Continuum Mechanics: One Spatial Dimension
In the previous chapter we investigated how to model the spatial motion of objects (cars, molecules, etc.) but omitted the possibility that the objects exert forces on each other. The objective now is to introduce this into the modeling. The situations where this is needed are quite varied and include the deformation of an elastic bar, the stretching of a string, or the flow of air or water.
