Mechanical Behavior: From Fluids to Solids University of Bordeaux
> LEARNING OBJECTIVES ARE TO: - Know and to master the fundamental laws in fluid andsolidmechanics. - Know the vocabulary and formalism associated to fluid andsolidmechanics. - Know and to run the various mechanical testing procedures. - Apprehend the structure /properties relationships for thevariousmaterial classes. - Apprehend the scaling laws and their relationships to thestructuralproperties of materials. - Analyze experimental data as well as model the fluid andmechanicalbehaviors.
- Academic level: B.Sc. in chemistry, physical-chemistry ormaterial science - Selection criteria: basic knowledge in chemistry and/or physicalchemistry. - Selection procedure: evaluation of the student's resume.
-Evaluation of practical sessions = 20% of the overall mark -Written final exam (“hours): 80% of the overall mark -In case of failure, a second session is organized for the final exam(either as a written exam or an oral session depending on the numberof failed students)
Course content includes:1.FLOW, DEFORMATION AND RUPTURE IN MATERIALS: BASICS AND MEASUREMENTS. -Stress– strain – strain rate -Elastic relationships -Fluid relationships -Quasi-statictests -Rheological tests -Time-resolvedtests (relaxation / creep / periodic) -Fatigue testes -Stress-crackingtests2.STRUCTURE/PROPERTY RELATIONSHIPS IN VARIOUS CLASSES OF MATERIALS -Polymers (viscoelasticity / enthalpic and entropic elasticity) -Complex fluids (non-Newtonian / rheology) -Solids (defects, fracture and aging)
