Highlights of this Course

We present a lecture course of continuum mechanic including fluid mechanics and theory of elasticity, This lecture note starts from the primitive level and covers the topics in the advanced level. It is a self-contained and suitable for study by themselves.

Course Description

This lecture course is dedicated to the continuum mechanics (fluid mechanics and theory of elasticity) which starts from the primitive level of the continuum mechanics (the introduction of stress tensor and continuum equations) and discusses Hertzian contact theory, the elastic waves and solitons, mechanics of perfect fluids and vortex dynamics and its stability with the pedestrian attitude. The lecture has been performed from 2000 to 2002 as “fluid mechanics” of faculty of Integrated Human Studies.
