Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students obtain practical experiences of motion and equilibrium of gases, liquids and solid deformable bodies. Obtain an overview and practical experience from the use of tensor calculus to solve practical problems of engineering practice. You will learn the basic principles of constitutive equations for various types of linear and nonlinear problems.

Course contents:
• Basics of tensors calculus
• Tensors of first degree, their properties.
• The transformation tensors
• Tensors of second and third degree, their properties.
• Stress tensor and deformation tensor. The main axis and the main stress.
• Equation of motion, Equations of equilibrium.
• Constitutive equations.
• Bounded and unbounded thermoelasticity problems,
• Fundamentals of nonlinear continuum mechanics.
