Opis

This book provides a detailed history of the
United States National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
(USNC/TAM) of the US National Academies, the relationship between the USNC/TAM
and IUTAM, and a review of the many mechanicians who developed the field over
time. It emphasizes the birth and growth of USNC/TAM, the birth and growth of
the larger International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM),
and explores the work of mechanics from Aristotle to the present. Written by
the former Secretary of USNC/TAM, Dr. Carl T. Herakovich of the University of
Virginia, the book profiles luminaries of mechanics including Galileo, Newton,
Bernoulli, Euler, Cauchy, Prandtl, Einstein, von Kármán, Timoshenko, and in so doing
provides insight into centuries of scientific and technologic advance.
