This course covers the elements of mechanics of materials, experimental mechanics and design of space frames using commercial Finite Element Software. Topics covered include equilibrium of deformable body, Concepts of stress and strain, Mechanical properties of materials, Axial loading, thermal stress, Torsional loading, Bending behaviour, stress concentrations, Transverse shear loading, combined loadings, stress transformation, deflection of beams and shafts, statically indeterminate problems and buckling of columns. Experimental Mechanics laboratories include usage of strain gauges and photo-elastic stress measurements.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- be familiar with the fundamental concepts of the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures
- be able to undertake practical experiments that demonstrate these concepts
- be able to demonstrate the skills required to design and analyse a mechanical structure
- Experimental Laboratory report (15%)
- Problem Sets (15%)
- Design Problems report (15%)
- Mid semester exam (10%)
- Final Exam (45%)
