Colloquium 10/27: Dr. Tetyana Malysheva on “Modeling of Elastic Solids”
On Monday October 27th at 3:30 in Math 357, Dr. Tetyana Malysheva from the University of Oklahoma will be talking about “Modeling of Elastic Solids”. The talk will be accessible to undergraduates and grad students. Abstract: In this talk, we will consider a variational approach to the modeling and numerical analysis in linear elasticity and thermoelasticity. The presented method is based on physical principles, geometry of an object, and appropriate approximating assumptions. We will derive strong and weak formulations for the Timoshenko beam model, and discuss a finite element method for numerical solution of forward and inverse problems in linear elasticity.
