This specific factor of ZAMP is released to honor Paul M. Naghdi for his contributions to mechanics over the past 40 years and extra. it really is provided in get together of his lengthy, efficient occupation in continuum mechan­ ics; a profession which has been marked by means of a fondness for the intrinsic great thing about the topic, an uncompromising adherence to educational criteria, and an untiring devotion to our occupation. initially, this factor was once deliberate in get together of Naghdi's seventieth birthday, which happened on 29 March 1994. yet, because the papers have been being ready for the click, it turned glaring that the sickness from which Professor Naghdi were anguish in the course of contemporary months was once super critical. On 26 might 1994, a reception happened within the division of Mechanical Engineering at Berkeley, at which Naghdi got The Berkeley quotation (which is given in lieu of an honorary measure) and the place he was once additionally provided with the desk of Contents of the current assortment. Subse­ quently, he had the chance to learn the papers in manuscript shape. He used to be very touched that his colleagues had selected to honor him with their advantageous contributions. the data that he used to be held in such excessive esteem by way of his fellow scientists introduced a distinct excitement and comfort to him in his final weeks. On Saturday night, nine July 1994, Paul Naghdi succumbed to the lung melanoma which he had so courageously endured.

Example text

17) It is important to note that the results (16) and (17) are obtained without appeal to any statement of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Classical statements of the Second Law are proverbially vague,50 and can be interpreted in very different mathematical ways. One element in the classical conception of the Second Law is that in a cyclic process not all of the heat absorbed by a body can be converted into work. A related idea is that it is impossible to reverse a process in which energy is transformed into heat by friction.
