Item description for The Non-Linear Field Theories of Mechanics by C. Truesdell, Walter Noll, W. Noll, Stuart S. Antman & Stuart S. Antman...
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
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 bible of rational nonlilnear continuum mechanics Nov 14, 1998
If you read no other book on continuum mechanics, read this. The only other book you need read is The Classical Field Theories by Truesdell & Toupin. One must expend effort in reading The Non-linear Field Theories, but one is rewarded with keen insights and the ability to achieve and understand new results.
The bible of continuum mechanics! Oct 28, 1996
The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics is THE most
comprehensive book on continuum mechanics to date.
The multitude of books that have been written on continuum
mechanics since the publication of this book (almost forty
years ago) derive both their content and inspiration from
this book. The Nonlinear Field Theories of Mechanics is an
invaluable reference, and any serious researcher in
continuum mechanics ought to have a copy of this book.
