16.225 Computational Mechanics of Materials

Class Info

Formulation of numerical (finite element) methods for the analysis of the nonlinear continuum response of materials. The range of material behavior considered includes finite deformation elasticity and inelasticity. Numerical formulation and algorithms include variational formulation and variational constitutive updates; finite element discretization; constrained problems; time discretization and convergence analysis. Strong emphasis on the (parallel) computer implementation of algorithms in programming assignments. The application to real engineering applications and problems in engineering science are stressed throughout. Experience in either C++, C, or Fortran required.

This class has no prerequisites.

16.225 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by R. Radovitzky.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 33-116.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
