The course represents a brief introduction to the elasticity and strength of materials namely for the specialization Physics and Technology of Nuclear Fusion. General explication of the stress, strain and mechanical properties is elaborated for elastic tension, bending, shear and torsion of bars and beams.

Other classical problems (plane stress and strain, plates, shells) are explained only very briefly. The course contains also basic information about effect of plastic strains, creep, notches and cracks, and about a static and fatigue fracture.


Physics - mechanics. Mathematical analysis.
