Continuum Mechanics II

OVERVIEW

The course Continuum Mechanics II describes material models at small and finite strains.
It advances the topics of the core course Continuum Mechanics I.

CONTENTS

Thermodynamics of a general internal variable formulation of inelasticity, linear and nonlinear elasticity (isotopic spectral forms, anisotropic models based on structural tensors), viscoelasticity (linear and nonlinear models, stress update algorithms and consistent linearization), Rate-independent and rate-dependent plasticity (theoretical formulations, stress update algorithms and local variational formulations, consistent linearization) and damage mechanics.

  • For better understanding of the computational mechanics of materials and structures that will be discussed in "Continuum Mechanics II", an accompanying course "Numerical Implementation of Constitutive Models" is offered for the first time in this semester. This accompanying course is not compulsory but highly recommended.
