General Mechanics

General or nonrigid body mechanics includes wave mechanics, fluid mechanics, and deformable body mechanics.

   

Wave mechanics

This section includes the study of mechanical waves and their propagation. It includes wave behavior in both deformable bodies and fluids, and in particlar the study of sound, or acoutics.

Fluid mechanics

This includes the study of fluid statics, with hydrodynamics and hydrostatics as special cases, and includes ideal as well as real flow.

Deformable body mechanics

The description of deformable body mechanics is included here. This includes quantities of stress, strain, and elastic and plastic behavior.
