About this Textbook

This publication is aimed at students, teachers, and researchers of Continuum Mechanics and focused extensively on stating and developing Initial Boundary Value equations used to solve physical problems. With respect to notation, the tensorial, indicial and Voigt notations have been used indiscriminately.

 

The book is divided into twelve chapters with the following topics: Tensors, Continuum Kinematics, Stress, The Objectivity of Tensors, The Fundamental Equations of Continuum Mechanics, An Introduction to Constitutive Equations, Linear Elasticity, Hyperelasticity, Plasticity (small and large deformations), Thermoelasticity (small and large deformations), Damage Mechanics (small and large deformations), and An Introduction to Fluids. Moreover, the text is supplemented with over 280 figures, over 100 solved problems, and 130 references.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is meant as a textbook for master and doctoral students and researchers. It is based on lecture notes of civil engineering courses of the author given at the University of Castillia-La Mancha (Spain). So the reader can expect a careful and detailed introduction to the subject without too much novelty. … The book is perhaps helpful for those readers who have already a strong background in continuum mechanics and want to find additional information on topics … .” (Albrecht Bertram, zbMATH, Vol. 1277, 2014)
