This book discusses about the mechanics of solids, statics, the strength of materials, and elasticity theory. Solid mechanics is fundamental for civil, aerospace, nuclear, and mechanical engineering, for geology, and for many branches of physics such as materials science. It has specific applications in many other areas, such as understanding the anatomy of living beings, and the design of dental prostheses and surgical implants. Solid mechanics extensively uses tensors to describe stresses, strains, and the relationship between them.
