||College of Science and Engineering
Review of shear force and bending moment diagrams. Force systems. Pure bending of
elastic beams; composite beams, unsymmetrical sections. Shearing stresses in beams;
shear flow, shear centre. Analysis of plane stress and plane strain; Hookes law, stress
transformations, Mohrs circle. Torsion for circular sections. Compound stresses. Bending
deflection; double integration, moment area methods. Column behaviour, Euler load,
secant formula, short and long columns, slenderness ratio, effective length. Introduction
to theories of failure.
- determine stresses and strains in structural members subjected to axial, bending and
- define relationships between member forces, loads, deformations and material stresses
- describe various testing methods to determine various mechanical properties of materials;
- analyse simply supported beams and columns subjected to various types of loadings;
- calculate deflections in simply supported beams using various methods;
- carry out stress/strain/inertia transformation with respect to any mutually perpendicular
axes using the equations or Mohr's circles;
- demonstrate effective written communication skills through laboratory reports.
