"Analyzes a wide range of problem classes originating in applied mechanics, stressing the use of influence (Green's) functions in their analysis. Provides an extensive list of influence functions and matrices-several in print for the first time. Addresses areas such as fluid flow, acoustics, electromagnetism, heat transfer, and elasticity."
Table of Contents
Green's functions for ODEs; influence functions for beams; some beam problems; assemblies of 1-D elements; potential and related fields; problems of solid mechanics; compound media; heat equation. Appendices: catalogue of Green's functions; answers and comments.
