Self-Test Link

If you would like to take the self-test click on any title below as it applies to you.

Please note, postgraduate and undergraduate students taking the course for credit at the University of Lagos are required to use their matriculation numbers and their last names to log in(You can download the attached file for further instructions)

Visitors can simply use  “Visitor” + space + any number within the range of 1 -50. For example, “Visitor 24” and “Visitor 49” are valid.  “Visitor11″(no space between visitor and number) and “Visitor 53” (number out of range) are not valid.

Also note, the matriculation number and last name must be the same to log in successfully. Using “Visitor 25” as Matriculation Number also means you must “Visitor 25” as the last name to log in.

This is the page you will see when you click on the link:


After clicking on the Start button, this should appear:


you can choose the test you want to take.

This is where you can log in as a Visitor. Below, “Visitor 1” is used.


New Site for Continuum Mechanics I and II

The course site has been created with all Slides, Videos and other learning materials. You can visit the site by clicking here:
Please note that you will need to register (absolutely free) to be able to enroll for the courses. Enrollment allows you access to all the materials for each course. Only students taking the course for credit at the university of Lagos are required to use their matriculation numbers for registration at this stage. Please submit any queries or difficulties with registration, enrollment or access to the course materials.

Tutorial Three

We hereby present tutorial three as a correction rearrangement, in slides of most of the Q&A in chapter 3 of Continuum Mechanics for Modeling Simulation and Design.

Obviously, these cannot be covered in a single tutorial class. We will select a number of these if a tutorial is needed before you semester exams.

Week 12: Integral Field Theorems

Finally,…, in place of our Programming Clinic, we conclude this first set of lectures with a quick, largely computational approach to the Field theorems of Continua. This, combined with our earlier treatment of differential calculus, completes the application of the results of calculus to tensor objects.

Time did not permit us to look too deeply into some of these matters. Take this as a way to whet your appetite to a fruitful understanding of Continuum Mechanics. We can avoid further theoretical work and the covariant formulation by using Mathematica for our computations. We shall more of such in the next chapter where we shall begin to look at the geometric formulations of continua.
