The book unites the basic theoretical facts of solid mechanics - mechanics of materials and mechanics of wave processes. It links three important facts: physical properties of materials, mathematical models and the propagation of waves.

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.
