Table of contents Preface. After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. As we develop materials for new generations of vehicles varying from a micro-UAV to an Airbus and from a The AIAA Education Book Series aims to cover a very broad range of topics in the general aerospace field, including basic theory, applications, and design.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics R. It correlates ideas with concepts learned in lower level undergraduate classes, in order to make the material more accessible and comprehensible to a wider range of students. My library Help Advanced Book Search. The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians. He has taken pains to provide an extensive coverage of various constitutive laws beyond the usually covered Hookean solids or Newtonian fluids.
I thank my family and especially my wife, Manju, and two daughters, Monica and Meenakshi, for bearing with me during this endeavor. The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a university setting, instructional materials for continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent study.
Noll, Handbuch der Physik,Springer, Today, the great progress that has been made in understanding the forces developed on a vehicle due to the fluid-flow over that vehicle and determining the resulting stresses and the changes in the shape of the vehicle in turn changing the forces acting on the vehicle made of advanced composites is based on knowledge of Continuum Mechanics.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics
After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters. I very sincerely thank Professor K. From inside the book.
Contents may have variations from the printed book or be incomplete or contain other coding. Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. Depending upon the background of students in the class, one may not spend too much time on the second chapter and encourage students to review it whenever needed. The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians.
As the ever-growing capabilities of numerical tools are being used to simulate how fluids and solids respond to high temperatures and severe loads, a fundamental understanding of the theory of large coupled thermo-mechanical deformations will play an ever-increasing role.
It features many solved examples and exercises that demonstrate the ideas presented. Batra Limited preview – Chapter one is very brief and is quite elementary; it does not require any class time.

This book provides an up to date, practical explanation of continuum mechanics that will appeal to students and practising engineers alike. Elemments Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics- Science – pages. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, This book differs from several others in the market in that it provides numerous example problems from every day life which should help develop a better understanding of a nonlinear theory.
Theories developed in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters. Elements of contunuum mechanics R. Special thanks go to Mrs. Nearly all of the material in chapters mechaics and 4 ought to be covered.
The material included in the book is more than what can reasonably be covered in a week semester.
