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

By J. N. Reddy

This best-selling textbook provides the innovations 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 functions to difficulties in elasticity, fluid mechanics and warmth move, and provides a quick advent to linear viscoelasticity. The booklet is perfect for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars seeking to achieve a robust historical past within the easy rules universal to all significant engineering fields, and when you will pursue extra paintings in fluid dynamics, elasticity, plates and shells, viscoelasticity, plasticity, and interdisciplinary parts reminiscent of geomechanics, biomechanics, mechanobiology and nanoscience. The booklet positive factors derivations of the fundamental 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 comprises extra reasons, examples and problems.
