**Solid Mechanics**

by James R. Rice

**Publisher**: Harvard University 2010**Number of pages**: 89

**Description**:

The application of the principles of mechanics to bulk matter is conventionally 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.
