Download An Introduction to Continuum Mechanics by J. N. Reddy PDF

By J. N. Reddy

This best-selling textbook provides the ideas 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 gives a quick creation to linear viscoelasticity. The e-book is perfect for complex undergraduates and graduate scholars seeking to achieve a powerful history within the uncomplicated rules 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 parts akin to geomechanics, biomechanics, mechanobiology and nanoscience. The publication good points derivations of the fundamental equations of mechanics in invariant (vector and tensor) shape and specification of the governing equations to varied co-ordinate platforms, and various illustrative examples, bankruptcy summaries and workout difficulties. This moment variation contains extra reasons, examples and problems.
