Description
INTRODUCTION TO CONTINUUM MECHANICS
The fundamental concepts of continuum mechanics are necessary for studying the mechanical behavior of solids and fluids. Includes a review of vectors and tensors; stress; strain and deformation; general principles in the form of balance laws; constitutive equations and their restrictions; and specialization to the theories of linearized elasticity and fluid mechanics.
