Course Objective

This course is designed to teach carefully selected advanced topics in mechanics of materials. The objective of the course is to broaden the horizons of the students in the field of mechanics of materials. The course also aims at creation of an environment in which the students are encouraged to participate in the development of solution algorithms of various problems and, in this way, to improve the problem solving skills of the students.

Course Content

Analysis of stress in 3D. Strains and stress-strain relations in 3D. Mechanical behavior of materials. Failure theories. Beams on elastic foundations. Elastic stability of axially loaded members. Solution techniques by energy and finite difference approaches.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course unit, the students will be furbished with comprehensive knowledge and problem solving skills in a wider field of mechanics of materials.
