MME 623 Mechanical Behavior of Materials (3)

Mechanics and materials aspects of elastic and inelastic deformation. Basic concepts of stress and strain in 3-D representation. Specific phenomena considered include fracture mechanics, creep behavior, and fatigue of materials. The implications towards the part design will be considered. Principal approaches to metallic and polymer deformation modeling will be introduced.

Prerequisites: MME 412/512 or equivalent or permission of instructor.
