Textbook: Nano Mechanics and Materials: Theory, Multiscale Methods and Applications
Author: Wing K. Liu, Eduard G. Karpov and Harold S. Park
Objective: This class covers basic mechanics and fracture analysis in continuum approach and extends the theory to micro and nano systems. Material behavior, basic mechanics, fracture mechanics will be covered. Elastic fracture mechanics, linear/nonlinear fracture mechanics, fatigue crack propagation will be covered. Computational fracture mechanics will be covered and the analysis will be extended to micro/nano systems. We present the essential computational tools used in simulation of nano/multi-scale phenomena of nano/bio systems. These include selected topics in classical molecular dynamics, lattice mechanics, coarse-graining modeling, and multi-scale methods based on coupling of the atomistic and continuum models.

Textbook: Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures
Author: Ted Belytschko, Wing Kam Liu, and Brian Moran
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd,Chichester
Objective: This class covers Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian continuum mechanics, finite element formulations, and its applications to large deformation solids, fluids, and its interaction. The balance laws, such as conservation of mass, balances of linear and angular momentum and conservation of energy are derived within the “mixed” Lagrangian-Eulerian concept. The degenerations of the mixed description to the two classical descriptions, Lagrangian and Eulerian, are emphasized. The weak forms as well as its finite element formulations will then be derived followed by explicit and implicit FEM formulations and its applications. It also covers classical Lagrangian and Eulerian finite element methods. The concept of (nonlinear) finite element method and its notation will be first introduced. Weak forms for total Lagrangian formulation are derived from its governing equations. Nonlinear continuum mechanics including strain and stress measures will be also discussed with various constitutive models for elasticity and plasticity.

Textbook: Mechanical Metallurgy
Author: George E. Dieter
Publisher: McGraw Hill
Objective: At high temperature, the deformation mechanism of metallic materials change significantly due to the change in vacancy, dislocation motion, microstructure and etc.. The purpose of this graduate level course is to make students, after they successfully complete the course, explain, calculate and analyze various phenomena associated with high temperature metallic materials, such as time dependent behavior, creep, microstructural change, creep deformation mechanism, super plasticity, high temperature fracture, interaction of creep – fatigue, and creep life evaluation.

Objective: This course is designed to outline the macroscopic and microscopic aspects of mechanical behavior of metals and to emphasize recent developments in fracture mechanics and failure analysis. Topics that will be covered include fracture mechanics, Transition temperature approach to fracture control, Microstructural aspects of fracture, Fatigue and Fracture analysis.
