An Introduction to Mechanics of Solids by Stephen H.
Crandall is based on the understanding and
application of three fundamental physical considerations
which govern the mechanics of solids in equilibrium. All the
discussion and theoretical development is explicitly related
to these three basic considerations. This approach brings in
unity to an elementary presentation of the subject.
Considerable emphasis has been put on the process of
constructing idealized models to represent actual physical
