By J. N. Reddy

This best-selling textbook provides the strategies of continuum mechanics in an easy but rigorous demeanour. It introduces the invariant shape in addition to the part kind of the elemental equations and their functions to difficulties in elasticity, fluid mechanics and warmth move, and provides a short creation to linear viscoelasticity. The ebook is perfect for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars seeking to achieve a powerful history within the uncomplicated rules universal to all significant engineering fields, and if you happen to will pursue extra paintings in fluid dynamics, elasticity, plates and shells, viscoelasticity, plasticity, and interdisciplinary parts akin to geomechanics, biomechanics, mechanobiology and nanoscience. The booklet positive aspects derivations of the elemental equations of mechanics in invariant (vector and tensor) shape and specification of the governing equations to numerous co-ordinate platforms, and various illustrative examples, bankruptcy summaries and workout difficulties. This moment variation comprises extra motives, examples and problems.
