Stress and Strain: Basic Concepts of Continuum Mechanics for Geologists

This book begins by describing real life examples of mechanical states of different materials.  The book next discusses stress.  This discussion includes force, mohr circles, tensor components of stress, and stress fields.  Next strain is discussed.  This ranges from measuring deformation to tensor components of infinite and finite strain.  The book concludes by outlining different material behaviors.  These include Hookean behavior and Newtonian behavior.  This last section also discusses energy consumed in deformation.

 This book presents material in the same sequence as it is discussed in class, but with more attention to details.  This helps to fill in the gaps for things that students might miss during the lectures.

 I particularly like this book because it applies the ideas of stress and strain to the stresses and strains that take place in nature.
