About this book
This book presents an introduction into the entire science of Continuum Mechanics in three parts. PART I: Continuum Mechanics introduces into the Foundations using tensors in Cartesian coordinate systems, classical theory of elasticity, and fluid mechanics. PART II: Mechanics of Materials has chapters on viscoelasticity, plasticity, principles of constitutive modelling, and thermodynamics. PART III presents Tensor Analysis and fundamental equations of Continuum Mechanics in curvilinear coordinates.
