One of the oddities of contemporary physics education is the nearly complete absence of continuum mechanics in the typical undergraduate or graduate curriculum.
Continuum mechanics refers to field descriptions of mechanical phenomena, which are usually modeled by partial differential equations.
With exposure to the continuum way of thinking about mechanical phenomena, students would have access to many physical aspects of nature: laboratory and geophysical fluid dynamics, the dynamics of deformable materials, part of the growing fields of soft condensed matter physics and complex fluids, and much more.

 ENGnetBASE: Engineering Handbooks Online
The second edition of this popular text continues to provide a solid, fundamental introduction to the mathematics, laws, and applications of continuum mechanics.
Beginning with the basic mathematical tools needed-including matrix methods and the algebra and calculus of Cartesian tensors-the authors develop the principles of stress, strain, and motion and derive the fundamental physical laws relating to continuity, energy, and momentum.
Mastering the contents of Continuum Mechanics: Second Edition provides the reader with the foundation necessary to be a skilled user of today's advanced design tools, such as sophisticated simulation programs that use nonlinear kinematics and a variety of constitutive relationships.

Mechanics -- Mechanics can be seen as the prime, and even as the original, discipline of physics.
Fluid mechanics -- Fluid mechanics is the subdiscipline of continuum mechanics that studies fluids, that is, liquids and gases.
There is an ill-concealed skeleton in the closet of physics: "As they are currently formulated, general relativity and quantum mechanics cannot both be right." Each is exceedingly accurate in its...

 Introduction to Continuum Mechanics (3rd Edition)
Mechanics & Mechanical Engineering / General References /
Continuum mechanics studies the response of materials to different loading conditions.
The concept of tensors is introduced through the idea of linear transformation in a self-contained chapter, and the interrelation of direct notation, indicial notation, and matrix operations is clearly presented.

 General Continuum Mechanics - Cambridge University Press
In this book, a new approach is pioneered in providing a unified theory in continuum mechanics.
General Continuum Mechanics is intended for the beginner, but it develops advanced material covering interdisciplinary subjects.
With applications of convective, Lagrangian, and Eulerian coordinates and the first and second laws of thermodynamics, the first-year graduate student will learn solid mechanics and fluid mechanics as an integrated subject.

 AIAA - Book - Elements of Continuum Mechanics
As the ever-growing capabilities of numerical tools are being used to simulate how fluids and solids respond to high temperatures and severe loads, a fundamental understanding of the theory of large coupled thermo-mechanical deformations will play an ever-increasing role.
After briefly reviewing the mathematical preliminaries in Chapter 2, the theory of large deformations of a continuum is developed in subsequent chapters.

 Continuum Mechanics
The department has an active and thriving group of applied mathematicians that considers various aspects of acoustic, elastic, electro-magnetic, and water wave propagation phenomena.
In water waves we consider violent free-surface deformations due to water entry/exit and wave impact on marine structures.
Thin shell theory, in addition to the applications in mechanical, aerospace, naval and civil engineering, has more recently been found to be useful for the design and non-destructive testing of nanostructures, thin coatings and interfaces, micromechanical electronic systems, and biomedicine.
