The Analysis of Stress and Deformation
by G. W. Housner, T. Vreeland Jr.
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 1965
Number of pages: 448
This book was prepared for a course in the mechanics of deformable bodies at the authors' institution, and is at a level suitable for advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate students. It differs from the traditional treatment by going more deeply into the fundamentals and giving less emphasis to the design aspects of the subject.

This text presents the principles of finite deformation continuum mechanics with many example applications to metals and incompressible viscoelastic materials (rubber). It can serve as lecture notes for a graduate level course in continuum mechanics.
by Gaetano Lanza - J. Wiley
The work is a treatise on strength and stability, a number of subjects usually included in treatises on applied mechanics are omitted. It is primarily a text-book, the different subjects are presented in the best way for the progress of the class.
