Catalog Card Number: 67-17337

Book cover slightly worn. Contains a library pocket. Pages are in great condition.

"Students of engineering, applied mathematics, and physics are usually exposed in differing doses to instructions in various branches of classical continuum mechanics. A sound training in this field is often planned by subjecting the learner to several courses in fluid and solid mechanics both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Hopefully, at the end, the student recognized the common ground upon which are built the diverse fields of continuum mechanics.  This book was planned to bring efficiency to this process by exposing students in the latter part of their undergraduate training to a unified approach, one that emphasized the basic principles continuum mechanics and the central role these principles play in the formulation of the fundamental equations of elasticity, fluid dynamics, heat conduction, thermo-elasticity, and viscoelastic materials. The students can then take some corses of specialization to learn the mathematical methods for solving more sophisticated boundary value problems..."

About the Author
Ahmet Cemal Eringen
Ahmet Cemal Eringen  (February 15, 1921, in Kayseri , Turkey – December 7, 2009) was a Turkish- American engineering scientist. He was a professor at Princeton University and the founder of the Society of Engineering Science.  The Eringen Medal is named in his honor. 

Eringen studied at the Technical University of Istanbul and graduated with a diploma degree in 1943 and then worked for the Turkish Aircraft Co. until 1944. In 1944/45, he was a trainee at the Glenn L. Martin Company and in 1945 was group leader at the Turkish Air League Company. He continued his studies at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in New York City where he received his doctorate in applied mechanics in 1948 under the supervision of Nicholas J. Hoff. 

He became assistant professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1948, associate professor in 1953 and professor in 1955 at Purdue University . He was appointed as professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at Princeton University in 1966. He became professor of continuum mechanics in the departments of civil and geological engineering and the program in applied and computational mathematics at Princeton University. He retired in 1991 as the dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University and died in 2009.
