Introduction to Continuum Mechanics
by David J. Raymond
Publisher: New Mexico Tech 1999
Number of pages: 142
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.

This is a book about the Mechanics of Solids, Statics, the Strength of Materials, and Elasticity Theory. Along the way you will learn about stress, strain, the behavior of trusses, beams, of shafts that carry torsion, even columns that may buckle.

The work forms an elementary consecutive treatise on the subject of Internal Stress and Strain. The whole is illustrated by a systematic and graduated set of Examples. At every point graphical methods are combined with the analytical.
