Daniel (theoretical and applied mechanics, Center for Intelligent Processing of Composites, Northwestern University) and Ishai (mechanical engineering, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology) have added a more complete treatment of fundamental theory, more emphasis on widely-used materials, and a discussion of failure theories for this second edition of a text for advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate courses on composite materials in materials science and mechanical engineering.
The author, who is internationally known for his contributions to theoretical and applied mechanics, presents a novel solution method for wave fields by reciprocity of the actual field with a so-called virtual wave, shedding new light on the use of reciprocity relations for dynamic fields in an elastic body.
The process was initially developed at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Siberian Division of the Russian Academy of Science in Novosibirsk in the mid-1980s.
