**Introduction to Continuum Mechanics**

by David J. Raymond

**Publisher**: New Mexico Tech 1999**Number of pages**: 142

**Description**:

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.
