This book was born with the vocation of being a tool for the training of engi- neers in continuum mechanics. In fact, it is the fruit of the experience in teaching. The key mathematical concept in continuum mechanics is the tensor -- in no . It is this assumed scale separation that makes continuum mechanics a sig-. Problem By considering the parallelogram described in Figure in which M is the midpoint of the segment AB, N is the midpoint of CB, P is the midpoint.

Introduction to Continuum Mechanics by David J.

Raymond This textbook develops the subject of continuum mechanics from the point of view of an applied physicist with interests in geophysics and astrophysics. For example, although the continuum approach adequately describes the behaviors of real materials in many circumstances, it does not yield results that are in accord with experimental observations in the propagation of waves of extremely small wavelength.

On the other hand, a rarefied gas may be adequately described by a continuum in certain circumstances. At any rate, it is misleading to justify the continuum approach on the basis of the number of molecules in a given volume. After all, an infinitesimal volume in the limit contains no molecules at all.

Neither is it necessary to infer that quantities occurring in a continuum theory must be interpreted as certain particular statistical averages. In fact, it has been known that the same continuum equations can be arrived at by different hypotheses about the molecular structure and definitions of gross variables. Though molecular-statistical theory, whenever available, does enhance understanding of the continuum theory, the point to be made is simply that whether the continuum theory is justified in a given situation is a matter of experimental test and of philosophy.

Suffice it to say that more than years of experience have justified such a theory in a wide variety of situations. Continuum mechanics studies the response of materials to different loading conditions. Its subject matter can be divided into two main parts: 1 general principles common to all media and 2 constitutive equations defining idealized materials. All rights reserved.

Mathematically, there are two equivalent forms of the general principles: 1 the integral form, formulated for a finite volume of material in the continuum, and 2 the field equations for differential volume of material particles at every point of the field of interest. Field equations are often derived from the integral form.

They can also be derived directly from the free body of a differential volume. The latter approach seems to better suit beginners.

In this text both approaches are presented. Field equations are important wherever the variations of the variables in the field are either of interest by themselves or are needed to get the desired information. On the other hand, the integral forms of conservation laws lend themselves readily to certain approximate solutions. Idealized materials represent certain aspects of the mechanical behaviors of natural materials.

Introduction to Continuum Mechanics, Fourth Edition

For example, for many materials, under restricted conditions, the deformation caused by the application of loads disappears with the removal of the loads. This aspect of material behaviors is represented by the constitutive equation of an elastic body.

Under even more restricted conditions, the state of stress at a point depends linearly on the change of lengths and angles suffered by elements at the point measured from the state where the external and internal forces vanish. The previous expression defines the linearly elastic solid.

Continuum mechanics with torsion

Another example is supplied by the classical definition of viscosity, which is based on the assumption that the state of stress depends linearly on the instantaneous rates of change of lengths and angles. Such a constitutive equation defines the linearly viscous fluid. The mechanical behaviors of real materials vary not only from material to material but also with different loading conditions for a given material.

This leads to the formulation of many constitutive equations defining the many different aspects of material behaviors. In this text we present four idealized models and study the behaviors they represent by means of some solutions of boundary-value problems.This approach is favored by several reviewers of the current edition; the authors are indebted to their suggestions.

Theories developed in earlier chapters are illustrated through solutions of several nonlinear and linear problems in latter chapters. They can also be derived directly from the free body of a differential volume.
