16.225[J] 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[J] will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by R. Radovitzky.

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