## MAE 3040: Mechanics of Solids (Fall 2015-2018)
Stress, strain, and deflection due to flexure and shear. Combined stresses, instability, nonsymmetric bending, torsion, and energy methods.
Prerequisites: Strength of Materials (ENGR 2140), must be in the professional engineering program.Text: Advanced Strength of Materials, 6th Edition, Arthur P. Boresi & Richard J. Schmidt, Wiley, 2003.Audience: Junior-level required course. |

## MAE 5040: Experimental Solid Mechanics (Spring 2015, Fall 2016-2018)
(Formerly MAE 5930: Special Topics.) Measurement of stress, strain, and related quantities. Topics include strain gauges, optical techniques, digital image correlation, dynamic measurements, and nanoscale measurements.
Prerequisites: Mechanics of Solids (MAE 3040), Instrumentation and Measurements (MAE 3340).Text: Experimental Solid Mechanics, 2nd Edition, Arun Shukla & James Dally, College House Enterprises, 2014.Audience: Senior elective and entry-level graduate course. |

NOTE: This class is cross-listed as MAE 6930: Special Topics, exclusively for graduate students. The two sections meet at the same time and have all the same lectures, but the 6930 students have an additional term project.

## MAE 6930: Micro-Mechanics of Materials (Spring 2018)
Graduate elective which covers the overlap between material science and solid mechanics. Deformation of single crystals, slip in poly-crystals, dislocation motion, strengthening mechanisms.
Prerequisites: Mechanics of Solids (MAE 3040), Material Science (MAE 2160).Text: Mechanical Behavior of Materials, Second Edition, Thomas H. Courtney, Waveland Press, 2000.Audience: Graduate students only. |

## MAE 6930: Micro-Mechanisms of Failure (Spring 2019)

Graduate elective which continues bridging the gap between material science and solid mechanics. Failure mechanisms include fracture, fatigue, creep, and embrittlement.

NOTE: This is a companion course to last year's Micro-Mechanics class, but the previous course is NOT a prerequisite. My intent is that no matter how often I teach these two courses, they can be taken in either order.
