These lecture notes cover numerous elements of configurational mechanics, including mathematical foundations, linear and nonlinear elasticity and continuum mechanics, coupled fields, fracture mechanics, as well as strength of materials.So-called configuration^ forces , also called material forces in modern continuum mechanics, and more generally energetic driving forces , are those Al forces Ar which are associated by duality to the displacement or motion of whatever may beanbsp;...
