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.

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.
