Summary: This unified approach to the teaching of fluid and solid mechanics focuses on the general mechanical principles that apply to all materials. It opens with introductory chapters on matrix algebra, vectors and Cartesian tensors, and an analysis of deformation and stress. Succeeding chapters examine the mathematical statements of the laws of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy as well as the formulation of the mechanical constitutive equations for various classes ...show more of fluids and solids. In addition to many worked examples, this volume features a graded selection of problems (with answers, where appropriate). Geared toward undergraduate students of applied mathematics, it will also prove valuable to physicists and engineers. 1992 ed. 23 figures. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 04
