Examines the responses of bodies or systems of bodies at rest and the internal stress-strain response of fluids and solids when subjected to loads.
Module 1: Properties of solids and fluids
Module 2: Stress and strain in static fluids
Module 3: Loads, freebody diagrams and equilibrium
Module 4: Internal forces and friction in solid materials
Module 5: Axial loads and torsion
Module 6: Bending and buckling
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||define and calculate load actions and frictional forces acting on bodies in equilibrium|
|2||define and calculate the forces acting on and in a static fluid|
|3||define and calculate internal stresses and strains in solid materials|
|4||analyse axial and shear forces, bending moments, and torsional and buckling behaviour in simple structures subjected to static loads|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- define and calculate load actions and frictional forces acting on bodies in equilibrium
- define and calculate the forces acting on and in a static fluid
- define and calculate internal stresses and strains in solid materials
- analyse axial and shear forces, bending moments, and torsional and buckling behaviour in simple structures subjected to static loads
