The Analysis of Stress and Deformation
by G. W. Housner, T. Vreeland Jr.
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 1965
Number of pages: 448
This book was prepared for a course in the mechanics of deformable bodies at the authors' institution, and is at a level suitable for advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate students. It differs from the traditional treatment by going more deeply into the fundamentals and giving 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.

The 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 are central to the full spectrum of applications of continuum mechanics.
