Course content

Tensor analysis in cartesian coordinates. Kinematics. The equations of motion. General stress analysis. General deformation analysis, small and large deformations, the kinematics of deformation. General principles for establishing constitutive equations. Material symmetry. Isotropic and anisotropic material properties. Linear and nonlinear elastic materials. Viscoelasticity. Hyperelasticity. Plasticity.

Learning outcome

The candidates should have knowledge and understanding of the common mathematical foundation to describe the behavior of matter.

Knowledge:
The candidates will understand the various theoretical elements of the continuum mechanics, and how these elements apply to solids and fluids.

Skills:
The candidates will be able to derive and apply the equations of continuum mechanics in the following areas: Stress and strain analysis, deformation, work and energy, theory of elasticity, viscoelasticity, theory of plasticity, fluid mechanics and the basis for the constitutive equations.

General competence:
The candidates will be able to use continuum theory description of his/her work on the thesis. They will also be able to read scientific articles with continuum mechanical formulation within their field.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and homework assignments. The homework assignments are voluntary. The lectures and exercises are in English when students who do not speak Norwegian take the course. To pass the course a score of at least 70 percent is required.

Further on evaluation

For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken
