MTHE 433 NOT OFFERED 2020-2021 Continuum Mechanics with Applications W | 3

Lecture: 3
Lab: 0
Tutorial: 0
Continuum mechanics lays the foundations for the study of the mechanical behavior of solids and fluids. After a review of vector and tensor analysis, the kinematics of continua are introduced. Emphasis is given to the concepts of stress, strain and deformation. The fundamental laws of conservation of mass, balances of (linear and angular) momentum and energy are presented together with the constitutive models. Applications of these models are given in the theory of linearized elasticity and fluid dynamics.
