Download e-book for iPad: A First Course in Continuum Mechanics (Cambridge Texts in by Oscar Gonzalez,Andrew M. Stuart

By Oscar Gonzalez,Andrew M. Stuart

A concise account of varied vintage theories of fluids and solids, this e-book is for classes in continuum mechanics for graduate scholars and complicated undergraduates. completely class-tested in classes at Stanford college and the collage of Warwick, it's appropriate for either utilized mathematicians and engineers. the single necessities are an introductory undergraduate wisdom of easy linear algebra and differential equations. not like such a lot latest works at this point, this publication covers either isothermal and thermal theories. The theories are derived in a unified demeanour from the elemental stability legislation of continuum mechanics. meant either for school room use and for self-study, every one bankruptcy features a wealth of workouts, with absolutely labored strategies to odd-numbered questions. an entire strategies handbook is out there to teachers upon request. brief bibliographies seem on the finish of every bankruptcy, pointing to fabric which underpins or expands upon the fabric discussed.

The target of this paintings at the mechanics of aeronautical solids, fabrics and constructions is to provide an summary of the foundations helpful for sizing of constructions within the aeronautical box. It starts off via introducing the classical notions of mechanics: rigidity, pressure, habit legislations, and sizing standards, with an emphasis at the standards particular to aeronautics, similar to restrict quite a bit and supreme a lot.
