Continuum mechanics is a branch of mechanics that deals with the mechanical behavior of materials modeled as a continuous mass rather than as discrete particles.

Continuum mechanics is a branch of mechanics that deals with the mechanical behavior of materials modeled as a continuous mass rather than as discrete particles. The French mathematician Augustin-Louis Cauchy was the first to formulate such models in the 19th century. Modeling an object as a continuum assumes that the substance of the object completely fills the space it occupies.

Classical continuum mechanics deals with finding the spatial configuration of an elastic body that is subjected to external forces. This forward problem is attributed to Sir Isaac Newton and therefore termed Newtonian mechanics. In the associated inverse problem, which is attributed to John Douglas Eshelby and therefore termed Eshelbian mechanics, we are concerned with the forces applied to the spatial configuration

The mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids represent the two major areas of physics and applied mathematics . The aim of this book is to provide an introduction to the theory of continuum mechanics in a form which is suitable for undergraduate students.

The mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids represent the two major areas of physics and applied mathematics that meet in continuum mechanics, a field that forms the foundation of civil and mechanical engineering. This unified approach to the teaching of fluid and solid mechanics focuses on the general mechanical principles that apply to all materials. It is based on lectures which I have given in the University of Nottingham during the last fourteen years.

me338A - continuum mechanics. although the basic concepts of continuum mechanics have been established more than five decades ago, the 21 century faces many new and exciting potential applications of continuum mechanics that go way beyond the standard classical theory. when applying continuum mechanics to these challenging new phenomena, it is important to understand the main three ingredients of continuum mechanics: the kinematic equations, the balance equations and the constitutive equations.
