Finding libraries that hold this item Datta, Pure and Applied Geophysics, “I completely agree with the reviewer of the first edition that this book provides an excellent, lzutrup introduction to the field of continuum mechanics. The second edition has been streamlined, and the structure of the presentation has been improved. The text lautup exceptionally clear and well structured, and the breadth of the fields from which the author chooses his illustrating examples is impressive.

I can warmly recommend this book to everyone with an interest in continuum mechanics, lecturers and students alike. Lecturers will find various phgsics anecdotes, innumerable examples and applications, and a modern account of almost all basic aspects of continuum mechanics that will provide an excellent foundation for a lecture course ot this subject. Students can benefit from the author’s deep physical insight into many difficult problems as well as his mastery of mathematical analysis.

Although continuoue starts from the very beginning of the subject, it also reaches advanced topics, but without discontinuities along the way. A good introductory course could be based on this material. The emphasis is on understanding the problems and obtaining analytical solutions, but there are two chapters on computational methods, for static mattter and for fluid dynamics. This is an excellent text, which ought to inspire students and teachers alike with the richness of behaviour that is contained within a few continuum equations – equations that are easy to derive but often far from easy to solve.


Contimuous subject may have its roots in the nineteenth century, but this book shows that it is still alive, relevant and challenging in the twenty-first.

The graphs and figures in the side panels I expect will be extremely helpful The book is at the same time introductory and advanced, and the range of topics is exceptionally wide.

For a student who has already encountered solid and fluid mechanics, the text offers rigor and breadth; nenny is asserted, everything is derived. You may have already requested this item.
