## Introduction to Tensor Calculus and Continuum Mechanicsby John H. Heinbockel Download Book(Respecting the intellectual property of others is utmost important to us, we make every effort to make sure we only link to legitimate sites, such as those sites owned by authors and publishers. If you have any questions about these links, please contact us.) link 1 About BookBook DescriptionIntroduction to Tensor Calculus and Continuum Mechanics is an advanced College level mathematics text. The first part of the text introduces basic concepts, notations and operations associated with the subject area of tensor calculus. The material presented is developed at a slow pace with a detailed explanation of the many tensor operations. The first half of the text concludes with an introduction to the application of tensor concepts to differential geometry and relativity. The second half of the text presents applications of tensors to areas from continuum mechanics. Tensor calculus is applied to the areas of dynamics, elasticity, fluids, electricity and magnetism. Many of the basic equations from physics, engineering and science are developed which makes the text an excellent reference work. The second half of the text concludes with an introduction to quaternions, multivectors and Clifford algebra. There are four Appendices. The Appendix A contains units of measurements from the Système International d'Unitès along with some selected physical con stants. The Appendix B contains a listing of Christoffel symbols of the second kind associated with various coordinate systems. The Appendix C is a summary of use ful vector identities. The Appendix D contains solutions to selected exercises. The text has numerous illustrative worked examples and over 450 exercises. About the AuthorDr. John H. Heinbockel is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics and Statistics from Old Dominion Univer sity, Norfolk, Virginia. He received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from North Carolina State University in 1964. He joined Old Dominion University in 1967 and since then has taught a variety of mathematics courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. He has had numerous research grants during this time and is the author/co-author of numerous technical papers in the areas of applied mathematics. Presently, he is doing research for NASA involving radiation analysis associ ated with various space programs. ## Related Free eBooks- Introduction to Continuum Mechanics for Engineers
