ME 648 Mechanics of Continuous Media

A basically physical approach to the study of continuum mechanics; Cartesian tensor notation, the concepts of stress, deformation and flow in continuous media; conservation equations and constitutive relations developed and used to establish mathematical models for the deformation of elastic, plastic and viscoelastic solids; the flow of Newtonian, and non-Newtonian fluids.
