UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.
Topics covered include the theory of stress, kinematics of strain, Hooke's Law, work and energy, equations of stress equilibrium, Navier's equations, strain compatibility, and the Beltrami-Michell equations. Problems for uniformly varying 3-D states of stress, torsion, and plane deformation are studied. Axisymmetric deformation is considered. Green's function solutions for plane and axisymmetric problems are studied.
