Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the definition of the time factor in the stress strain processes, with theoretical and experimental approaches to study the issue and the major benefits of these approaches to applications in practice. Topics: Rheological characteristics of basic symptoms in a wide range of natural and man-made materials The main physical resources of rheology of material (aging) - changes in structure or physical chemical material properties, utility properties Chemical sources of rheological changes and their relationship to ecology, industrial activities, as waste products of human existence and activity Rheology of rock materials - cause changes in properties, characteristic signs of changes, these changes in ways of slowing Rheology of concrete and steel reinforcement in natural and industrial conditions, and especially in terms of static and dynamic strength characteristics Rheological manifestations in landfills of industrial and municipal waste, bulk materials, soils, etc.
