CEVE 519 - ELASTICITY/PLASTICITY/DAMAGE
Long Title: ELASTICITY, PLASTICITY AND DAMAGE MECHANICS
Department: Civil & Environmental Engr
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Lecture/Laboratory
Credit Hours: 3
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Description: An overview of phenomena that determine the response of solids to deformation and loading: elasticity, plasticity, damage mechanics and cracking. Review of continuum mechanics with emphasis on the physical mechanisms of deformation and fracture. Classification of the behavior of solids. Modeling of different types of material behavior. The physics underlying the phenomena and methods for the numerical analysis of the resulting equations are discussed. Cross-list: MECH 519.
