Introduction to Continuum Mechanics for Engineers
by Ray M. Bowen
Publisher: Springer 2007
Number of pages: 305
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. The book is essentially self contained and should be suitable for self study.

These lecture notes are suitable for a one-semester course at the third-year undergraduate level. The table of contents: Newtonian mechanics; Lagrangian mechanics; Hamiltonian mechanics; Term project: Motion around a black hole.
Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.
