Deformation and Failure of Materials
- Department of Mechanics
The course focuses at systematic description of nonlinear mechanical behavior of homogeneous and heterogeneous materials: Formulation of constitutive equations of fundamental material models (elastoplastic, viscoelastic, progressive damage). Mathematical models of heterogeneous materials (fundamentals of mesomechanics). Fundamentals of linear fracture mechanics (stress intensity factor, energetic criterion of local crack stability, other criteria). Fundamentals of nonlinear fracture mechanics (crack with localized plastic zone, cohesive crack model, size effect). Fundamentals of the theory of fatigue processes.
