Theory of Elasticity


This fundamental course provides students with the mathematical tools required to formulate and analyze the state of stress/strain in a deformable body. In particular, we discuss the following topics: basics of tensor calculus, field equations (strain-displacement, compatibility, equilibrium, and constitutive relation), solution of plane elastostatics problems in Cartesian and polar coordinates, potential function formulation, introduction to 3D problems.
