INTRODUCTION TO THE MECHANICS OF A CONTINUOUS MEDIUM by Lawrence E. Malvern is a lucid, thorough, and unified treatment of the fundamental principles and key theories governing modern applications in solid and fluid mechanics. Demanding the least possible dependence on mathematical formalism, this volume includes selected examples of constitutive equations, references to modern constitutive theory, and brief accounts of fluid mechanics and linearized elasticity. Coverage also includes an introduction to the continuous medium, vectors and tensors, stress, strain and deformation, and general theorems. Two appendices, with examples and exercises, provide valuable guides to general curvilinear tensor components and to physical components in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates. AMONG THE FEATURES Unified presentation of the concepts and principles common to all branches of solid and fluid mechanics; Logically organized and practical approach-designed to appeal to the reader's intuitive understanding…
