The presented models can be generalized for the case of finite deformations in the construction of images in spaces of nonholonomic measures. Formulation of associated boundary value problems of solid mechanics in variational form, the issues of non-uniqueness and stability of finite deformation processes are also discussed. More...

The monograph describes the modern understanding of the evolution of structural and phase states of dislocation substructures and the fracture surface at high-cycle fatigue of stainless steels of different structural classes. Modern methods of physical materials and primarily scanning and transmission electron microscopy, the analysis of changes in fine defect substructure and the fracture surfaces of fatigue during normal processing conditions and low energy electron beams, significantly increases the fatigue life are discussed. The physical mechanisms of increasing fatigue life are discussed.

THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN ARCHITECTURE: A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF FORM AND FUNCTION
THE FUTURE OF POST-HUMAN ARCHITECTURE: A PREFACE TO A NEW THEORY OF FORM AND FUNCTION
Peter Baofu (USA)
ISBN-13: 978-1-907343-20-9
610 pages - Hardback - January 2012
£50.00/$80.00
This book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of architecture, especially in the dialectic context of form and function-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other).

Differently put, this book offers a new theory (that is, the transcendent theory of architecture) to go beyond the existing approaches in a novel way.

If successful, this seminal project is to fundamentally change the way that we think about architecture, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what the author originally called its "post-human" fate
