About the book

CARTESIAN TENSORS AND THE EQUATIONS OF SOLID MECHANICS introduces the mechanics of solids at an intermediate level using Cartesian tensors. The emphasis is on the physical significance and understanding behind the tensor formalism. Included in the book are a brief introduction to general tensors, anisotropy, some elementary concepts revisited, and a short early history of the mechanics of solids.
