This textbook on continuum mechanics displays the trendy view that scientists and engineers can be informed to imagine and paintings in multidisciplinary environments. A direction on continuum mechanics introduces the elemental ideas of mechanics and prepares scholars for complex classes in conventional and rising fields comparable to biomechanics and nanomechanics. this article introduces the most innovations of continuum mechanics easily with wealthy assisting examples yet doesn't compromise mathematically in delivering the invariant shape in addition to part kind of the fundamental equations and their functions to difficulties in elasticity, fluid mechanics, and warmth move. The booklet is perfect for complex undergraduate and starting graduate scholars. The ebook beneficial properties: derivations of the elemental equations of mechanics in invariant (vector and tensor) shape and specializations of the governing equations to numerous coordinate structures; quite a few illustrative examples; chapter-end summaries; and workout difficulties to check and expand the knowledge of techniques presented.
