Continuum Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics) by A. J. M. Spencer

By A. J. M. Spencer

The mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids signify the 2 significant components of physics and utilized arithmetic that meet in continuum mechanics, a box that kinds the basis of civil and mechanical engineering. This unified method of the educating of fluid and stable mechanics makes a speciality of the final mechanical rules that practice to all fabrics. scholars who've familiarized themselves with the fundamental rules can pass directly to concentrate on any of different branches of continuum mechanics. this article opens with introductory chapters on matrix algebra, vectors and Cartesian tensors, and an research of deformation and rigidity. Succeeding chapters study the mathematical statements of the legislation of conservation of mass, momentum, and effort in addition to the formula of the mechanical constitutive equations for numerous periods of fluids and solids. as well as many labored examples, this quantity encompasses a graded collection of difficulties (with solutions, the place appropriate). aimed at undergraduate scholars of utilized arithmetic, it's going to additionally end up helpful to physicists and engineers. 1992 variation.
