Prof. Upadhyay teaches the following courses at LSU:

ME 7273: Advanced Stress Analysis in ME

This course teaches the exact (Theory of Elasticity) and approximate (Adv. Mechanics of Materials) methods to analyze solids and structures. These methods apply to the design and analysis of mechanical, industrial, aerospace, and civil structures.

ME 7953: Fundamentals of Continuum Mechanics

Continuum mechanics deals with the mathematical analysis of the thermomechanical responses of continuous media (both solids and fluids). This branch of mechanics unifies solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer, and is a cornerstone for most mathematical material models and numerical techniques (e.g., FEA) currently used in engineering. This course provides a thorough introduction to the fundamental concepts and methods used in continuum mechanics.

ME 4133: Machine Design I—Kinematics and Dynamics of Machinery

An undergraduate-level course that teaches kinematic and dynamic analysis and synthesis of mechanisms.
