A First Course in Continuum Mechanics (Cambridge Texts in by Oscar Gonzalez,Andrew M. Stuart

By Oscar Gonzalez,Andrew M. Stuart

A concise account of assorted vintage theories of fluids and solids, this publication is for classes in continuum mechanics for graduate scholars and complicated undergraduates. completely class-tested in classes at Stanford college and the college of Warwick, it really is compatible for either utilized mathematicians and engineers. the single must haves are an introductory undergraduate wisdom of simple linear algebra and differential equations. not like such a lot current works at this point, this publication covers either isothermal and thermal theories. The theories are derived in a unified demeanour from the elemental stability legislation of continuum mechanics. meant either for lecture room use and for self-study, every one bankruptcy incorporates a wealth of routines, with totally labored recommendations to odd-numbered questions. a whole ideas handbook is on the market to teachers upon request. brief bibliographies seem on the finish of every bankruptcy, pointing to fabric which underpins or expands upon the cloth discussed.
