After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, The Best Books of Elements of continuum mechanics. Special emphasis is placed on constitutive relations. Continuum Mechanics, the application of concepts of time, space, forces, energy, and motion to understand the response of matter to external stimuli by assuming the matter to be infinitely or continuously divisible in space, has played a vital role in our understanding of the behavior of aerospace vehicles during flight.
We can notify you when this item is back in stock. 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 is written in a clear and easy-to-read style and provides a thorough overview of non-linear continuum mechanics.

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. After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.
Elements of continuum mechanics R.
A serious attempt has been made to convey concepts through numerous example problems. My library Help Advanced Book Search. 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 slements of a nonlinear theory.
There are several books that cover more advanced material; one such book is The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics by C.
Table of contents for Elements of continuum mechanics
Batra is the Clifton C. Chapter 10 Spherical and Cylindrical Pressure Vessels. The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians.
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics- Science – pages. This requires a sound understanding of the basic principles of non-linear continuum mechanics such as those given in this textbook. Chapter 2 Mathematical Preliminaries. Looking for beautiful books? Suggestions for new topics or authors are always welcome.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics R. The Balance Laws Stress Tensors. Theories conhinuum in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters. Table of contents Preface. The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a university setting, instructional ckntinuum for continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent study.
The author’s lecture notes have been adopted by professors at other universities and now these notes have been refined and converted into a book. Batra is uniquely qualified on the subject, and he has written this book in a manner that will make it of interest to both a beginning graduate student as well as an expert in the field.
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.
This book differs from several others in the market in that it provides numerous example problems from everyday life which should help develop a better understanding of a nonlinear theory.
