Adv Mechanics of Solid Materia



This course presents the physical laws, mathematical methods, and computer algorithms that are used to predict the response of materials and structures to mechanical and/or thermal loading. Topics include: Fundamentals of solid mechanics. Review of Cartesian Tensors. Two and Three Dimensional Theories of Stress and Strain (Method of Continuum Mechanics, Theory of Elasticity). Isotropic and anisotropic linear elasticity and isotropic linear thermo-elasticity. Boundary value problems for linear elastic solids. Variational and energy methods. Linear Finite Element Analysis. Small-strain plasticity theory. Failure modes and failure theories for solids.
