Ellis Horwood Series in Mathematics and Its Applications. Chichester: Ellis Horwood Limited; New York etc.: Halsted Press: A Division of John Wiley & Sons. XV, 532 p. £35.00 (1984).
A detailed development of the subject is presented beginning with tensor analysis and ending with comparisons of theoretical predictions with measured results. All derivations are thorough. The book is suitable as a text as many problems are presented for the reader. Reviewer believes this book would be an excellent text as well as a valuable reference book to workers in continuum mechanics.
