Theory of elasticity, also known as advanced mechanics of solids, is the branch of continuum mechanics which deals with the study/behaviour of deformable bodies. Theory of elasticity is an advanced subject in mechanical engineering and has also specific application in many other areas such as in health care/medical to understand the anatomy of living beings, dental prostheses and surgical implants. This basic study will be helpful for advance topics of solid mechanics such fatigue and fracture mechanics which deals with the initiation and propagation of cracks in solid materials. Thus, attending this course design engineers will gain theoretical knowledge of solid/continuum mechanics and solving methods in solid mechanics and interpret the results from the analysis.

- Gain fundamental knowledge of mechanics of deformable solids.
- Understand the basic field equations of linear elastic solids, force, stress, strain and equilibrium in solids.
- Examine the properties of deformable bodies and apply the basic concepts and theoretical laws and derived formulas in solving solid/structural mechanics problem.
- Use analytical techniques to predict deformation, internal force and failure of simple solids and structural components.
- Check the sufficiency of the strength, stiffness and stability of structural and machine elements.
