By Ray M. Bowen

This self-contained graduate-level textual content introduces classical continuum types inside a latest framework. Its quite a few routines illustrate the governing rules, linearizations, and different approximations that represent classical continuum models.
Starting with an summary of one-dimensional continuum mechanics, the textual content advances to examinations of the kinematics of movement, the governing equations of stability, and the entropy inequality for a continuum. the most section of the publication includes versions of fabric habit and provides whole formulations of varied normal continuum types. the ultimate bankruptcy comprises an introductory dialogue of fabrics with inner nation variables. large appendixes conceal all the mathematical historical past essential to comprehend the textual content in addition to result of illustration theorems. appropriate for self sustaining examine, this quantity positive aspects 280 routines and a hundred and seventy references.
