Book Description Report this book

The book unites the basic theoretical facts from two parts of solid mechanics – mechanics of materials and mechanics of wave processes. It links three important for engineering mechanics groups of fundamental facts from modern mechanics: the basic physical properties of materials; the reflecting these properties mathematical models and the corresponding to these models mechanical theories; the characteristic features of propagation of waves while the waves being analyzed within the framework of the basic models on examples of simplest types of waves.

Presentations and lectures delivered at more than 150 international congresses, conferences, symposia and semi-nars (Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Den-mark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan), membership in scientific and program committees of many international symposia. Two bases – Thomson Reuters ISI and Google Scholar – differ names Rushchitsky and Rushchitskii and propose (thinking Rushchitsky and Rushchitskii as two different persons) two different lists of publications. Scopus gives the united list for both names, but for the option Rushchitsk* only. Besides that, ISI and Scopus propose two dif-ferent lists: for the having of electronic copies publications and for the publications included into the data base without the electronic copies (books, some articles, abstracts and so on).
