Introduction to Continuum Mechanics for Engineers by Ray M. Bowen can be downloaded in pdf format. Engineers rely upon the accuracy of prepackaged computer codes, and determining a code’s validity requires an understanding of continuum mechanics and models.
This self-contained text introduces classical continuum models within a modern framework. Its numerous exercises illustrate the governing principles, linearizations, and other approximations that constitute classical continuum models.
This textbook is intended to introduce engineering graduate students to the essentials of modern Continuum Mechanics. The objective of an introductory course is to establish certain classical continuum models within a modern framework.
