120 credits. 15 credits mathematics. Computational Material Mechanics I. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
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.
