Continuum Mechanics, the application of concepts of time, space, forces, energy, and motion to understand the response of matter to external stimuli by assuming the matter to be infinitely or continuously divisible in space, has played a vital role in our understanding mechanicss the behavior of aerospace vehicles during flight.

This requires a sound understanding It features applications using numerical calculation tools for example in electronics, materials science and surgerywith mathematical coverage geared towards engineering students. Elements of continuum mechanics AIAA education series. Elements of Continuum Mechanics R. Batra is the Clifton C. It is written in a clear and easy-to-read style and provides a thorough overview of non-linear continuum mechanics.

Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Chapter 2 Mathematical Preliminaries.

Special emphasis is placed on constitutive relations. A serious attempt has been made to convey concepts through numerous example problems. By using our website you agree to our use nechanics cookies.

There are several books that cover more advanced material; one such book is The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics by C.

The Best Books of Special emphasis is placed on fo relations. The material included in the book is more than what can reasonably be covered in a week semester. Contents may have variations from the printed book or be mechanice or contain other coding. This book differs from several others in the market in that it provides numerous example problems from everyday life which should help develop elwments better understanding of a nonlinear theory.


Elements of 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. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics- Science – pages.

Theories developed in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters. Batra is od Clifton C. Chapter 9 Wave Propagation. The instructor may decide to teach only a part of chapter 5 and spend sometime in covering the material included in chapters 6 through Elements of continuum mechanics R.

Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. He earned his B. Description This excellent text is the result of over 30 years of teaching university courses on continuum mechanics.

The author’s lecture notes have been adopted by professors at other universities and now these notes have been refined and converted into a book. I very sincerely thank Professor K.

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 – I thank my family and especially my wife, Manju, and two daughters, Monica and Meenakshi, for bearing with me during this endeavor. The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a university setting, instructional materials for continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent study.

He earned his B. Solution of a Cubic Equation. It features many solved examples and exercises that demonstrate the ideas presented. As the ever-growing capabilities of numerical tools are being used to simulate how fluids and solids respond to high temperatures and severe loads, a fundamental understanding of the theory of large coupled thermo-mechanical deformations will play an ever-increasing role.
