Students will gain knowledge on the mechanical properties and constitutive models of engineering materials along with the associated computing techniques. Topics covered will involve advanced-level content related to elasticity (including anisotropy), viscoelasticity (using a Voigt model or Prony Series), plasticity (using Druker-Prager) and fracture mechanics (J-Intergral) of a wide range of engineering materials (including polymers, composites, metals & ceramics). Students will interpret experimental data (such as stress-strain curves) to determine the correct constitutive model for the observed mechanical properties of the materials. The module will focus on the link between material properties and structure and will provide underpinning knowledge to allow successful modelling using finite element analysis package of a wide range of engineering applications.
