from reviews of the first edition "This book is a comprehensive treatise... with a significant application to structural mechanics_ the author has provided sufficient applications of the theoretical principles_ such a connection between theory and application is a common theme and quite an attractive feature._ The book is a unique volume which contains information not easily found throughout the related literature." _ APPL. MECH. REV. This text, suitable for courses on fluid and solid mechanics, continuum mechanics, and strength of materials, offers a unified presentation of the theories and practical principles common to all branches of solid and fluid mechanics. For the student, each chapter proceeds from basic material to advanced topics usually covered at the graduate level. The presentation is self -contained, the only prerequisites are the basic algebra and analysis that are usually taught in the first and second years of an undergraduate engineering curriculum. Extensive problem sets, new in this edition, make the text more useful than before. For the practicing engineer, Mechanics of Solids and Fluids provides an up-to-date synopsis of the principles of solid and fluid mechanics combined with illustrative examples. The conservation laws for mass, momentum and energy are considered for both material and control volumes. The discussion of elastostatics includes thermal stress analysis and is extended to linear viscoelasticity by means of the correspondence principle. The Ritz-
