This textbook by Lautrup (Niels Bohr Institute
The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the Niels Bohr Institute for Astronomy, Physics and Geophysics of the University of Copenhagen. , U. of Copenhagen, Denmark) introduces the basic ideas and the derivation of the equations of continuum mechanics from Newtonian particle mechanics and is designed to be of use in a one-semester course on continuum physics for students of physics, especially geophysics and astrophysics, fields from which most of its examples are drawn. The mathematical materials are introduced on a "need-to-know" basis over the course of 32 modular chapters. Following introductory chapters on continuous matter, space and time, and gravity, Lautrup presents sections covering fluids at rest; deformable solids; basic hydrodynamics hydrodynamics: see mechanics.
The study of fluids in motion. The study is based upon the physical conservation laws of mass, momentum, and energy. ; and such special topics as reaction forces and moments, surfaces waves, jumps and shocks, whirls and vortices vor·ti·ces
A plural of vortex. , lubrication lubrication, introduction of a substance between the contact surfaces of moving parts to reduce friction and to dissipate heat. A lubricant may be oil, grease, graphite, or any substance—gas, liquid, semisolid, or solid—that permits free action of , boundary layers, subsonic flight, heat, convection, and turbulence. Answers to problems are provided at the end of the text. Distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis.
