Note 
From the contents: Preface. 1: Tensors  2 : Lagrangian and Eulerian Descriptions  3 : Deformations  4: Kinematics of Continua  5: Fundamental Laws: Principle of Virtual Work  6: Linear Elasticity  Index 

This volume combines an illustration of the theory of tensors and the foundations of continuum mechanics. This work lays the groundwork for more technical subjects as strength of materials, plasticity, viscoelasticity, and nonlinear continuum mechanics. The material is presented with great pedagogical care, a summary of formulae and a glossary of symbols are provided, as well as ninetyfive solved problems. The book is suitable as a text for third year students of mathematics, physics and engineering, and for anyone wishing to acquire insight into the mathematics of mechanics, the mathematics of physics, the mathematics of engineering, continuum mechanics, elasticity and viscoelasticity, linear and multilinear algebra, or matrix theory
