1.57 Mechanics of Materials: An Energy Approach


Class Info

An opportunity to update knowledge in continuum mechanics and constitutive behavior, and modeling of engineering materials based on thermodynamics of irreversible processes. Introduction to continuum mechanics and material modeling of engineering materials based on first energy principles: deformation and strain; momentum balance, stress, and stress states; elasticity and elasticity bounds; plasticity and yield design. Overarching theme is a unified mechanistic language using thermodynamics, which allows for understanding, modeling, and design of a broad range of engineering materials.

This class has 1.050 as a prerequisite.

1.57 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by F. J. Ulm.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
