Continuum Mechanics by George Backus

The three main sections of the book include: I) an overview of tensors over Euclidean vector spaces (multilinear mappings, definitions of tensors over Euclidean vector spaces, alternating tensors, tensor products, integral calculus of tensors, and integral identities), II) elementary continuum mechanics (Eulerian and Lagrangian description of a continuum, conservation laws in a continuum, strain and deformation, and constitutive relations), and III) exercises.
