# 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.
