Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to refine my continuum mechanics, which I learnt as an enginner.

I need to get a better undertstanding of the differences between upper and lowerc onvected derivative, and Jaumann derivative, as well as Lie derivative. I am not far, hopefully, from having gained a decent operational understanding but I would really benefit from some simple, heuristic, explanations. I am wondering if anybody could advise a text with a non exessive technical exposition. Can alternatively anybody diret me to simple examples allowing me to capture the essence of the matter? Many thanks
