This course in advanced mate¬rial mechanics aims at the understanding and computational use of materials that are elastically anisotropic, flow plastically or show creep behaviour. After the course the students will be able to:
  • handle multiaxial stress and deformation states and understand how they are represented in Cartesian and polar reference systems,
  • understand and apply elastically anisotropic material properties and understand the principles of the mechanics of composite mechanics,
  • understand time-independent elastoplastic and time-dependent creep material behaviour and perform simple manual elastoplastic analyses in a ‚?~conceptual-design‚?T context, and
  • perform elastoplastic and creep analyses in a modern FEM environment and understand the particular computational implications and difficulties inherent in such analyses.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Multivariable analysis, fundamental solid mechanics (including FEM analysis) and fundamental materials technology. Deformation and fracture behaviour of materials (material and computational aspects), introduction to computational mechanics.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Lectures, teaching classes, FEM laboratory work (computational assignments)
