If so, start there with Taylor imo. OldEngr63 Gold Member. As fellow by the name of Morris Stern was working on such a book quite few years ago.
I do not know if it was ever completed or not. Might try a search on that name. I took such a course from him many years ago. Folks, thank you all for your input.

Some of the suggestions pointed me to some very large volume of classical mechanics as part of the theoretic physics curriculum, which is not what I'm looking for. I agree reading such materials would give me a solid foundation, but that's going to take at least months of devoted study. I'm a working professional. I'm mostly interested in solving the mechanical wave acoustic and elastic equations in continuous media, just like classical EM waves. Taylor's book has a chapter on it but it's the last one, and probably will be dependent on the previous chapters.
An ideal book I'm looking for would start with some tensor analysis, followed by basic mechanical equations in media and derive some wave equations and then discussion their solutions. It should be self-contained, assuming no experience with Hamiltonian and Lagrangian mechanics.
Simply speaking, I have more experience with EM waves and I wonder if there's an approach to mechanical waves similar to that. Something similar to Griffiths EM book. Does such a book exist at all? Please forgive me for being ignorant about this field, which I really am.

You're going to need that background if you want to be able to work with these things im afraid. And, you'd be surprised where they turn up. Thank you very much for your advices. No problem buddy, good luck! Andy Resnick Science Advisor.

Classical Books with exercises on Classical Mechanics Introductory. Posted Jan 3, The credits are awarded if the module examination is successfully passed. The module examination consists of a non-graded assignment 60 hours and a written examination 90 min.
Remark: At the Department of Civil Engineering we run two different systems of grading. Most modules are completed by an oral or written exam or a graded essay, paper, or thesis and these will be graded on a scale from excellent 1. This is then the grade of the module.
However, this module will be completed first by a non-graded assignment graded only passed or failed, and second by a written examination graded on a scale from 1. The grade for the module is the weighted arithmetic average of the module examinations. The assignment has a weight of 1 and the written examination has a weight of 2.
Remark: If the assignment is passed the grade of the written examination is the grade of the module. The assignment has not further influence on the final grade of the module.

If the assignment is failed the grade for the assignment is 5 and the grade of the module is calculated from the weighted arithmetic average see table below. Skip to main navigation. Skip to secondary navigation.
