16.225 - Computational Mechanics of Materials Homework assignment # 1 Handed out: 9/10/03 Due: 9/24/03 September 22, 2003 1. Verify that the Euler-Lagrange equations corresponding to the Hu- Washizu functional are the field equations of linear elasticity. 2. Consistency test for constitutive models with a potential struc- ture (Computing assignment) Constitutive models that have a poten- tial structure suggest a useful verification test of their implementations. The idea is to make use of the fact that in these models stresses and tangent moduli are obtained by direct differentiation of the strain en- ergy density and compute the derived quantities in two different ways in order to compare them. The first way is directly from their implemen- tation; the second, by numerical differentiation of the function. This is explained in more detail in the algorithm described in the following box: 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
