Written for beginners, this text provides coverage of the basic concepts, general principles and applications of continuum mechanics. It deals with matrices, vectors and tensors specifically tailored to the needs of continuum mechanics. In addition, it develops the concepts and principles common to all areas in solid and fluid mechanics with a common notation and terminology. The book covers the fundamentals of elasticity theory and fluid mechanics and features over 250 worked examples and more than 500 worked exercises.
