    Prerequisite: None

    This module introduces principal modelling techniques in solid mechanics and serves as a macro-mechanical complement to the courses Materials Science 1: Properties of Matter (MAT 100) and Functional Materials (MAT203) focusing on micromechanical aspects of materials science. Fundamental concepts (e.g. Newton's laws, force/movement, stress/strain, energy/work, statics/dynamics, friction/creep/fatigue etc.) will be studied to derive mechanical models for the description of the behaviour of materials. Corresponding applications for real-life design tasks are finally discussed to get insight into basic mechanics-based material selection criteria.
