Special emphasis is placed on constitutive relations.
I thank my family and batea my wife, Manju, and two daughters, Monica and Meenakshi, for bearing with me during this endeavor. Account Options Sign in. Chapter 2 Mathematical Preliminaries. Table of contents Preface. Special thanks go to Mrs.
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. Norma Guynn who very patiently converted my hand-written notes into a neat manuscript, and to several members of the publisher for their help in producing the book.
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. There are several books that cover more advanced material; one such book is The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics by C.

The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. Solution of a Cubic Equation. Chapter 5 Constitutive Relations. 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.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics
Today, the great progress that has been made in contjnuum 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.
After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters. This book differs from several others in the market in that it provides numerous example problems from every day continjum which should help develop a better understanding of a nonlinear theory.

The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a university setting, instructional materials for continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent study.

This book provides an up to date, practical explanation of continuum mechanics that will appeal to students and practising engineers alike. Batra No preview available – Chapter 6 Torsion of a Circular Cylinder. He has taken pains to provide an extensive coverage of various constitutive laws beyond the usually covered Hookean solids or Newtonian fluids.
