Fall 2007 ES 240 Final Project "Viscous Deformation of a Fused Quartz Tube" by Sunny Wicks and Stephen SteinerSubmitted by Stephen Steiner on Sat, 2008-01-12 02:19.
Attached is a PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation from our final project, titled "Viscous Deformation of a Quartz Tube Caused by Furnace Malfunction: Analysis and Modeling".
Overview. This post is a description of the project Sunny Wicks and I will be pursuing for this class, to satisfy the requirements for Problem 29.
Outline of Content:
This is a blog entry about my background as it pertains to solid mechanics, written in effort to achieve maximum credit for Problem 6 on the ES 240 assignment due Friday, October 5, 2007.
Prior Courses in Solid Mechanics
My prior experience in solid mechanics is limited to half a semester of graduate "Mechanics of Materials" which I took as a listener at MIT in Spring 2005. As such, much of the material covered in this subject is new to me.
