After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.
Batra Limited preview – The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians. Special thanks go to Mrs. Chapter 5 Constitutive Relations. There are several books that cover more advanced material; one such book is The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics by C. He earned his B. Contents may have variations from the printed book or be incomplete or contain other coding.
Nearly all of the material in chapters 3 and 4 mdchanics to be covered. The instructor may decide to teach only a part of chapter 5 and spend sometime in covering the material included in chapters 6 through Solution of a Cubic Equation. Elements of continuum mechanics R.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics
Chapter 7 Fluid Flow. The Balance Laws Stress Tensors. Batra is uniquely qualified on the subject, and he has written this book in a manner that will make it of interest to both a beginning graduate student as well as an expert in the field. Elements of Continuum Mechanics R. After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.
Wilmanski of the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics; Berlin for his kindness in providing very useful comments on an earlier version of the manuscript. This requires a sound understanding of the basic principles of non-linear continuum mechanics such as those given in this textbook.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics – R. C. Batra – Google Books
It is written in a clear and easy-to-read style and provides a thorough overview of non-linear continuum mechanics. Batra has gone beyond a simple cataloging of such topics as Cartesian tensors, kinematics and the strain tensor, the balance laws, and the stress tensor, etc.
It features many solved examples and exercises that demonstrate the ideas presented. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Elements of continuum mechanics. Today, the great progress that has been made in understanding the forces developed on a vehicle due to the fluid-flow over that vehicle and determining the resulting stresses and the changes in the shape of the vehicle in turn changing the forces acting on the vehicle made of advanced composites is based on knowledge of Continuum Mechanics.
Table of contents Preface. The hope is that after studying material in this book, the reader will find it easier to master the Nonlinear Field Theories and also delve into the literature to learn more about the subject. Chapter 8 Bending of Beams. Depending upon the background of students in the class, one may not spend too much time on the second chapter and encourage students to review it whenever needed.
