Hooke's law in tensor form

  1. Dec 9, 2014 #1
    I'm studying physics and currently taking the first mechanics course. After dealing with rotation and gyroscopes, now we're working on things like shear stress, and Hooke's law in tensor form etc.
    I've got Kleppner/Kolenkow but shear stress, Hooke's law in tensor form and tensors in general aren't covered.

    Can anyone recommend me a textbook that is for 1st semester mechanics and covers tensors, shear stress, getting from the modulus of rigidity to the spring constant and strain?

    Thanks in advance!

    Any book with the words "Strength of Materials" in its title should have this at the level that you are looking for.
