Continuum Mechanics – Anthony James Merrill Spencer – Google Books
I have come across maybe two worked-out examples in the book. Would be best used alongside with supplemental material with more worked out example problems. Cook spehcer, Robert Zimmerman No preview available – 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 of fluids and solids.
Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! You’ve successfully reported this review. Group Theory Applied to Chemistry. Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics. The fact that this book advertises being geared toward undergrads is a travesty. Courier CorporationJun 8, – Science – pages. Quantum Mechanics with Basic Field Theory. Ting Limited preview – This text opens with introductory chapters on matrix algebra, vectors and Cartesian tensors, and an analysis of deformation and stress. The Quantum Theory of Nonlinear Optics.
It is very theoretical and vague.
Geometric Algebra for Physicists. The mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids represent the two major areas of physics and applied mathematics that meet in continuum mechanics, a field that forms the foundation of civil and mechanical engineering.
User Review – Flag as inappropriate efd. But in my opinion, this is indeed not a disadvantage, since I prefer more focus on the development of the theory rather than trying to continuhm something fiddling with the examples.
As a conclusion,I would strongly recommend this book to the interested reader. User Review – Flag as inappropriate Has almost no example problems. Selected pages Title Page. The book contains very few examples, which can be bothering for some readers. In addition to many worked examples, this volume features a graded selection of problems with answers, where appropriate.

Vectors and cartesian tensors. As an example, in the discussion about isotropy and anisotropy in the mechanical behaviour of the medium, while most books only rely on the physical notion, this book further introduces more abstract notions such as symmetry groups. Continuum Mechanics Dover books on physics. Volume 2, Superstring Theory and Beyond. Statistical Mechanics in a Nutshell. Succeeding contibuum examine the mathematical aj.m of the laws of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy as well as the formulation of the mechanical constitutive equations for various classes of fluids and solids.
I believe that this book is intended for a more mathematically minded student.
