MECH.5620 Solid Mechanics I (Formerly 22.562)

Id: 003901 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


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.
