Elasticity and Stress Concentration - A New Way of Thinking
Lectured by MURAKAMI
Theory of elasticity must be learned from the viewpoint of mechanics and not from the viewpoint of applied mathematics. In this lecture, first of all the basic but important principles of theory of elasticity will be lectured with a unique new way of thinking. The attractive solutions for many interesting problems will be shown. It will be lectured that the solutions for problems which look very difficult at a first glance can be solved easily with the application of the basic principles and the new way of thinking lectured in this course. 
The clear concept and correct understanding of Stress Concentration are essentially important for strength design and failure analysis.  
A visit to Elettra , the Synchrotron facility of Trieste, will be organized during the School
The official language of the course is English
PhD students will obtain 7 CFU for attending the summer school
