Introduction to Continuum Mechanics
This textbook presents an introduction to continuum mechanics covering fundamental mathematical tools, general laws and major models. The material is based on lectures held at Gubkin's Russian State University of Oil and Gas. It also includes material related to a joint research seminar with the Institute of Problems in Mechanics of the Russian Academy of Science. The knowledge provided is necessary to understand the structure of existing models, to read and understand the literature and to apply existing methods consciously. Results from computer simulations of virtual models of oil-gas-production are presented to illustrate applications. Graduate students as well as researchers in applied mathematics will benefit from this self-contained text which is enriched by many examples and exercises.
Excellent course of continuum mechanics for applied mathematicians?Based on lectures providing many applied problems and examples Appendices include more advanced mathematics
