Course Description

This course deals with several constitutive models for materials including linear-elastic, non-linear elastic hyper-elastic, hypo-elastic, variable modulii incremental, elastic-perfectly plastic fracture etc. The course also introduces the finite element formulation for elasto-plastic problems.


  • To expose the student to the several material constitutive models available to predict the structural response of elements subjected to load.
