ENGR I4200 Continuum Mechanics

Continuum kinematics, formulation of physical principles in the continuum context, the formulation of constitutive equations, the theories of elastic solids, viscous fluids and viscoelastic solids. At the end of the course there will be an emphasis on either deformable porous media or finite deformation elasticity, depending on student interest.


Basic undergraduate courses in Mechanics of Materials, Fluid Mechanics and Linear Algebra (including vector field theory).
