# Spring 2009

## Poroelasticity and diffusion in elastic solids

These are slides of poroelasticity and diffusion in elastic solids for final presentation based on ES241 notes.

## advanced elasticity 2009 slides (polyelectrolyte gels)

These slides are based on an on-going paper written by Wei Hong, Xuanhe Zhao and Zhigang Suo and Suo's talk in ucsb.

## Final presentation

Attached is my final presentation.

## Final presentation slides

Here are the slides for my final presentation for ES 241.  During the presentation, a few suggestions were made, which I plan to follow up on.  Please check back here or subscribe for updates.

## Slides on Pressure and Chemical Potential

Here are some slides I made on the subject of "Pressure and Chemical Potential" for the final meeting of Prof. Zhigang Suo's ES 241 class in the Spring of 2009.

## ES 241 Presentation: Electric Potential / Deformation and Polarization

Please see the attached slides on electric potential, deformation and polarization.

## ES 241 Presentation: Heat Conduction and the Boltzmann Distribution

Please see attachment for ES 241 final presentation on heat conduction and the Boltzmann distribution.

## ES241Presentation: General theory of finite deformation

Please see attachment for ES241 final presentation--general theory of finite deformation

## ES 241 Advanced Elasticity Final Examination

The final exam will take the form of a pedagogical workshop. We have 8 students taking the class for credit. I have divided the lecture notes into 8 parts as follows.

## Chemical potential

Attached are the slides and notes for a course on engineering thermodynamics.

## Pressure

So far we have been mainly concerned with systems of a single independent variable: energy (node/4878). We now consider a system of two independent variables: energy and volume. A thermodynamic model of the system is prescribed by entropy as a function of energy and volume.

The partial derivatives of the function give the temperature and the pressure. This fact leads to an experimental procedure to determine the function for a given system.

The laws of ideal gases and osmosis are derived. The two phenomena illustrate entropic elasticity.

## Engineering Sciences 241: Advanced Elasticity

This is a second graduate course in solid mechanics.  Building on thermodynamics and linear algebra, the course explores coupled mechanical, thermal, electrical, and chemical actions.  The course draws heavily upon phenomena in soft active materials.
