Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Calculus, Linaer algebra, Mechanics

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to give a thorough understanding of basic concepts and definitions in Solid Mechanics. The student should be able to make use of simple sizing rules useful in basic engineering work and have a basis for further studies of the subject.

Course content

The course gives an introduction to solid mechanics. It discusses basic concepts and definitions, simple homogeneous stress states, deflections and stresses in beams, torques applied to shafts, stability of axially loaded columns, Hooke's generalised law, multidimensional stress and deformation analysis and yield criteria.

Teaching and working methods

The course is given during period 1 for I and period 3 for M. It consists of a theoretical part and laboratory work.
