Over at iMechanica, Pradeep Sharma reviews a textbook on micro- and nano-mechanics:
There are not that many books on this subject. A few classics such as that by Mura are quite useful but Li and Wang’s emphasis on writing a “textbook” rather than a monograph makes it quite attractive for beginning graduate students seeking entry into this area. I particularly enjoyed the biographies of various mechanicians dispersed throughout the book.
Over at iMechanica again, Kewei Li gives a reading list on solid mechanics for students of engineering.
