About this Textbook

This outstanding approach to Continuum Mechanics follows the traditional lectures held at the Ecole Polytechnique. Its highly mathematical level of teaching, together with abstracts, summaries, boxes of essential formulas and numerous exercises with solutions, make the Handbook of Continuum Mechanics the most complete book in this area. Students, lecturers, and practitioners alike will find it a rich source for their studies or daily work. A fold-out glossary and a short reader as a booklet are included.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"The book contains an introduction to the fundamental concepts of kinematics, dynamics, and thermodynamics within the context of non-linear field theories. … All in all, the book is an original and inventive introduction into the fundamentals of continuum mechanics … ." (Technische Mechanik, Vol.24 (1), 2004)

"What makes the book different from others is a unified treatment of forces acting on a continuum by using the principle of virtual work as well as an original choice of material presentation including, in particular, problems at the end of each chapter. … In its present form, the handbook could be used world-wide in universities and polytechnic schools as a textbook on continuum mechanics. Those who have been doing research in the field for years, should also find the book useful for teaching purposes." (Jozef Ignaczak, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 981, 2002)
