Introduction to Continuum Mechanics
by David J. Raymond
Publisher: New Mexico Tech 1999
Number of pages: 142
This textbook develops the subject of continuum mechanics from the point of view of an applied physicist with interests in geophysics and astrophysics. The basic subjects covered, i. e., elastic bodies and Newtonian fluids, are central to the full spectrum of applications of continuum mechanics.

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.
