This publication introduces box conception as required in reliable and fluid mechanics in addition to in electromagnetism. It contains the mandatory utilized mathematical framework of tensor algebra and tensor calculus, utilizing an inductive technique relatively fitted to novices. it's aimed at undergraduate sessions in continuum idea for engineers typically, and extra in particular to classes in continuum mechanics. scholars will achieve a valid easy knowing of the topic in addition to the power to resolve engineering difficulties through using the final legislation of nature when it comes to the balances for mass, momentum, and effort together with material-specific relatives by way of constitutive equations, therefore studying easy methods to use the speculation in perform for themselves. this can be facilitated via a variety of examples and difficulties supplied through the text.

The local curvature in a point x. This explains the second derivatives in Eq. 8). Moreover, a plane surface is, of course, not curved. Therefore we 44 2 Coordinate Transformations expect that the curvature tensor vanishes. And, indeed, the scalar product (note the summation implied by the index i) in Eq. 8) or, in other words the projection of the curvature onto the normal vector, becomes zero in this case. Moreover, note that by virtue of Eq. 3) we may write for the curvature in Eq. 8) as well: o2 x i osia o2 x i osia osia ei osa ¼ ) e ¼ e  ¼ b: i i oza ozb ozb oza ozb ozb ozb oz ð2:7:9Þ Note that because of their constancy the Cartesian unit vectors ei are not affected by partial differentiation.

This is known as EINSTEIN’s summation rule in the literature. , those that do not appear twice (in the present case the letter ‘‘i’’). The infinitesimal distance ds between the two infinitesimally close points (1) and (2) can now be calculated if we insert Eqs. 2): rffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi pffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi oxi oxi k j ds ¼ dxi dxi ¼ ð2:2:7Þ dz dz : ozk oz j Albert EINSTEIN was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm (South Germany) and died on April 18th, 1955 in Princeton. He is certainly the most eminent scientist of the twentieth century.

Well, almost, since Eq. t. the curvilinear coordinates zk. These derivatives have a special name. They are known as the (covariant) components of the metric tensor g and defined as follows: gkj ¼ oxi oxi : ozk oz j ð2:2:8Þ The word metric stems from the Greek word lesqx9 for measuring. , Eq. 7), provided the differences of coordinates dzk are known. We now rewrite Eq. 7) in the following compact form: qffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi ð2:2:9Þ ds ¼ gkj dzk dz j : Note that in order to determine gkj for a particular coordinate transformation it is sufficient to determine only ‘‘half of it,’’ for example, for the sequence of indices (k, j) = (1,1), (1,2), (1,3), (2,2), (2,3), (3,3).
