About this book


The need of generalized continua models is coming from practice. Complex material behavior sometimes cannot be presented by the classical Cauchy continua. At present the attention of the scientists in this field is focused on the most recent research items
• new models,
• application of well-known models to new problems,
• micro-macro aspects,
• computational effort, and
• possibilities to identify the constitutive equations
The new research directions are discussed in this volume - from the point of view of modeling and simulation, identification, and numerical methods.
