The project website of the Encyclopedia of Continuum Mechanics can be found HERE.
In this volume, continuum mechanics will be presented focusing on classical theory and new developments. In addition, information on numerical and experimental methods will be provided. It seems that continuum mechanics is a purely phenomenological approach, but one can discuss the problems of continuum mechanics on various scales preserving the fundamentals and applying some modifications only. After all, the common starting point for all branches of continuum mechanics is the continuity assumption.
The state of the art of continuum mechanics is given in thousands of journal papers and various monographs and textbooks. However, with the Encyclopedia the reader will be able to find short articles on continuum mechanics (max. 10 pages) in one single book providing a first insight into the complex structure of continuum mechanics.
