20S: Arrange

20F: 9L


ENGS 24 and ENGS 33, or equivalent

Classnotes will be distributed at the start of the class.

A study of the mechanical properties of engineering materials and the influence of these properties on the design process. Topics include: tensorial description of stress and strain; elasticity; plastic yielding under multiaxial loading; flow rules for large plastic strains; microscopic basis for plasticity; viscoelastic deformation of polymers; creep; fatigue; and fracture.
