Abstract: Abstract: A mechanical structure of space is suggested. On the supposition that a space as vacuum has a physical fine structure like continuum, it enables us to apply a continuum mechanics to the so-called "vacuum" of space. A space is an infinite continuum and its structure is determined by Riemannian geometry. Assuming that space is an infinite continuum, the pressure field derived from the geometrical structure of space is newly obtained by applying both continuum mechanics and General Relativity to space.…
