Description:

In this course the basic tools for the description and measurement of mechanical material behaviour will be presented.

 


Part A, day 1+2:
- Classification of materials (crystalline, amorphous, compounds)
- Intrinsic electromagnetic interactions
- Introduction of a constitutive law
- Stress-strain curves
- Elastic Theory: Hooke's law, Isotropy, Anisotropy, Technical vs. Engineering Constants
- Plastic Deformation: Toughness, Strength
- Viscoelasticity

 

Part B (seminar), day 3:
- Students will solve basic mechanical problems related to research in regenerative therapies
