CEE 3720 - Intermediate Solid Mechanics

Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 2940 , ENGRD 2020 . Recommended prerequisite: Previous computer programming.

D. H. Warner.

This course introduces students to the mathematical framework of continuum solid mechanics. Topics include:  infinitesimal stresses and strains, coordinate transformations, constitutive relationships, yield criteria, elementary boundary value problems, and introductory fracture mechanics.

Outcome 1: The course is intended to introduce students to the necessary tools for rigorously describing the deformation and failure of solids, and provide the necessary foundation for future courses and practice.
