Lattice defects and their role on mechanical properties of solid materials are lectured. Topics such as linear elasticity (stress, strain, Hooke's law) and dislocation theory are included.
Lattice defects pertinent to understand mechanical properties of materials are discussed with emphasis on the dislocation theory (Prof. Kato). Then, concepts of linear elasticity (stress, strain, Hooke's law, etc.) will be introduced (Prof. Onaka).
1. Introduction, 2. Lattice defects and dislocations, 3. Energy and elastic fields of dislocations, 4. Dislocations in Crystals, 5. Stress-strain curves, 6. Strengthening mechanisms, 7. Traction and stress, 8. Distortion and strain, 9. Hooke's law and elastic strain energy
