120 hp. 15 hp mathematics. Computational Material Mechanics I. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
- Responsible department: Department of Materials Science and Engineering
On completion of the course the student should be able to:
- distinguish between different linear and non-linear elastic models
- describe and apply the frame-work defining plasticity theories
- appply the types of assumptions and simplifications done in a mathematical description of the material behavior
- implement ordinary plasticity models in finite element programs
- independently write a finite element code that handles nonlinear materials.
The aim of the course is to provide students with knowledge of linear and non-linear material modeling and using finite element methods.
Theory and mathematical descriptions of common models for nonlinear material mechanics is reviewed (eg non-linear elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, fracture mechanics, damage). Numerical methods and implementation of constitutive equations in finite element models is put into practise.
Lectures, lessons, computer exersices.
Hand-in assignments presented in a written report (5 credits).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
Applies from: Autumn 2023
