TU Bergakademie Freiberg | Sommersemester 2021 Continuum Mechanics

Continuum Mechanics

In this course, the mathematical foundations of continuum solid mechanics are elaborated. This includes the classical theoretical approaches that describe the kinematics, kinetics and constitutive behavior of three-dimensional continua at small and large deformations as well as the governing balance laws.

The most important ingredients are:

  • tensor algebra and analysis
  • balance laws (mass, momentum, energy, entropy)
  • thermodynamic consistency
  • spatial and material descriptions
  • kinematics of continua at finite deformations
  • definition of various stress measures
  • constitutive theory
