I am teaching this course this semester.  I'll post notes as I write them.  Links to the notes are listed in this post.  I will also notify updates on twitter:

Explicit Dynamics with ANSYS LS-DYNA training course

This training course covers the ANSYS LS-DYNA Interface, which seamlessly links the ANSYTS traditional environment pre- and post-processing software with the LS-DYNA explicit solver to conduct highly nonlinear, transient dynamic analyses. Sequential solutions are also discussed, in which the ANSYS implicit solver is used in conjunction with the LS-DYNA explicit solver to extend the range of applications.

Empirical observations of temperature

I have divided the old notes on temperature into three parts:

Our feeling of hotness comes from everyday experiences. These experiences indicate that many levels of hotness exist, and that all levels of hotness can be mapped to a real variable.

Free Energy

For a system in thermal contact with the rest of the world, we have described three quantities: entropy, energy, and temperature. We have also described the idea of a constraint internal to the system, and associated this constraint to an internal variable.

Lecture notes on "Elasticity" and "Statistical Mechanics"

The lecture notes of the two courses I taught at Stanford University during the last two quarters, "ME 340 Elasticity" and "ME 334 Introduction to Statistical Mechanics", are available in PDF format online at:

Perhaps it could be useful to you.
