Green's Function and Boundary Elements of Multifield Materialscontains a comprehensive treatment of multifield materials under coupled thermal, magnetic, electric, and mechanical loads. Its easy-to-understand text clarifies some of the most advanced techniques for deriving Green's function and the related boundary element formulation of magnetoelectroelastic materials: Radon transform, potential function approach, Fourier transform. Our hope in preparing this book is to attract interested readers and researchers to a new field that continues to provide fascinating and technologically important challenges. You will benefit from the authors' thorough coverage of general principles for each topic, followed by detailed mathematical derivation and worked examples as well as tables and figures where appropriate.

  • In-depth explanations of the concept of Green's function
  • Coupled thermo-magneto-electro-elastic analysis
  • Detailed mathematical derivation for Green's functions
Qing-Hua Qin is a professor of solid mechanics at the Australian National University. He has worked in the area of applied mechanics for more than two decades and has published more than 160 scientific papers and two books in the field of computational mechanics and multifield materials.
