Theory of Waves in Materials
by Jeremiah Rushchitsky
Publisher: BookBoon 2011
Number of pages: 270
The book unites the basic theoretical facts from two parts of solid mechanics - mechanics of materials and mechanics of wave processes. It links three important facts from modern mechanics: the basic physical properties of materials; the mathematical models and the corresponding mechanical theories; the characteristic features of propagation of waves.

This text is an introductory treatment of Modern Materials, combining the elements of mechanical theory with those of material and its behavior. The experiments are presented in an action-oriented format combininga textbook with a laboratory manual.

This text presents the principles of finite deformation continuum mechanics with many example applications to metals and incompressible viscoelastic materials (rubber). It can serve as lecture notes for a graduate level course in continuum mechanics.

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.
