Teaching documents

Here are a few of the documents I use as projections when teaching at the Université de Lille, in France. Most are in French, some are in English. I hope you will find those useful.

Polycrystal plasticity

This class is tought at master's level in physics. It is part of a broader class on materials plasticity with other sections on dislocations, defects, and numerical modeling of defects (taught by P. Cordier and Ph. Carrez). My contribution aims at introducing the implication of plasticity on the materials macroscopic properties, with a focus on texture analysis, elasticity at the polycrystal scale, and an introduction to modeling.

Up until 2019, the class is given in French. There will be switch to English (with new teaching documents) in 2020. The slides below are in French. The updated and English version should be available next year.

Here is the ling to my classes documents on polycristal plasticity.
