||School of 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.
- solve problems in solid static analysis for axial, bending, and torsional loadings;
- solve problems in solid static design for simply supported beams and columns subjected
to a variety of loadings;
- understand and define the basic concepts, properties and variables in solid static
- understand the derivations of the equations and techniques commonly used in engineering
- understand the simplifications and assumptions of the equations and techniques commonly
used in engineering statics analysis.
