In this course, we first discuss what exactly continuum physics means. Then we revisit vectors and revise concepts such as basic operations of vectors, basis vectors, etc.

This course discusses the mathematical quantities called tensors and, their properties. Tensors and vector fields are discussed as well.

This course starts with a discussion on the motion of continuum bodies — how to describe and analyze the motion. The lectures cover the study of kinematics of motion divided into four subcategories: Motion and Deformation, Lagrangian description, Eulerian description, and Material Derivatives. From basic representation, all the subcategories will be discussed in this course.

In this course, we discuss how to mathematically describe the distortion that solids and fluids undergo. We cover important topics such as (i) deformation of curves, surfaces and volumes; (ii) measures of strain; (iii) polar decomposition and (iv) rate of deformation. On completing this course, we will have a better understanding of the kinematics that underlies continuum mechanics.
