In this course, we discuss how to mathematically describe the distortion that solids and fluids undergo. We cover important topics such as (i) deformation of curves, surfaces and volumes; (ii) measures of strain; (iii) polar decomposition and (iv) rate of deformation. On completing this course, we will have a better understanding of the kinematics that underlies continuum mechanics.

This course was created for Ansys Innovation Courses by Professor Krishna Garikipati and Dr. Gregory Teichert, University of Michigan, in partnership with Ansys.

In this course, balance laws will be discussed, including the balance of mass, momentum, and energy. The balance of mass can be associated with diffusion. The balance of linear momentum is associated with Newton’s laws of motion, and the balance of angular momentum is associated with Euler’s equation. The balance of energy gives rise to the heat equation.

In this session, the balance of mechanical energy will be explored along with differing measures of stress.  We will then delve into the work conjugate relations.

We have learned that constitutive laws/relations are important for the study of continuum mechanics. In this course, the focus will be on how the behavior of a material can be captured by using constitutive relations.
