Microscopic and Long-wave instabilities in soft fiber composites

Dear Colleagues,

Our paper on elastic instabilities in soft fiber composites recently got published in International Journal of Engineering Science. In this paper, we explore how the stiffening behavior of composites phases influences the development of instabilities and associated buckling patterns. To do that, we use non-Gaussian hyperleastic  model to define the constitutive behavior of phases.

Hamilton's principle

I continue to receive inquiries about the monograph Hamilton's Principle in Continuum Mechanics, published in 1985 as Research Notes in Mathematics No. 139 by Pitman Publishing, Ltd. Now out of print, it is in the public domain and is attached here. My initial objective in writing it was to discuss the theoretical foundations of the applications of Hamilton's principle to mixtures that I had developed with D. S. Drumheller and others during the preceding decade.
