Contents Cover; Half-title; Title; Copyright; Contents; Preface; A few words about notations; PART I FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS IN CONTINUUM MECHANICS; CHAPTER ONE Describing the motion of a system: geometry and kinematics; CHAPTER TWO The fundamental law of dynamics; CHAPTER THREE The Cauchy stress tensor and the Piola-Kirchhoff tensor. Applications; CHAPTER FOUR Real and virtual powers; CHAPTER FIVE Deformation tensor, deformation rate tensor, constitutive laws; CHAPTER SIX Energy equations and shock equations; PART II PHYSICS OF FLUIDS; CHAPTER SEVEN General properties of Newtonian fluids
Summary Temam and Miranville present core topics within the general themes of fluid and solid mechanics. The brisk style allows the text to cover a wide range of topics including viscous flow, magnetohydrodynamics, atmospheric flows, shock equations, turbulence, nonlinear solid mechanics, solitons, and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation
