Introduces the behaviour of solid objects when subjected to loads. Students will learn methods used for calculating internal stresses and strains in solid materials.
Concepts of stress and strain in solid materials
Axially loaded members
Torsion in shafts
Bending of beams
Buckling of columns
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||apply appropriate methods to calculate internal stresses and strains in basic structures|
|2||demonstrate a basic understanding of the buckling behaviour of compression members|
|3||demonstrate the ability to analyse a beam structure and understand its internal behaviour under bending.|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- apply appropriate methods to calculate internal stresses and strains in basic structures
- demonstrate a basic understanding of the buckling behaviour of compression members
- demonstrate the ability to analyse a beam structure and understand its internal behaviour under bending.
