Dynamics of fluidconveying Timoshenko pipes
Petrus, Ryan Curtis (Texas A&M University, 20060816)Structures conveying mass lose stability once the mass exceeds a certain critical velocity. The type of instability observed depends on the nature of the supports that the structure has. If the structure (beam or pipe) is ... 
Introduction to continuum mechanics for engineers
Bowen, Ray M. (Plenum Press, 1989)This textbook is intended to introduce engineering graduate students to the essentials of modern Continuum Mechanics. The objective of an introductory course is to establish certain classical continuum models within a ... 
Introduction to vectors and tensors, Vol 1: linear and multilinear algebra
Bowen, Ray M.; Wang, C. C. (Plenum Press, 1976)This work represents our effort to present the basic concepts of vector and tensor analysis. Volume I begins with a brief discussion of algebraic structures followed by a rather detailed discussion of the algebra of vectors ... 
Introduction to vectors and tensors, Vol 2: vector and tensor analysis
Bowen, Ray M.; Wang, C.C. (20060620)This is the second volume of a twovolume work on vectors and tensors. Volume 1 is concerned with the algebra of vectors and tensors, while this volume is concerned with the geometrical aspects of vectors and tensors. ...

Porous Elasticity: Lectures on the elasticity of porous materials as an application of the theory of mixtures
Bowen, Ray M. (20140122)This work was originally planned as a textbook exploiting the structure of the Theory of Mixtures as the basis for the study of porous elasticity. The decision to write this book was made approximately thirty years ago! ...
