About this title:
Synopsis:
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.

Book Description:
This textbook reflects the modern view that scientists and engineers should think and work in multidisciplinary environments. It is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It introduces continuum mechanics simply with examples but does not compromise mathematically. It features applications to problems in elasticity, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer.
