ME 6220:Advanced Solid Mechanics

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: ENGR 6120  
This course focuses on Cartesian tensors, state of stress, kinematics of deformation, and the general principles of solid mechanics. Topics include constitutive equations of elasticity, viscoelasticity, and plasticity (continuum mechanics), with an emphasis on the design criteria based on variable and fluctuating loads (fatigue) and the failure of components based on crack propagation (fracture mechanics). Applications of linear elastic fracture, propagation fatigue life prediction, toughness, and strain energy release rate will be studied.
