3.032 Mechanical Behavior of Materials
Basic concepts of solid mechanics and mechanical behavior of materials: elasticity, stress-strain relationships, stress transformation, viscoelasticity, plasticity and fracture. Continuum behavior as well as atomistic explanations of the observed behavior are described. Examples from engineering as well as biomechanics. Lab experiments and demonstrations give hands-on experience of the physical concepts. Offers a combination of online and in-person instruction.
3.032 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by L. Gibson.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
