Module description

Module Summary

This course will introduce students to linear elasticity mechanics, theory and methods for problem solving and simulation. It will emphasize topics including: kinematics, stress and strain, linear elasticity, viscoelasticity, and biomaterials.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the course, the students will be able:

  • To demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental concepts underpinning continuum mechanics and the principles of conservation laws;
  • To demonstrate a broad understanding of the major topics in solid mechanics, and the key assumptions underlying various frameworks;
  • To demonstrate a systematic understanding of the theory of linear elasticity / viscoelasticity and to apply it in practical problem solving;
  • To achieve a basic understanding of common biological constitutive behaviours and to possess the necessary knowledge to understand more complex materials responses.
