Solid Mechanics with Microstructure

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have gained an understanding of basic mechanical properties of engineering materials and modeling procedures used to quantify these properties, as well as the ways in which these properties characterize material response.

Skills

  • Be able to understand basic continuum mechanical theories and apply them to simple structural components.
  • Be able to substantiate different observable deformation modes by underlying physical mechanisms.
  • Be able to document knowledge related to the application of selected analytical/numerical methods for materials characterization.

Competences

  • Have gained an awareness of various responses exhibited by solid engineering materials when subjected to mechanical loadings and an explanation of the physical mechanisms associated with design-limiting behavior of engineering materials.
  • Have gained an understanding of predictive analytical and computational frameworks that provide quantitative skills to deal with materials-limiting problems in engineering design.
