Continuum mechanics

ME-201

Enseignant(s) :

Kolinski John Martin

Langue:

English

Summary

The student acquires the basic operations of indicial notation, orthogonal transformation, Cartesian tensors; various deformation and stress tensors; conservation laws; constitutive equations for simple fluids and solids with examples on Newtonian fluids and linear elastic solids.

Content

The course elaborates on the generalization of rational mechanics to the continuum mechanics and deduces the conservation laws as well as the materials constitutive behaviour. The main chapters of the course cover the following points: cartesian tensors, kinematics and dynamics of continuous media, energy, constitutive laws, applications to solids and fluids.
