This course is in all assigned curricula part of the STEOP.
This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2023S, VO, 2.0h, 3.0EC, to be held in blocked form

Properties

  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 3.0
  • Type: VO Lecture
  • Format: Hybrid

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe stress and strain in continuum micromechanics, to explain Eshelby‘s inclusion problem as well as to summarise the impacts of micromechanical effects on different scales. Furthermore they can summarise the relation between the theory of multiscale material modeling and practical problems in construction and biomedical engineering.

Subject of course

  • Basis of continuum micromechanics - representation volume element - stress and strain averages rules
  • concentration problem - Eshelby's matrix-inclusion problem
  • Mori-Tanaka and self-consistent schemes
  • higher-order averages-upscaling of strength
  • influence tensor concept multiscale poro-mechanics and thermo-mechanics
  • upscaling of transport properties
  • applications in civil and biomedical engineering

Teaching methods

Lecture at the blackboard; presentation of slide collection and selected scientific papers; open discussion with the students

Mode of examination

Written and oral

Additional information

 Whenever possible, courses are held in hybrid mode in a blocked format. If there is a lack of hybrid-capable lecture halls, the course will be held in a face-to-face or online format, depending on the infection situation.

At the beginning of the semester, a schedule survey is created in which students can enter their availability with regard to possible lecture dates.

Four to five VO units will then be offered in TISS.

Whenever possible, the course will be delivered in a hybrid mode in a blocked fashion. The lectures will take place in the lecture hall under the applicable security measures of the TU Vienna, see https://www.tuwien.at/tu-wien/corona.

In order to get access to the TUWEL course from the start of the semester, a non-binding electronic registration for the course "202. 649 Multiscale Material Modeling" in TISS is required.

 

Method:

Whenever possible, courses will be held in hybrid mode in a blocked format. In case of shortage of hybrid-capable lecture halls, the course will be held in face-to-face or online format according to the infection situation. The dates of the courses will be agreed upon in a schedule survey at the beginning of the semester. The exchange of information between lecturers and students also takes place via the TUWEL course of the course, where course documents are also made available. This includes lecture notes, the presentation slides for the exercise lectures, the specification sheet of the homework example.  

Grading scheme in the examination:

Written homework and oral exam at the end of the semester.

Required technical equipment for participation in course and exam:  

Whenever possible, courses will be held in hybrid mode in a blocked format. If there is a shortage of hybrid-capable lecture halls, the course will be held in a face-to-face or online format, depending on the infection situation.  The home study example will also require paper, writing equipment, and an electronic device to generate a .pdf file of the handwritten assignments.
