-will undestand stresses, deformations and displacements as the crucial properties for the design of components as well as the mechanical relations between these properties.
- will use these quantities for the design of components, mainly beams subjected to every type of loading (tension, compression, bending, shearing, torsion, combined loading).
- will understand and calculate instability phenomena of components (buckling).
- will apply energetic methods to the design of components, mainly beams subjected to every type of loading (tension, compression, bending, shearing, torsion, combined loading).
