•Course Purpose |

Course Purpose
To understand mechanics of deformation, and to acquire basic knowledge about evaluation and analysis of mechanical properties of solids such as Young's modulus and shear modulus. Also to understand the concepts of viscous fluid and ideal fluid as the basis of fluid mechanics. Outcomes 1. The ability to explain the concepts of strain and stress, and to express the concepts according to tensor analysis. 2. The ability to explain deformation of a body under the condition of elastic deformation, and the ability to derive elastic constants in various crystal systems. 3. The ability to derive the Navier-Stokes equations. |
