In this course the concept of elasticity, an important property of solids will be discussed in a comprehensive way. Idealization of physical system, representing the idealized system through mathematical equation and finally finding solution of those equations are the key features that constitute the structure of this course. In this course emphasis will be given on both theory and applications.
