Continuum Mechanics: Progress in Fundamentals and Engineering Applications
by Yong X. Gan
Publisher: InTech 2012
Number of pages: 158
Unlike classical Continuum Mechanics books, this book summarizes the advances of Continuum Mechanics in several defined areas. Emphasis is placed on the application aspect. The applications described in the book cover energy materials and systems (fuel cell materials and electrodes), materials removal, and mechanical response/deformation of structural components including plates, pipelines etc.

These are course notes for a mathematics graduate course on classical mechanics. The author started with the Lagrangian approach, with a heavy emphasis on action principles, and derived the Hamiltonian approach from that.
