This publication investigates collisions taking place within the movement of solids, within the movement of fluids but additionally within the movement of pedestrians in crowds. The period of those offered collisions is brief in comparison to the total period of the movement: they're assumed immediate. The cutting edge suggestion validated during this booklet is procedure made up of solids, is deformable simply because their relative place adjustments. The definition of the velocities of deformation of the procedure brought within the classical advancements of mechanics, the primary of the digital paintings and the legislation of thermodynamics, permits a wide range of purposes akin to crowd motions, particles circulate motions, and form reminiscence alloys motions. The set of the functions is even better: social sciences and mechanics are unified to foretell the movement of crowds with software to move administration and to evacuation of theaters management.
