Description

This volume is intended to help graduate-level students of Continuum Mechanics become more proficient in its applications through the solution of analytical problems. Published as two separate books - Part I on Theory and Problems with Part II providing Solutions to the problems - professors may also find it quite useful in preparing their lectures and examinations. Part I includes a brief theoretical treatment for each of the major areas of Continuum Mechanics (fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, elastic and inelastic solids, electricity, dimensional analysis, and so on), as well as the references for further reading. The bulk of Part II consists of about 1000 solved problems. The book includes bibliographical references and index.

Contents

Part 1 Theory and problems: basic concepts used for description of motion and deformation of a continuum; general laws and equations of continuum mechanics; thermodynamics of continua; discontinuity surfaces in continuum media; fluid mechanics; elasticity theory; inelastic solids; general properties of electromagnetic field; basic notions of relativistic kinematics and dynamics; models of media interacting with electromagnetic field; dimensional analysis and modelling. Part 2 Answers and solutions: basic concepts used for description of motion and deformation of a continuum; general laws and equations of continuum mechanics; thermodynamics of continua; discontinuity surfaces in continuum media; fluid mechanics.
