Learning Outcomes
Students -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).
General Competences
• Apply knowledge in practice
• Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
• Work autonomously
• Work in teams
• Work in an international context
• Work in an interdisciplinary team
• Generate new research ideas
Course Content (Syllabus)
Introduction to the Thery of Elasticity, normal and shear stresses and strains, displacements, relations between stresses and strains, generalized Hooke's law, static and hyperstatic beam problems in tension / compression, simple and oblique bending (meutral line, interposition), Shearing, calculation of shear stresses, strains, angle at torsion of closed (full, thin-walled, mono- and multi-cell) and open sections, beam stability - buckling, energetic methods, Castigliano theorem.
