Course schedule

Introduction to Continuum Mechanics:

This course is an introduction to continuum mechanics and Finite
Element Analyses tools, for future engineers that require fundamental
and applied knowledge in solid and fluid mechanics. It exposes the
student to modeling hypothesis of matter as a continuum, general
conservation laws and constitutive equations.

-
Continuum Mechanics, motivation, hypothesis and objectives.

-
Kinematics – Displacement and definition of Deformation measures

-
Balance laws Mass, Linear momentum, angular momentum, First principle
of thermodynamics – Forces and Stress

-
Constitutive Relations

FINITE ELEMENT THEORY AND APPLICATION

-
Introduction to Finite element approach

-
Construction of stiffness matrix (truss and beam elements)

-
Assembly of elementary matrix and introduction of boundary conditions

-
Variational approach

-
Applications on industrial code: Abaqus

Course type

Lectures: 20h (14h YC, 6 YL), tutorials, labs (15h YL).
