Continuum mechanics is the basis for a vast array of problems in modern and classical engineering.  The focus of this course is the development of the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and thermodynamics which will allow for description of complex phenomena in solids, fluids, and mixtures (solid-fluid) and quickly take us to modern and exciting topics of coupled problems in multiphysics problems in solids as well mechanics of soft and biological materials.  Most natural phenomena are nonlinear, so the main aim of this course is the development of an adequate framework to model nonlinear phenomena in solids. The models that will be developed to capture physcial phenomena, can be solved analytically or numerically; towards the latter, a connection of the proposed modeling with the Finite Element Method in the context of multiphysical modeling will be covered.  

When Offered Spring.
