This quantity provides a suite of contributions on complicated techniques of continuum mechanics, which have been written to rejoice the sixtieth birthday of Prof. Holm Altenbach. The contributions are on issues concerning the theoretical foundations for the research of rods, shells and three-d solids, formula of constitutive types for complex fabrics, in addition to improvement of recent techniques to the modeling of wear and tear and fractures.

During this normal reference of the sphere, theoretical and experimental techniques to circulate, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. various methods are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st method is predicated at the classical equations of stream and shipping, referred to as 'continuum models'.
The Workshop on regulate Mechanics has been held on the collage of South ern California each year because 1988 below the management of overdue Professor Janislaw M. Skowronski. the first target of Professor Skowronski in organizing this sequence of labor retailers used to be to advertise using complex mechanics strategy up to speed conception with a different emphasis at the regulate of nonlinear mechanical structures topic to uncertainty.
The appliance of composite fabrics to engineering parts has spurred a ma jor attempt to research such fabrics and the constructions made of them. so much researchers workin~ in mechanics of composite constructions remember the fact that composite fabrics seasoned vide umque benefits but in addition current advanced and hard difficulties to researchers.

Maugin an influential encyclopaedic treatise on rational mechanics (starting in 1893 with many augmented editions) and practically became the godfather of all mechanicians in France in the period of interest. Koenigs, a student of Darboux, became professor of mechanics at the Sorbonne while publishing a successful treatise on kinematics (Lessons of 1895–1897, Koenigs 1895, see also Lovett 1900). Both Darboux and Koenigs left a strong print on the Cosserats’ work of 1896 as witnessed by the large number of citations to their books.
But the Cosserats have formulated the deformation theory essentially in the undeformed reference configuration (see preceding section). They thus want to reformulate Eqs. (4) and (5) in the appropriate framework, that is, per unit undeformed volume and unit undeformed area. They rightly think that the required manoeuvre must be analogous to what is done in hydrodynamics in passing from Euler to Lagrange equations. This is called a “pull back operation” in modern treatises, and this is in fact defined by the celebrated Piola transformation (Piola 1836), but the Cosserats refer only to Kirchhoff (1852) for this operation which they achieved astutely by associating to Eqs.
Definition 6 The material derivative of f (r, t) is: 4 We will use symbol δ for the material derivative since the notation D introduced in Sect. 2 is often associated with the material description. A. Ivanova et al. δr f f (r + Δs, t + Δt) − f (r, t) = lim . Δt→0 δt Δt (46) The numerator on the right side of (46) describes the change of the property of the given material point in time Δt. Thus, the material derivative determines a rate of change of the property of the material point located at the observation point at time t.
