About the Authors
  • This textbook on continuum mechanics reflects the modern view that scientists and engineers should be trained to think and work in multidisciplinary environments. The book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. The book features: derivations of the basic equations of mechanics in invariant (vector and tensor) form and specializations of the governing equations to various coordinate systems; numerous illustrative examples; chapter-end summaries; and exercise problems to test and extend the understanding of concepts presented.

    • Offers an easy and clear presentation of difficult concepts
    • Illustration of concepts with numerous examples taken from different fields
    • Exercise problems in every chapter, and applications to problems in elasticity, fluid mechanics and heat transfer - solutions manual is also available to instructors
