Course Description

Basic concepts on continuum mechanics: axioms, tonsorial and indicial forms of strains and stresses. Non-linear behavior. Stress and strain paths. Constitutive models in elasticity, hypo elasticity and quasilinear models. Plasticity: yield criterion, flow rule, incremental equations, isotropic and anisotropic hardening.
