Teaching

Courses (2018-present):

Solid Mechanics and Materials, MAE203 (Fall 2018): This course covers topics in kinematics, conservation laws, constitutive equation of linear elastic solids, plasticity, and viscoelasticity.

Fundamentals of Solid Mechanics II, MAE131B (Winter 2018): Continuous mechanics of solids and its application to the mechanical response of machine and structural elements. Stress and strain in indicial notation; field equations and constitutive relations. Linear elastic stress analysis in torsion, plane stress and plane strain; stress concentrations; fracture mechanics. Extremum principles and structural stability. Viscoelasticity, plasticity, and failure criteria. Theorems of plastic limit analysis.

Experimental Techniques, MAE170 (Spring 2018, Spring 2019, Spring 2020, Spring 2021): Principles and practice of measurement and control and the design and conduct of experiments. Technical report writing. Lectures relate to dimensional analysis, error analysis, signal-to-noise problems, filtering, data acquisition and data reduction, as well as background of experiments and statistical analysis. Experiments relate to the use of electronic devices and sensors.
