Continuum Mechanics – Chandrasekharaiah D S, Debnath Lokenath – Google Books
Please try again later. This book contains very little continuum mechanics in it. It starts out with a tedious development of suffix notation, as well as two chapters chandrasekharaah the properties of cartesian tensors of second order. Unfortunately, this includes proving such basic things as the sum of two tensors being a tensor.
The author seems to also enjoy avoiding conventional notation wherever possible, and places everything products of matrices, products of matrices and vectors, cross products in suffix notation, which blurs clarity quite often for those new to the convention. Furthermore, the fundamental laws of continuum mechanics are delayed until page the third continumu last chapterleaving only two chapters a measly two-thirds of the book for elasticity and fluid mechanics.
Finally, the style is a fairly strict theorem-proof, which makes it quite a dry read. One of the best books on continuum mechanics I ever read during my PhD. Very few books are as concise and mathematically rigorous. This book presents text in rock solid mathematical rigor. Excellent book at providing the basic mathematical formulation for continuum mechanics.

Not many applications but then you should be reading books on elasticity or solid mechanics for that stuff anyway. I have found this book to be inciteful and helpful in covering Continuum Mechanics material. It is a great building block to start with.
This book is a nice tensor analysis book, however, basically nothing about constitutive theory one of the most important results in continuum physics is presented.
There are other continuum mechanics books out there in this price range that are better e. This is a very good introductory book on continuum mechanics. I believe that the use of the suffix notation that the authors adopt throughout the book makes mechabics easier for the reader to put in practical use the theoretical principles developed in chapters 5,6,7 and 8.
One person found this helpful. In this book, suffix notation is presented in a short but comprehensive manner. All the disciplines of mechanics using notations of tensors mechaincs vectors, are readily understandable and coherent. An excelent text on Continuum Mechanics form the view point af an Applied Mathematician.
