Introduction to Continuum Mechanics is a recently updated and revised text
which is perfect for either introductory courses in an undergraduate engineering
curriculum or for a beginning graduate course.

Continuum Mechanics studies the response of materials to different loading
conditions. The concept of tensors is introduced through the idea of linear
transformation in a self-contained chapter, and the interrelation of direct notation, indicial notation, and matrix operations is clearly presented. A wide range of idealized materials are considered through simple static and dynamic problems, and the book contains an abundance of illustrative examples of problems, many with solutions.

Serves as either a introductory undergraduate course or a beginning graduate course textbook.
Includes many problems with illustrations and answers.
