An Introduction to Continuum Mechanics by J. N. Reddy

By J. N. Reddy

This best-selling textbook offers the suggestions 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 purposes to difficulties in elasticity, fluid mechanics and warmth move, and provides a quick advent to linear viscoelasticity. The e-book is perfect for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars trying to achieve a powerful history within the simple ideas universal to all significant engineering fields, and in case you will pursue extra paintings in fluid dynamics, elasticity, plates and shells, viscoelasticity, plasticity, and interdisciplinary components equivalent to geomechanics, biomechanics, mechanobiology and nanoscience. The ebook positive factors derivations of the elemental equations of mechanics in invariant (vector and tensor) shape and specification of the governing equations to varied co-ordinate structures, and diverse illustrative examples, bankruptcy summaries and workout difficulties. This moment version contains extra factors, examples and problems.
