Aim and Content
Derivation of the fundamental equations in continuum mechanics with special emphasis on the equations of fluids and gases.
After completed course, the students are expected to be able to:
- Explain central terms as material volume, particle and deformation tensor
- Explain the difference between Eulerian and Lagrangian definition of the equations of motion
- Derive conservation laws for mass, momentum, and energy on local and global form
- Define the stress tensor and derive it for ideal and Newtonian fluids
- Give models for simple motion in ideal and viscous fluids and analyze these
- Explain the model of linear elasticity
