Mechanics at micro & nanoscale Université Grenoble Alpes
Goal: Mechanics plays a forefront role at the nanoscale, from the generation of nano-structures by growth instabilities to the properties of nano-composite materials, the design of micro and nano-mechanical devices, the nano-imaging techniques, the control of biologic functions. This course introduces the mechanics of continuous media and its main applications to nanosciences and nano-technologies. Content: - Simple deformations, definition of elastic modulii E, G, K, nu - Flexion of beams, static, dynamics and waves. Example: the AFM cantilever. - 3D linear elasticity of isotropic media: strain tensor ; elasticity as a field theory (expression of the free energy) ; stress tensor ; general equilibrium equation - elastic instabilities in thin films - elasticity of membranes, ADN coil.
