SCHEDULING NOTE: This class will meet ONLY on Thursdays from 3:40 PM to 6:10 PM.

Mathematical preliminaries on vector and tensor algebra and calculus. Continuum mechanical description of deformable solids: concepts of deformations, strains, stress, energy, and how these connect together. Linear elastic constitutive laws. Formulations and solution procedures for boundary value problems in linear elasticity. Plane stress/strain, bending, and selection of 2D and 3D problems.

I will frequently recommend preparatory and/or follow-up reading to supplement lectures. These readings will be an important tool to aid in-class learning.
