Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. 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. Account Options Sign in. Theories developed in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters.
Batra Snippet view – Chapter 7 Fluid Flow. Chapter 9 Wave Propagation. This requires a sound understanding of the basic principles of non-linear continuum mechanics such as those given in this textbook.
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. The book is oriented more towards engineers than mathematicians.
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 of the behavior of aerospace vehicles during flight.
This book differs from several others in the market in that it provides numerous example problems from everyday life which should help develop a better understanding of a nonlinear theory.
Elements of Continuum Mechanics R. He has taken pains to provide an extensive coverage of various constitutive laws beyond the usually covered Hookean solids or Newtonian fluids. Contents data are machine generated based on pre-publication provided by the publisher. Chapter one is very brief and is quite elementary; it does not require any class time.
I thank my family and especially my wife, Manju, and two daughters, Monica and Meenakshi, for bearing with me during this endeavor. Common terms and phrases angle assume axial strain axial stretch axis balance of linear boundary conditions Cauchy stress tensor components constitutive relations 5. Theories developed in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters.
Nearly all of the material in chapters 3 and 4 ought to be covered. The Best Books of Batra is the Clifton C. It features many solved examples and exercises that demonstrate the ideas presented. 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.
It correlates ideas with concepts learned in lower level undergraduate classes, in order to make the material more accessible and comprehensible to a wider range of students. Solution of a Cubic Equation.
