Continuum Mechanics in the Earth Sciences by William I. Newman PDF

By William I. Newman

Continuum mechanics underlies many geological and geophysical phenomena, from earthquakes and faults to the fluid dynamics of the Earth. This interdisciplinary e-book offers geoscientists, physicists and utilized mathematicians with a class-tested, obtainable evaluation of continuum mechanics. ranging from thermodynamic rules and geometrical insights, the ebook surveys good, fluid and fuel dynamics. In later assessment chapters, it explores new features of the sphere rising from nonlinearity and dynamical complexity and offers a quick advent to computational modeling. easy, but rigorous, derivations are used to study the fundamental arithmetic. the writer emphasizes the entire three-d geometries of real-world examples, allowing scholars to use this in deconstructing strong earth and planet-related difficulties. challenge units and labored examples are supplied, making this a pragmatic source for graduate scholars in geophysics, planetary physics and geology and a priceless software for pro scientists looking a greater figuring out of the math and physics inside Earth sciences.
