A subdivision of Solid Mechanics
Division of Mechanics of materials

Though Mechanics of Materials includes the deformation and motion of all materials, this topic is usually interpreted to mean introductory solid mechanics. All material behavior can be included in this subdivision with appropriate links to special material behavior.

The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in this subdivision, you can list your name here (this can help small subdivisions grow and the participants communicate better; for large subdivisions a list of active participants is not needed).

  • Please help create content for a course on Advanced Strength of Materials. -- Banerjee 19:54, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

"In almost all cases occurring in practice, the strains are small" - Landau and Lipschitz, Theory of Elasticity.

Professor in a Strength of Material class to a student : OK, Now that you are standing, tell me which members of your body are in tension and which members are in compression ? Student: I dont know about compression prof, but surely my brain is experiencing extreme tension.
