Unit description

Expands on the unit Introduction to Solid Mechanics to further investigate the mechanics of solid materials. Introduces methods to analyse internal stresses for beam subject to bending and shear. Presents the theory of stress and strain transformation and use of different methods to evaluate the deflection of flexural members.

Unit content

Calculation of Stresses in beam
Stress-Strain Transformations and Failure Theories
Deflection of Flexural Members

Learning outcomes

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:
1demonstrate an understanding of internal behaviour of beams subject to loading and ability to calculate the internal stresses
2transform stresses and strains using Mohr's Circle theory
3apply appropriate methods to determine deflections in flexural members

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of internal behaviour of beams subject to loading and ability to calculate the internal stresses
  2. transform stresses and strains using Mohr's Circle theory
  3. apply appropriate methods to determine deflections in flexural members

Notice

Intensive offerings may or may not be scheduled in every teaching period. Please refer to the timetable for further details.

Southern Cross University employs different teaching methods within units to provide students with the flexibility to choose the mode of learning that best suits them. SCU academics strive to use the latest approaches and, as a result, the learning modes and materials may change. The most current information regarding a unit will be provided to enrolled students at the beginning of the teaching period.
