Elasticity Lecture 20: Introduction to elasticity (thermodynamics) Lecture 21: Generalization to 3D continuum elasticity Lecture 22: Special case: isotropic elasticity Lecture 23: Applications and examples … V. How things fail – and how to avoid it Important concepts: Isotropic elasticity • Isotropic elasticity = elastic properties do not depend on direction • In terms of the free energy change , this means that the change of the free energy does not depend on the direction of deformation • Rather, it depends on quantities that are independent on the direction of deformation (i.e., independent of coordinate system) • Idea: Use invariants of strain tensor to calculate free energy change – Volume change –...
