Continuum Mechanics 7,5 Credits

Course Contents

Continuum mechanics is a branch of mechanics that deals with the mechanical behavior of materials modeled as a continuous mass rather than discrete particles. The framework for this type of modeling, typical models and the study of phenomena in deformation of materials is studied and implemented for solving numerically. This knowledge is important when predicting and optimizing product behaviors.

The course includes the following elements:
• Thermodynamic framework for material modeling
• Viscoelasticity models, like Maxwell, Kelvin-Voigt and Standard linear solid model, for studying phenomenon like creep, relaxation and damping
• Plasticity and viscoplasticity models, with (and without) hardening and damage, for studying behavior of metals as well as non-metallic materials
• Introduction to using material models in a FE-code like ABAQUS
• Implementing and running material models in commercials codes like Matlab and ABAQUS
