MECHANICAL MODELS OF PHYSICAL FIELDS AND PARTICLES
All or most of physics can be rendered in terms of continuum mechanics
We assume that the space is occupied by a medium. This medium serves in order to carry over electromagnetic waves and to transmit interactions.
Voids, included into the luminiferous medium, correspond to particles of matter.
We show that Maxwell's equations in the Coulomb gauge are isomorphic to a model of an elastic-plastic medium.
Elastic stresses, necessary in order to model the electric field, are realized in a turbulent fluid.
Structural elements of the turbulence in a fluid are vortex filaments. A helical wave spreading along a straight vortex filament obeys the Schroedinger and Klein-Gordon equations.
