Continuum mechanics via problems and exercises. Part I: Theory and problems. Part II: Answers and solutions. (English) Zbl 0941.76001
World Scientific Series on Nonlinear Science. Series A. 19. Singapore: World Scientific). 552 p. (1996).
This volume is intended to help graduate-level students of continuum mechanics to become more proficient in its applications through the solution of analytical problems. Published as two separate books – part I on theory and problems with part II providing solutions to the problems – professors may also find it quite useful in preparing their lectures and examinations. Part I includes a brief theoretical treatment for each of the major areas of continuum mechanics (fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, elastic and inelastic solids, electricity, dimensional analysis, and so on), as well as the references for further reading. The bulk of part II consists of about 1000 solved problems. The book includes bibliographical references and index.
