## Nonlinear finite elements/Nonlinearities in solid mechanics

Nonlinearities are classified into three major types: Geometric nonlinearities. Material nonlinearities. **Contact** nonlinearities. Geometric nonlinearities [ edit ] Geometric nonlinearities involve nonlinearities in kinematic quantities such as the strain-displacement relations in solids

## Advanced mechanics of solid

The term "advanced **mechanics** of solid" is used widely to denote the course content provided in engineering curricula (especially in mechanical engineering ) after the introductory solid **mechanics** or **mechanics** of solid. Here, as a starting only analysis of stress only is treated, and further

## Motion - mechanics

Classical **mechanics** describes the motion of macroscopic objects, from projectiles to parts of machinery, as well as astronomical objects, such as spacecraft, planets, stars, and galaxies. Besides this, many specializations within the subject deal with gases, liquids, solids, and other specific

## Statistical mechanics and thermodynamics

to be in thermal equilibrium if its macrostate is time independent. A major part of statistical **mechanics** is the study of systems in or very close to thermal equilibrium. It follows from the fundamental postulate that lacking any information about a system, the most likely macrostate is that

## Advanced Classical Mechanics/Dissipative Forces

kinetic friction is supposed to be proportional to the normal force and independent of area of **contact** or speed. It is simply a property of the materials in **contact** . Specifically, we have | F → | = μ | F n o r m a l | {\displaystyle \left|{\vec {F}

## Materials Science and Engineering/List of Topics/Quantum Mechanics/Postulates of Quantum Mechanics

The mathematical formulation of quantum **mechanics** is the body of mathematical formalisms which permits a rigorous description of quantum **mechanics** . It is distinguished from mathematical formalisms for theories developed prior to the early 1900s by the use of abstract mathematical structures

## Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers/Integral Analysis of Fluid Flow

Eulerian approach and differential vs integral approach. System versus Control volume [ edit ] In **mechanics** , system is a collection of matter of fixed identity (always the same atoms or fluid particles) which may move, flow and interact with its surroundings. Hence, the mass is constant
