The application of the principles of mechanics to bulk matter is divided into the mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids. Solid mechanics is concerned with the stressing, deformation and failure of solid materials and structures.

This text summarizes the physical laws, mathematical methods, and computer algorithms that are used to predict the response of materials and structures to mechanical or thermal loading. It is intended for advanced undergraduate or graduate students.
by G. W. Housner, T. Vreeland Jr. - California Institute of Technology
The book for a course in the mechanics of deformable bodies for advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate students. It goes more deeply into the fundamentals and gives less emphasis to the design aspects of the subject.
