Tensors

These notes may serve as a reminder of tensor algebra.  The notes supplement the course on advanced elasticity.  Several books are listed at the end of the notes.

Update on 17 April.  I am now breaking up the notes on tensors, cleaning them up, and posting them as sections on linear algebra.

Elasticity of rubber-like materials

In the notes on the general theory of finite deformation, we have left the free energy function unspecified. The notes here describe free energy function commonly used to describe the elasticity of rubber-like materials.  These notes are part of a course on advanced elasticity

Finite Deformation: Special Cases

The notes on finite deformation have been divided into two parts: special cases and general theory (node/538). In class I start with special cases, and then sketch the general theory. But the two parts can be read in any order.

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.

This page is updated for ES 241 taught in Fall 2017 (See also Google doc for lecture-by-lecture record and homework)
