The
objective of this course is to reinforce the concepts developed in the course
MAE 131B (Solid Mechanics II) and to extend these concepts to tri-dimensional
stress and strain. The solution of plane
stress or plane strain elasticity problems can be reached by use of the
potential function, and important cases will be treated:

*Stresses
around circular and elliptical holes

*Contact
stresses

*Stress
distribution near a concentrated external load

The
limits of elasticity in complex loading situations are determined by the yield
criteria (if the material is ductile) and failure critical (if the material is
brittle). The principal criteria will be
introduced and discussed.

The indicial notation, in which a 3 x 3 matrix of stresses and stains is
represented by _{} and _{} respectively, is
discussed.

The grades
will be based on exams, homework, and reports.
They will count as follows:

First
Exam 25%

Second
Exam 25%

Final
Exam 25%

Homework 25%

Homework will be assigned on Tuesdays and will be due the next Tuesday (at the beginning of the class). NO LATE HOMEWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED. The homework should be neat and written on yellow engineering paper. The total value will be of 25 pct. Grading will be done on a statistical basis from results obtained by the class.

Thus,
students are strongly encouraged to work diligently on their homework. Make-up exams will only be given if the
student presents a medical certificate.
