A first course in rational continuum mechanics by C Truesdell ( Book )
47 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Providing an introduction to the modern mechanics of continua, this book discusses such topics as matters of foundation following the line of thought of Walter Noll and his school, and the new concept of andquot;universe of shapesandquot;. The emphasis is on application and numerous exercises are featured
The rational spirit in modern continuum mechanics essays and papers dedicated to the memory of Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III by Chi-Sing Man ( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through his voluminous and influential writings, editorial activities, organizational leadership, intellectual acumen, and strong sense of history, Clifford A. Truesdell (1919-2000) was the main architect for the renaissance of rational continuum mechanics since the middle of the 20th century. This collection of 42 essays and research papers pays tribute to this man of mathematics, science, and natural philosophy as well as to his legacy. There are essays of personal reminiscences (including contributions from J. Serrin, W. Noll, and B.D. Coleman among others), as are papers at the forefronts of research in rational continuum mechanics and its applications to materials science and structural mechanics. With historical photographs, a curriculum vitae and a complete list of publications of Clifford Truesdell, this collection will be of lasting value to applied mathematicians, research scientists and engineers, and historians of science who are interested in the past and current status of the modern rationalist movement in continuum mechanics

The non-linear field theories of mechanics by C Truesdell ( Book )
27 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Non-Linear Field Theories of Mechanics has become a classic treatise in the field of continuum mechanics. Originally published nearly forty years ago, it probably has influenced practically all subsequent monographs on the subject. Its main parts are: - The General Theory of Material Behavior - Elasticity - Fluidity This third edition includes the corrections made by the late C. Truesdell in his personal copy. It is annotated by W. Noll and by S. Antman who describe the monograph's genesis and the impact it has made on the modern development of mechanics. Originally published as Volume III/3 of the famous Encyclopedia of Physics in 1965, this book describes and summarizes "everything that was both known and worth knowing in the field at the time." It also greatly contributed to the unification and standardization of the concepts, terms and notations in the field
The concepts and logic of classical thermodynamics as a theory of heat engines, rigorously constructed upon the foundation laid by S. Carnot and F. Reech by C Truesdell ( Book )
16 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in English and German and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The consequences of the existence of a thermal equation of state, the eighteenth century doctrine of latent and specific heats, and Carnot's general axiom are developed here completely and rigorously. The book has conceptual, historical, and pedagogical aims: for those already expert in thermodynamics, it is shown how the traditional theory can be developed, using simple mathematics alone, from natural assumptions about heat engines. The features common to the thermodynamics of Carnot and to Clausius are revealed, and the irreconcilable differences discerned. A clean elementary thermodynamics suitable for beginners is presented: anyone proficient in calculus and with a fair grasp of high-school physics of heat will be able to understand the book fully
