Structural Mechanics 1

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


Statics: Forces and systems of forces, force systems in two dimensions, trusses, center of gravity, bending moment, shear force and axial force diagrams, statically determinate and indeterminate beams and frames, deformations.
Mechanics of solids: Stress, strain, planar and 3-dimensional stresses, elastic materials, stress in beams.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student shall:
- be familiar with the basic concepts associated with statics and mechanics of solids
- be able to calculate the reaction forces for statically determinate structures, based on the applied external forces
- be able to calculate deformation in statically determinate structures
- be able to calculate internal section forces in statically determinate structures and draw diagrams for these
- be able to calculate internal stresses and strains over a cross-section of a structural element which is subjected to external forces or temperature changes
- design simple statically determinate structures and structural elements
