Eiichi TANAKA Professor
Department: School of Engineering / Graduate School of Engineering
|Class Time:||2014 Fall Tuesday|
|Recommended for:||School of Engineering,
Mechanical Engineering 2nd students
In this lecture, we will focus on solid mechanics from a standpoint of continuum mechanics. We first learn the mathematical preliminary used in continuum mechanics such as the concepts of vectors and tensors. Then, we will move on to the concepts of strain and stress. Lastly, we will derive the field equations such as the equation of motion, kinematic relation, and constitutive laws.
I would like all students to understand the material covered in this course smoothly and accurately. Therefore, in this lecture I emphasize the important points by writing on the black board. Also I use microphone and speak slowly in order to make it easier for students to follow the lectures. In the exercise session many problems are given to help them understand.
- To understand the basics of tensor
- To become able to explain the concepts of strain and deformation
Requirements and recommended courses
Mechanics 1 and Strength of Materials 1
It is welcome to answer questions after class. If you would like to ask questions other time, please send e-mail or call my office to set up an appointment.

The grading is based only on the final examination. Those who get over 55 out of 100 on the final exam are given credits for this lecture.
Lecture handouts taken by one of the students are uploaded. It is only available in Japanese.
