## Stress and Strain: Basic Concepts of Continuum Mechanics for Geologists

Fri, 2007-10-26 11:35 - Eric KiserThis 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.

## ES 240 - Sun Min Jung Q15

Wed, 2007-10-24 20:51 - Sun Min JungIf I were to recommend one textbook that will help students in this course it would obviously be the "Theory of Elasticity" by Timoshenko and Goodier. But you could have found that out by simply looking at the course syllabus, so I will also recommend the following books that are helpful in other areas of the course: "Mathematical Phyiscs" by Kusse and Westwig, "Mechanics of Materials" by Beer and Johnson, and "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" by Greenberg.

## Deformable Bodies and Their Material Behavior by HW Haslach and RW Armstrong

Wed, 2007-10-24 14:01 - Nathan ThielenDeformable Bodies and Their Material Behavior by HW Haslach and RW Armstrong is a great reference book for solid mechanics. This text discusses a wide variety of materials, the relationships between applied stresses, displacements and material properties, the mathematical approximations to predict mechanical behaviors, and the practical uses for the theory. The text helps to understand how the theory can be applied to practical problems. The text has many worked examples to common problems.

## Stress and Deformation: A handbook on tensors in geology by Gerard Oertel

Tue, 2007-10-16 14:07 - AlisonForsythDespite the title, the book covers very little specifically on geology. It works through stress, strain, and other tensor quantities, but assumes you know little about the math. Fully worked problems make up the bulk of the book following a few introcutory chapters. I've found it a nice review of the math, but haven't fully explored the solution sections. I got the book from Cabot Science Library here at Harvard. I wouldn't recommend buying it on amazon it's not worth the $72, but it is a nice addition to Timoshenko's theory of elasticity.

## ES 240 student fall 2007

Thu, 2007-10-11 20:38 - mingguoMy undergraduate and master major is engineer mechanics. I have took several courses about this field, like theory of elasticity and mechanics of materials. But my major during master degree is plant bio-mechanics, especially the role of water surface tension and water transport. So I deeply feel that I need to learn solid mechanics again. That is why I choose this course.
