the ability and richness of a methodological method of the phenomenology of many fabrics. This method combines harmoniously thermodynamics and continuum thought as a way to supply exploitable, thermodynamically admissible types of a big number of behaviours and phenomena, together with these of diffusion, thermoelasticity, viscoplasticity, rest, hysteresis, wetting, shape-memory results, development, section transitions, balance, fracture, shocks, machining of fabrics, microstructured solids, complicated fluids, and so on.
specially aimed toward graduate scholars, researchers, and engineers in mechanical engineering and fabrics technological know-how, this booklet additionally offers the state-of-the-art in an energetic box of study and opens new horizons in different medical fields, equivalent to utilized arithmetic and utilized physics, as a result of the highbrow pride and noteworthy potency supplied by means of the endorsed approach.

It is certain that it had a big influence on the orientation of many people working in mechanics, on scientists in universities and research establishments, on engineers and directors of companies and on the orientation of longterm programmes. A committee Haut Comité de Mécanique of twenty people (one President, one secretary, six scientists, six engineers and six directors of companies) was created in order to study together the many problems of the activity of mechanics in France and to make suggestions in order to improve the mutual relations between these different groups represented.

5th ed. ; Me Graw Hill, New York, 1968. Application of the theory of Cosserat media to the elasto-plastic behaviour of poly crystals. Maurizio Brocato*, Alain Ehrlacher†, Philippe Tamagny† Abstract Professor Germain has proposed in [Germain, 1973] a theory of Cosserat continua obtained through the principle of virtual power. We propose here an application of that theory to the elastoplastic behaviour of polycrystals. We put forward a model of continuum with microstructure representing a material body, the elements of which are single crystals.

Dissertation, ENPC, Paris. brun@bruyeres. fr Abstract: A general model of thermomechanical behaviour is introduced, based on Bridgman’s perception of the role of thermodynamic forces, Eckart’s finite anelastic deformation concept, Ziegler’s dissipation potential and a greatly simplifying assumption of ‘small elastic deformation’. An apparently new non-linear extension to the ‘thermorheologically simple’ viscoelastic model is obtained and a fairly comprehensive elastoviscoplastic model presented.
